LEAP#298 The Golden Hind

A nice diversion .. a simple kit of the Golden Hind (Model 9209) ended up in my shopping cart on an impulse. I’ve been curious about the recent popularity of these mini 3D metal models. I am guessing the availability and affordability of precision laser cutting equipment might have something to do with it. The Metal Earth brand is often seen in toy retailers (it even has its own sub-reddit!), but the model designs all see to be common from a few Chinese manufacturers. The model I have here comes from Shantou Mini Qute Trading Co. Ltd. As always, all notes in the Little Electronics & Arduino Projects repo on GitHub hero_image
