Artesania Latina’s New 1/65-Scale Vasa Kit

Looks like Artesania Latina is back producing new kits. This latest release looks especially promising, and note the serious attempt to up the standards of wooden ship model kit instructions. If you’re curious, it seems that you can download these directly from their website at http://artesanialatina.net.

Ages of Sail

We just received a big shipment of products from the “new and improved” Artesania Latina, so we’re finally recovering after the holidays depleted our stocks of this long-time popular brand. In addition, we’ve receive some new kits you might want to check out, as well as the return of an old favorite, the San Juan Nepomuceno. But, the biggest news by far is the release of their brand new kit of the 17th century Swedish warship Vasa.

This spectacular kit is made for the Expert Level modeler and is produced in 1/65-scale, making it one of the largest Vasa kits available at 42″ long and 34″ high. The kit makes heavy use of die-cast and photo-etched decorations, and there are a LOT of them!
