  1. I have been given the Mamoli Victory to build. Unfortunately, the first instruction sheet was missing. I managed to get a scan of their "Table 1" but I am missing the "Table 2". I am hoping that someone here could help me on this one. Thanks in advance.
  2. One thing to do is not use a sanding drum on my Dremel and sand other pieces of the same stock but collecting the sawdust in a small dish. Mix in some white glue and now you have the exact match for your wood. PVA glues do not sand that well so it would be good to find some other type of water soluble glue. HTH
  3. I believe that only Panart made a Royal Caroline kit. It was a good build.
  4. I really would love it if other kit manufacturers would try to build the model from the kit. Every so often, I come across something that makes me wonder - did they actually try to do this?
  5. If you are airbrushing, Tamiya acrylics can be thinned with standard hardware store lacquer thinner. A lot cheaper than Tamiya thinner. This also works with Gunze acrylics (Mr Hobby). Don't even think about trying it with any other acrylics unless you like a big gooey mess.
  6. Did AcrylicJob also provide the base? I am working on one for my Royal Caroline and it will have to be 36" x 27" x 12" - rather large.
  7. Those old kits are starting to resurface these days. I am currently working on a resurrection of the Billings Danmark (3 of them!) Best of luck
  8. A full build log can be found at: http://www.modelshipwrights.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=242693&ord=&page=1 HTH
  9. For those who want to do this version in 1/350 - good luck. To the best of my knowledge, the 1/350 is the 1941/42 version. As for the wood colour - they used hinoki cypress and not teak. FWIW
  10. Great work - thanks for sharing. I am working on the 1915 version with the Trumpeter photo-etch. I think that I might chicken out with those torpedo nets
