She was originally named "Santa Clara" but was nicknamed and became widely known as "Nina". There is not much contemporary information on the two caravels, except for the few oblique references that can be found in a resume of Columbus Journal. Nevertheless, two things are pretty sure: both ships belonged to the Pinzon family, and both began life with lateen sails. Then during the first stop at the Canary Island, the Pinta replaced its lateen sails with square sails. This operation, together with the substitution of the mast delayed the departure by four weeks.

Columbus always referred to NiƱa and Pinta as the Caravels. The "Nina" includes all wooden and metal accessories, with precision-cut wooden keels, frames, and decks.

For a museum quality finish, sails and flags are included, as well as realistic wooden planking, masts, and riggings. This brand new kit comes with detailed English instructions, though the "Nina" is best for intermediate to advanced builders!
