Royal Louis By Sargon - Mamoli - Scale 1:90 - 1st Rate French 3 Decker

Recommended Posts

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! :)

I built this kit quite some time ago,so I am looking forward to following along.  Be sure to inventory the parts - I remember that mine was way short on some of the planking strips. also,check the bulkheads against the plans - some of mine were very poorly cut. Above all,enjoy!

Ahoy Mark! 

 

That's fabulous that you built the Royal Louis! I'm a very big fan of this design... I'll make sure to do a good inventory on the parts- thanks for the heads up! 

 

BTW, I love your build of the 18th century Spanish Galleon... it's such a rare subject to see modeled, and you are doing a great job! :)

Thank you Zappto! It is hard making a choice, especially when there are so many excellent choices - such as your beautiful Dutch Friesland! It's a beautiful ship, and looking great....  Looking forward to seeing your progress!

Hi Sargon! This ship is next up in my own shipyard as the kit is in the mail to me as I type this. I think I will pull up a chair and follow along. It will be nice to have some company on the build. Looking forward to seeing what you do with yours! :)

hello there,

i had this kit before ... (and i turn it back ... i payed around 1200 dollar so it make me upset to dill with the bulkheads problems of that kit ,but dont worry about that ... you can fix all the problems like i said i turn it back only because i payed a lot on it .... )

  

a few tips about the bulkheads problems :)

 

1. before you will start gluing and fixing the bulkheads ... just make sure that all the bulkheads are symmetrical in both sides you can use a card for that  (dont trust the plans even at the plans its not symmetrical  )

 

2.be sure to fix all the bulkheads on the same level ! (i mean to make them on the exact level on the deck line) , im not remember if the deck line its a flat line or there is a curve ... just check in in your plans and if there is a curve line just measure the distance from the bottom to each deck line in every frame ... and do the same position when you will glue the frames on the keel ,

after all ... you will notice that there is some bulkheads that going in from the planks line and some of them going out ,

now take your time to fix them (even if it will take you forever .... dont jump to the second process until you will finish this process !!!!)

 

 

Best regards 

Michael.

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.
