You are offerding on a wooden kit of the Santa Maria, made famous by Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage. The kit is in excellent condition and has not been started in any way. All the laser cut piece are still attached to their original wood sheets and the 2 large plastic boxes containing all the fittings are sealed shut and do not appear to have ever been opened. Latina rates the difficulty level at two anchors, recommended for beginning to intermediate modelers.
The contents of this model appear to be pristine and untouched. Although everything appears to be fully complete, I cannotguarantee this 100% as I have not taken an inventory of the hundreds of parts included. Therefore, I am selling this kit as-is with no returns.The outer box is not pristine and shows some wear. Having said this, I personally believe you will be very happy with this kit.

"The Santa Maria, originally named 'La Gallega', was owned by Juan de la Cosa, who sailed with Columbus as his Captain. On the 3rd of August 1492 she left the Spanish harbour of Palos de la Frontera, bound for the Canary Islands together with the carvels 'Pinta' and Nina'. On the 12th of October 1492 the sailor Rodrigo de Triana first sighted the land of the New World. They also discovered the islands of San Salvador, Juana, Fernandia, Isabel and Hispaniola. On Christmas Eve 1492 the Santa Maria hit a reef and broke up off the coast of Haiti. Her wood was used to build Fort Navidad, the first European colony in the New World."
