The Pinta, two of the ships in Columbus' fleet were known as caravels. A caravel had a shallower draft than a nao (Santa Maria), so it could move around in the water more easily. A caravel was 150-300 tons. It did not have much cargo space, but it was able to sail over difficult waters easily. It was square-rigged on its foremasts and mainmasts, but used a lateen sail on the mizzen to help in tacking. It was so easy to control that sailors could easily explore shallow bays and the mouths of rivers. A caravel could hold about twenty crew members. They usually slept on the deck and would go below only if the weather was bad. Pinta was a caravel, a smaller, lighter, and faster ship than the tubby Santa Maria. Nina had three masts, and most likely carried sails like those of Santa Maria, except for the topsail, and perhaps the spritsail.

Amati presents a superlative Pinta ship model. Kit features plank-on-bulkhead construction with pre-cut frames and keel. Fittings are realistically reproduced in cast metal, brass and hardwoods. Sailcloth, rigging line, brightly colored flags and pennants are all supplied. Pinta is armed with two machine turned brass cannon. Kit is complete with detailed plans and instructions.
 


The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
