Artesania Latina are no longer in business. However some kits and accessories are still available through wholesalers. Please enquire for availability and price of any item you want.

They produced high quality historic scale model wooden ship kits. All Artesania Latina model ship kits featured plank-on-bulkhead construction, cloth sails, rigging lines, brass fittings, ornamentation, and other details. Many parts are laser cut for accuracy. These magnificent kits include extensive instructions in full color, plans in color, and all of them include full scale rigging diagrams. These wooden ship models are some of the best in the world. Some like HMS Endeavour could take up to 400 hours to finish as they are made from exact plans and replicas of the prototype ships, using wood that is cut from the finest planks and molded to fit exactly.

For the information of our customers some ships have been marked "Discontinued" meaning that they are no longer being produced by Artesania and others as "Check Availability" meaning that there are none available at present in Australia but Artesania is still producing the kit. Please enquire if you interested in a ship as to availability as this can change without notice.
