Been gone for too long, retired now, lot of time not so much money. I've been shopping around the internet and found some models I am willing to try. Can anyone tell me good or bad about the Latina model ships or the Constructo? I am think about taking on the trilogy (NIna, Pinta and Santa Maria.

The Latina ships are ok, they are generally good wood, but both my kit and my husband's kits from them were missing a couple parts ... not a big deal if you are creative, but their price is definitely lower than some other brands on the trio you mentioned. Also the instructions seem to be written in Spanish first and then translated to other languages. I'd assume by your location that you can read it - so you'd have a leg-up in that regard being that you'd be able to understand what's going on when the translation is, um, lacking.

First build in 40 years, ordered the Nina, Pinta & Santa Maria by Latina from Hobbylinc. Best price, free shipping. I'll start my build log as soon as I can if I can figure out how. This internet and forum posting is a new to me. It's gonna be awhile because they don't ship to Mexico; I have to wait for a friend to bring them down.
