The Niña (the Spanish word for "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 Niña was Santa Clara. The name Niña was probably a pun on the name of her owner, Juan Niño. She was a caravel-type vessel.
The other ships of the Columbus expedition were the Pinta and the Santa María. The Niña was by far Columbus` favorite. She was originally three-mast lateen sail rigged caravela latina, but she was re-rigged as caravela redonda at Azores with square sails for better ocean performance.
On Columbus` first expedition, the Niña carried 24 men, captained by Vicente Yáñez Pinzón. They left Palos de la Frontera on August 3, 1492, stopping at the Canary Islands on August 12, 1492, and continued westward. Landfall was made in the Bahamas at dawn on October 12, 1492. After running the Santa Maria aground, Columbus returned on the Niña in early 1493, arriving in Palos de la Frontera on March 15.
The Niña joined a grand fleet of 17 ships for the second voyage to Hispaniola, becoming the flagship for an exploration of Cuba. She was the only ship to survive the 1495 hurricane, returning quickly to Spain in 1496.
.: Product Features :.
This model is made entirely of 3-point polygons.
The rudder can move left and right (with an ERC dial on the BODY).
To keep this model compatible with Poser 4, Poser Artist, and Vue d`Esprit, the sails are modelled in place and are not made of dynamic cloth.
Most of the materials use complex mapping and no templates are included.
The model will load into the scene at full size, in relation to the Poser people. You can then move the ship down (or your people up) to create scenes of the people on the decks.
If you want to render a scene without people, simply reset the size of the Nina model back to 100%.
Please keep in mind that this model was originally designed for distance shots. Although it has been tested to work fine in Poser, some textures may looked pixellated or blurred when viewed close-up.
