  1. It is finally time to start the new build! Royal Louis by Mamoli. This will be my third ship in my series of French warships. First being La Couronne, second Soleil Royal and now Royal Louis. My goal with these is to show an evolution of ship building and design throughout the 17th century and into the 18th. I am no expert on the topic, and this is really just for fun but, it has been a very learning and exciting ride so far. Yes, Soleil Royal is still under construction and I have no intention of leaving her unfinished. Much like I did during L.C.'s build, I will be swapping back
  2. So here I start another Build Log... This being my 3rd wooden model ship started, and only one being completed (the first perhaps a little bit over my head), I purchased this model kit on Ebay for a very good price about 20 months ago and actually only began this kit in the late fall last year. At first I was not going to do a build log as I always find my time limited with regards to posting progress and updates but given the lack of build logs for this particular Mamoli kit (another one, the first on this forum, just recently started this last month), I thought I would start
  3. Where do I start? First, it’s great to find this forum and be able to obtain nearly instantaneous expertise and advice! Of course the first piece of sage advice was in essence, ‘... first time builders don’t start with HMS Victory!!’... and I fully understand that sound advice. But with your help and good Lord willing, I will succeed. I do plan to spend some time rooting around on this grand site to find pertinent information of which I’ve already found and am reading some. But thank you in advance for all the assistance/advice I’m sure to receive (and want!). That’s always better than ‘I
  4. Many years ago when I was working on the Syren, I decided that I wished to have a model ship finished sooner rather than later, as the Syren was going to take a while. There is strong irony in that sentence, but I'll move on. I also wanted to build a wooden model from a kit, as I'd never purchased a wooden ship kit before. The Mini-Mamoli kit of the Nina eventually ended up on the workbench. The start of this project was around 2010 or so. Below is the front of the box complete with dried glue, wood strips and sawdust. I'm going to post the photos I've taken through the y
  5. This is my first kit build. I've dabbled with RC planes for a few years so maybe some of that experience will help me as I come up to speed building ships. I started in late December and kept my build log off-line. I meant to start the log here earlier, but just didn't take the time until now. The dates when I made my first entries are noted as follows. 12/27/2017 I purchased the Mamoli Yacht America as my first kit and received it on 12/18/2017. I selected this kit because I think it is a beautiful ship with great lines, and I also thought it would be a reasonable kit to star
  6. Hi All, After my build of the Half Moon, I started buiding the Friesland of Mamoli. However, when the 2nd planking was nearly done, I paused buiding due to all kinds of circumstances. Now that I'm working from home for 2 months already (due to Corona), I picked up buiding again. I'll post some pictures of the buid in 2013, end then continue where I left off. I hope to finish this build, I didn't start a report earlier because I was afraid I wouldn't keep it up. But now I built for 2 months already, I dare to start. this report.
  7. Hello and welcome to all. I guess luck was on my side when I found this kit very cheaply on eBay. I certainly had concerns it would be incomplete yet took a chance and was excited when it arrived as the only contents package in the kit that had been opened was the planking bag. I don't think any are missing but if there are they can be easily sourced. Its a very old kit and on inspection I found the keel, deck and bulkheads to be very roughly cut which will require some recutting and repairing. All the other parts including cast metal, brass and pre finished hardwoods are in great co
  8. January 2014 – After 21 years of sitting in a large box of packing peanuts I decided to resurrect the Mamoli Constitution. Luckily I had packed everything carefully. The ship’s hull and some of the tools were in the box, the remaining wood and parts were taped up in the original kit box. The scale of the model is 1:93. I pulled the plans and started to review where I left the build off. I had completed the outer hull (which is double planked on bulkheads), including the green tiles representing each of the copper plates. The main deck was not planked and the forward bulkhead while started on
  9. Hello. It is all started in 1990 when I got a magazine with paper model of Golden Hind in it. I never succeeded to build it then. Finally now I do it from wood, not paper.... This is my second model ship from wood I did the hull. Next is rigging. Flint
  10. Well it's time to get this build log underway. Thanks to mtaylor who put the idear into my head. I bought The Lexington American Brig by C.Mamoli kit back in 2013, I started it then ran into some real life problems. I started on the Lexington, and soon ran into my 1st problem as the instructions in my mind are awfull. I have made a lot of plastic models, ships, tanks etc. but never a wooden ship. So as per instructions i start with adding the bulkheads to the keel, once that was done i started on the mahogany deck sheet. Then added the transo
  11. Many years ago (25-30?), before the advent of the internet, I bought and started construction of this cross section of the USS Constitution. It may have been following a visit to that venerable ship in Boston that I felt so inspired. I got the frame built,deck beams formed and installed, and the planking done outside and in. At that time I started to feel overwhelmed,with many questions that needed answering before I went any further. With no help readily available I packed the unfinished kit away. Someday. I never lost my love of wooden ships and had the opportunity to visit several incl
  12. This will be my first wooded model kit and winter project. I'm about ready to lay the keel and begin assembly of the hull timbers. All helpful tips will be appreciated. Thanks, Dave
  13. Hi. I am 14 and I am a electric wheelchair user and I am not very strong. My carer will be doing all the physical work like lifting the glue and cutting the timbers. I wanted to build a wooden model ship like my carer Antony UK. We started the black pearl but the magazines arrived for the first few weeks then nothing so I cancelled the subscription. I have just bought this from Cornwall Model Boats. The Black Queen. http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/mamoli_MM60.html It's the Mini Mamoli series and it's a beginners model. Solid hull is a nice way for me to start. My ca
  14. I started this build log for one reason, there wasn't much of these being built for such an important ship. I tried my hand at the bluenose 2 as a first build and ended up abandoning her... let's just say one late night there was a shipwreck, might end up being a scratch build in the distant future. For know I'm tackling mamoli's kit. At first I noticed the plans are so much worse then artisana's, thank God for the interwebz as I'm learning how to build from those befor me. The wood as well is in very poor quality, I had a warp in the keel and the balkheads were very badly cut (all pre-cut by
  15. Thought I would start my build log, have just had a good look at Gil's build, am truly inspired, so here goes... Am currently approx. 90 hrs into a build that I started about 11 and a half years ago, two children and a major house move/extension have seen her in dry dock for 5 years now, but house work is nearly at an end so with a bit of luck should be back in the boatshed in the next couple of months, should be done for Xmas (note: didn't say which year!!)
  16. Greetings all! My first post is to display the find that brought me here. I found this kit in a thrift store down the street. They wanted $100 for it, but gave me a military discount! I was thrilled, since I have been to see the ship when I was on a business trip in Boston. It really made an impression on me. I enjoyed the museum. I learned about the time during a storm when the ship came loose from its lines and was swinging around on its remaining moorings. It swung into the modern steel warship moored next to it and did extreme damage to it, while taking only scratches
  17. i start this ship at January 18, 2010 still in progress of Building i belive it took time more than the real on i restart working after year and half of stoping it i just finish all the cooper things and next week i will start to finish all the plank and gun port hope not taking long time to finish

  19. Hey anyone, Since I finished my Revell 1:96 Plastic Constitution in the spring, I've been wanting to get into wood modeling. As I've only been a plastic modeler to date, I was a bit apprehensive as it feels like a whole new skill set (which I don't have). I've done nothing with wood, other than trim a few tree branches along the way. So, with that in mind, my first wood ship was the Midwest Peterboro canoe (at 1:12). It took maybe 6 weeks to do (I never seem to do any of this fast), and here's the result: Next up, I needed more experience. I have a Syren kit "on deck", b
  20. Hello again folks, After several moves from country to country during the last couple years, i finally settled with my Family in Germany and i decided to get back on track with my Revell Connie. I have a 2-year-old Boy now so need to prepare, 2 more years and he will help me with next projects However to my shock i found the original box damaged, masts broken, decks warped as from heat exposure, several pieces missing etc. only the Hull pieces have survived intact - this got me thinking about kit-bashing, semi-scratch-building her from wood around the existing Hull but f
  21. Hello, encouraged by Kikatinalongs i will submit my own build log of a carrack. I had the fortune to buy it at an auction for the equivalent of 20 $. Although not complete and lacking plans. I bought the plan from cornwall model boats. From start my intension was to use the wood as spare. The big con with my kit, which is quite old probably at least 30 years old, is the quality of metal casting. It is brittle and badly cast. From a personal view i think it quite ugly. Looks like someone put a caravan on top of a lumberyard. Mamoli did not bother to check how guns or windlass were constructed i
  22. With the extra leisure time on my hands I decided to break out another kit from my stash to have more to do while waiting for the glue to dry on my Resolution. Mamoli/Dusek Gretel This will be my 2nd time around with this kit. For some reason I am attracted to Mamoli kits. even though they have their shortcomings compared to some of the other manufacturers. My modeling goal is more of an art piece rather than an historically correct masterpiece, and since some Mamoli kits seem rather whimsical in some respects, that may be why I am attracted to them.
  23. It's with a little trepidation that I start my first build log on MSW. The Roter Lowe is my third plank-on-bulkhead build, the first being Constructo's Enterprise, followed up by AL's Renard. It's by far the most complex build I've undertaken, and my first with multiple gun decks and decorative woodwork. In this kit, the decorations are a mix of inlaid wood and printed cardboard. Not sure how I feel about the cardboard, yet. The materials look nice and the instructions come on five dual-sided sheets of plans. I'm a bit concerned because the guns on the enclosed gun deck are to be mounted on c
  24. Greetings everyone, This is my very first build, but I can tell I am hooked. I'm sure this will be the first of many. As of this posting, we are well underway: false keel and bulkhead framing first layer hull planking in boxwood second layer hull planking in walnut deck planking with tanganyka--a few flaws here, but I think these will be hidden by the inside wale planking It's time to cut the canon portholes--which makes me pretty nervous. I also have some questions about the inside wale plan
  25. A few weeks ago, whilst on holiday in Lerici, Italy, I happened to come across a box in a junk shop containing the Mamoli 1:55 model kit Roter Lowe. The shop wanted €5 (about US$6) for the kit, but could (needless to say!), offer no guarantee that all parts were included! However, for €5 it seemed worth a punt and the plastic box of parts and other component bags were unopened (although a couple of spars were broken -but looked as if they could be repaired)! This is my first model build and I must admit that it is proving challenging, not helped by the very poor English translation of th
