  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. Greetings to everyone! This kit needs no introductions, as it is an old Heller, with many issues. In fact I have made, and/or attempted to kitbash this kit many times in the past. So basically the simple plan is this: repeat all the methods I used on the bomb ketch, with the experience and skill I got from that kit to the Royal Louis. The main issue this kit has, which had to be addressed is the horrendous wood grain that covers the entire side of the ship. It is off scale, and actually shouldn't exist at all. Plus the over the top wales that had to be trimmed down as well. With
  3. Hello all. Couldn't wait and I'm posting these photos with the sole purpose of starting my Royal Louis build log. I'm under the impression this will be a real challenge. Box and contents shown. I know before hand I won't be using some of the stuff in this kit. Like those metal boats: Plan to purchase wooden kits for those parts. Blocks: I'm planning to purchase blocks from an external source. Rigging thread: I will make my own. Too many metal parts. Still don't know which I will use or won't. Will decide in due time. Actual build photos will come later. All you see in the ph
  4. Hello to everyone! This is the beginning of my build of the Mamoli Royal Louis 1:90 scale. After wanting this kit for a few decades now, and having been inspired by Ulises Victoria's fabulous build here on Modelshipworld, I am pleased to begin my build of this fabulous 18th century vessel. All the contents look great, and everything is still sealed from the factory. Fittings and wood look to be of a superior quality than my Constructo La Flore.... Will keep all posted here on all build updates! Sargon
  5. Before anything, English is not my mother language so please be kind to my mistakes (there will be too many I'm afraid) and lack of nautical jargon. Well, this is my first build. You may think it's a pretty bold move for a beginner to model such an intricate ship as the Royal Louis but I fell in love at first sight with the model at the Musée National de la Marine in Paris a couple years ago. At the time, I had no interest whatsoever in ship modeling, which is a pity, and missed the opportunity of taking hundreds of pictures at the museum. Either way, that's the one...
  6. hello to all. this is my build log of the royal Louis. I had the frames laser cut out and scaled to 1/72 scale from the plans of 1/90. a company in pennsylvania did the work from plans I sent him. I have started to build her and am working on the1st planking of the hull. the frames and the decks are in place. the deck planking is maple with a cote of clear on them. so far no problems with anything. made my own holders for the false guns. cutting out the gun ports using a scroll saw blade. will post pictures hopefully this weekend if I can figure it out. terry
  7. Hi guys, this will be my first build log. It is of the Mamoli Royal Louis, it isn't exactly to the plans so far, the difference being main the bulwarks have been made thick and the railings are also a bit more bulky. This is the photo of the kit. Don't expect great photography and don't expect a nice clean build (it's my first...). I started it late December 2012. Currently it has been double planked and I am in the process of adding the fittings and fixing up the paint. I also have to finish the bottom of the side galleries. I redid the stern transom to fit it up, the kit h
