Many Thanks for the information......I found the english version of the web-page of the supplier "Ship model OKUMOTO":
https://ship-model.net/?wovn=en

So they offering in moment models of
Santa Maria in scale 1:80
Endeavor in scale 1:80
and
La Couronne in scale 1:132

It seems, that the kit will be delivered without a jig, ???

I found the advertisment videos of the producer on youtube



"Making the Gun Deck" I did not find........

VERY interesting. I was wondering when / if the Japanese were going to get involved.
Okumoto becomes unsatisfactory with a commercially available sailing ship model kit and begins making his own structural model.

I really wonder if these are « legitimate » copies or they are not??Lol Seems like the witch hunter waging war on chinese kits only ,thas kinda a double standard and hypocrisy Lol,the chinese kits look much higher quality though.
