Santa Maria was one of Christopher Columbus's caravels with which he made an expedition to the West Indies and discovered America by mistake. In August 1492, Columbus launched the expedition with three caravels: Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta from the port of Palos de la Frontera, located on the south-west coast of Spain. At the end of two months, the sailors saw the coast in the night of October 12, 1492. Columbus thought he had joined the Indies. The exact shape and dimensions of the boat are not known. According to documents kept, Santa Maria had a draft of about 200 tons and a length of about 35 meters. She moved with five sails.

For example, a model 1:72 scale airplane measures8 inches / 20cm in length if the real object measures 14.4 m (1440 cm). The figurines in the 1:72 scale measure about 1 inch / 2.5cm high..
