Wooden Ship Kits

Santa Maria, Pinta, Nina,Kit

On the fateful day of October 12th 1492 an Italian, in the service of Spain, planted the Spanish flag on an island off the Eastern shore of the New World, as yet, unknown to the European. This extrordanary adventure was due to the ever present perseverance of Cristopher Columbus. Haunted by the conviction that the Atlantic ocean was not the end of the world but the gateway to Asia. Though he never made it to India, his intended destination, his vision, irrevocably changed the way we view the world.
