Pinta. Caravel of Columbus 1:50

Mantua Pinta. Caravel of Columbus 1:50

The "Pinta" together with the Nina and the Santa Maria, formed the fleet for the voyage of discovery led by Christopher Columbus. She was originally lateen rigged with one mast square rigged (caravela redonda) but was refitted just 10 days into the expedition leaving just the rear mast lateen rigged.
The kit comes as standard with sailcloth though an additional prebound and stitched set is available as an option.

Plank on frame hull construction
Scale 1:50
Length 570mm

Third ship of Columbus' expedition, Pinta was a square sails caravel. The sails consisted of a square foresail and great mainsail, while the mizzenmast, supported a long yard for lateen triangular sail. It had a poop quarterdeck and, unlike the sister-ship Nina, also forecastle. The Pinta was the fastest of the three ships, confirming the logbooks, which indicated that this caravel was during the voyage often ahead of the two other ships.

The Mantua kit features the following: A plank on frame hull construction, building plans with general details, English instructions, lost wax brass castings walnut or lime planking, wooden masts and spars, brass and walnut fittings, etched brass details, rigging cord, sailcloth and silk flag. All sheet ply sections are laser cut for accuracy.
