Let's look deeper at this kit and start with the perfectly lasered plywood

And we go on with the other lasered parts.

The rope. Very good looking even I think it might be a little bit oversized.

The Flags are a bit of a weakness of this otherwise great kit as they are just printed paper.

You even get pre-sewn sails

english, french, german and italian.

Conclusion

This is a great kit of a spanish galleon. A wonderful example of how small, dedicated companies with a lot of love for

detail can develop wonderful, affordable, new innovative model kits these days. 

 

The choice of the really first-class and unusual woods from controlled felling - I like this environmental protection

thought - connected with the great illustrated instructions - they do fulfil their task well and leave few to no questions

unanswered - round this kit off. 

 

All parts are really very good up to high quality and you can feel the attention made to details in this kit. I can't say for

sure if its a intermediate or advanced kit but either way it is worth to build it. Great job done by this small spanish

company! Highly recommended! And if not available in the states ask your prefered shop to get it

 

Disarmodel currently lists this model for unbelievable €160, and that represents really good value for money for this

nice kit. Honestly we think it is too cheap again 🙂

 

My sincere thanks go to Disarmodel for sending this kit for review here on Model Ship World. To buy, ask your favorite
dealer or directly at https://www.disarmodel.com/nivel-4/29-santiago-de-compostela-galeon-del-s-xvi-8436552884188.html

I have been building an (English) galeon for a few years now and did quite a lot of research.

 

This model is very correct.

shape, colors, armament, everything looks OK 

And, the fore mast is placed in front of the forecastle at the beakhead.

 

Why  bothering to build a galeon in scratch, as something like this is for sale ;)
