  1. Nice, simple kits, and still seen at shows from time to time. A good entry level that many modellers will recall.

  2. Nicely done, sir...something I wouldn't attempt, however. 🙂

    Great work, P.K.!

    But I wouldn´t use those figures... I have that same kit in my stash and I am sure that the scale of the ship doesn´t correspond to that of the figures. They look way too small, or the ship way too big. I am pretty sure that figures are OK but the true scale of Revell's Santa Maria is NOT 1:90 but something about 1:75, 1:72, maybe 1:70 or even 1:65... Columbus' ships were small nutshells, but with those figures on deck the Santa Maria looks like a transatlantic.

    If I eventually build it I suppose I will modify some 1:72 figures, then pray to get a final result half as good as yours.

  4. PK, nice work all around, and especially on the figures. I started one years ago, got the hull together, and it has languished ever since.
    I started out on Revell ships, then went into aircraft, stuck with them. I do look at tanks and figures every now and then.
    Good to see this again.
    Is it Heller that had the Nina and the Pinta?

  5. PK,
    I am indeed impressed. Excellent job. I really like it.

  6. Nice clean job, it looks great!

  7. Great build, well done !

    With regard to the criteria and the crew was such a desire buyer.
    This is after 30 years my third ship but not my domain to make navy,
    Normal Navy in my domain aviation .
    But it was a challenge for many years to make the boat from such basics.
    has a customer and a buyer last word.
    possible over the year again what the ship but now back to the aircraft.
    Thanks for the compliments.

    • PK, you do well at whatever you do. Sailing ships are such a draw, I always wanted to do a clipper, like Cutty Sark, but haven't, so far.
      They make a nice decoration, like the old Revell spanish Galleon. I saw one built up in a hobby shop years ago. Shoulda bought the kit!
      That and any Viking ship. The old Aurora one is back, again. When I was in elementary school, one of my friends Father built it. I was enthralled.
