Mantua/Sergal 1/60 HMY Britannia 1893 Americas Cup Yacht Kit 733
After the Prince of Wales' nephew Kaiser Wilhelm II acquired the racing cutter Thistle in 1891, her Scottish designer George Lennox Watson received a commission from Edward VII for a sailing yacht in 1892. He designed the Britannia to the "Length And Sail Area Rule" as a First Class cutter and had her built alongside his America's Cup challenger Valkyrie II at the D&W Henderson Yard on the River Clyde. She was launched on April 20th, 1893, a week ahead of Valkyrie II. By the end of her first year's racing, the Britannia had scored thirty-three wins from forty-three starts. In her second season, she won all seven races for the big class yachts on the French Riviera, and then beat the 1893 America's Cup defender Vigilant in home waters. Despite a lull in big yacht racing after 1897, the Britannia served as a trial horse for Sir Thomas Lipton's challenger Shamrock I, and later passed on to several owners in a cruising trim with raised bulwarks. A new replica of the Britannia is currently awaiting trial in Arkhangelsk, Russia, after her shipyard has arrogated her from her legal owner.

Mantua/Sergal 1/50 Nina Christopher Columbus's Caravel 756
The Nima (the Spanish word for "little girl") was one of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first voyage towards the Indies in 1492. The real name of the Nina was Santa Clara. The name Nina was probably a pun on the name of her owner, Juan Nino. She was a caravel-type vessel. The other ships of the Columbus expedition were the caravel Pinta and the Carrack-type Santa Maria. The Nina was by far Columbus' favorite. She was originally lateen sail rigged caravela latina, but she was re-rigged as caravela redonda at Azores with square sails for better ocean performance. There is no authentic documentation on the specifics of the Nina's design. Often said to have had three masts, there is some evidence she may have had four masts.
