Minairons release a second Galleon
« on: April 09, 2018, 09:47:07 PM »

We've just made available the second model of our 1:600 scale Age of Sail Ships range. Now it's been the turn for a late galleon, showing some features different to those of the former one (such as the bow piece or stern design, for instance), although compatible to it thanks to the chance to interchange some parts between them. The new kit is inclusive of a flags set of 1640-1653 Catalan ensign, flags and pennant --with several more sets available on our website.


This is what a built sample looks like, once superbly painted by Julián of Model J Ship (worth to point out he again chose a rigging option different to the one actually in kit):




If eventually interested in this new model kit, please note that, due to a silly misunderstanding with my resin caster (my fault, admittedly), the number of model kits actually available right now is smaller than due; so there's some risk of finding an empty bookshelf if you don't rush fast enough to reserve your sample! Otherwise, you might have to wait a few weeks until a new, larger batch is cast.


She's priced the same as her earlier sister --that is, €15.95.

Well, we're right now working on an early 1700s ship of the line:



After this, we're probably going to switch to smaller ships. We've got in mind a series of xebecs: a regular one (all lateen rigged), and another 'hybrid' one (with square rigging at main mast, also known as xebec-pollacre). After this... well, inch' allah! who knows?
