These are LOVELY models, Jonas. The white lining on the Santísima is exceptional. And the three different-colored boats! Why did you decide to go with the white masts?

Thank you very much. I don't remember why I choose the colour of the masts anymore, but I guess I saw it in a picture and thought it looked nice. That's usually how I decide on the colour for these old ships. There's some good reference pictures out there for a few of the ships. Santisima is one of them, but she on the other hand has several.

Very nice boats Jonas, especially Santísima Trinidad :beer:
The truth is that the idea of adding Langton stern mask is a succes :thumbsup:
