In My opinion Mamoli isn't one of the best brands. their instructions are incomplete and limited English skills. their wood quality is poor. If you want to do the Constitution Model shipways has the best kit.

What Floyd said... but I'll add that Bluejacket has one that nice also but while MS is of the early 20th century rebuild, Bluejacket's closer to the ship as built.   There's differences in the way the models are built and the Bluejacket may not appeal to you.

Just what I expected,,thanks so much for the advice,,Im most likely going to buy the one at the constitution museum, as I live in Quincy ma.and will be visiting there when the weather breaks (16" of snow today) plus the proceeds  also support the connie,and it is the model shipways version,,Im a long way off though, first  finishing the plastic revel one, then the wooden Uss Syren,,

Thanks again mates,,

Have only half built one Mamoli kit (Golden Hind). Only half built her because that was all that came in the kit! Would never, ever buy another kit from them!

Remember that Dusek is now reissuing the Mamoli kits. Quality can not be compared to the old kits before the fire...

Look here:

Mamoli model kits are back

Exactly, cant complain about the wood, some stuff was redone and Daniel is always willing to send parts if something is missing, also it's nice communicating with him on any topic.

 

DusekShipKits > Mamoli

I think the Connie museum's model is the one made by Blue Jacket.

I think you're right Scallywag.   And as I pointed out earlier, the Bluejacket one is based on much earlier look than the MS.   The MS version is based on the 1927 rebuild (I think that's the one or close to it).  The MS is based on as she looked in the early 1800's....

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
