THE SHIP THAT CHANGED HISTORY: CARAVEL LA NIÑA

Embark on a journey to the New World with La Niña! This is a beautiful wooden model ship kit for one of the three Spanish caravels used by Christopher Columbus on the first voyage to the New World in 1492. Built in the shipyards of the Port of Moguer (Huelva, Andalusia) a few years before the travel, she had to be the flagship of the expedition after the stranding of the Santa Maria.

The expedition departed from Puerto de Palos to the Canary Islands on August 3rd, 1492. After discovering the New World the La Niña would return with Christopher Columbus on board reaching Lisbon on March 4th and finally the port of Palos (Spain) on March 15th, 1493.

CONTENTS OF THE ARTESANIA LATINA LA NIÑA CARAVEL WOODEN MODEL SHIP KIT

Build your La Niña wooden model ship kit at 1:65 scale. Its system of assembly by means of false keel and frames resembles its design to the one of the real ship. Once it is built, this caravel with which America was discovered measures 16.33” (415mm) length, 4.37” (111mm width) and 19.48” (495mm) height.

The model box brings all the needed parts to build it: high precision laser-cut board parts, wooden parts and birch veneer, various brass parts, metal and fabric as accessories, high quality photo-etched brass parts, as well as ready-to-fit hand-sewn sails. As a bonus, it includes the wooden base for its exhibition.

For the assembly of the model La Niña, one of the most famous ships in history, you can follow Artesania Latina’s complete step-by-step full colour instructions, accompanied by the drawings of the completed boat, both of them on DVD format for computer (Windows and Mac). The kit does not include printed instructions. You can also download the digital instructions for free from Artesania Latina’s website.
