Mamoli HMS Victory 1/90

Recommended Posts

My momma told me no question is stupid, here we go.

Have completed plan #1 & #2 on mamoli's victory had a minor error on the stern gallery and had to redo all went well.


Question starting plan #3  start of planking: it calls for #83 & 84 lime MEAS 1,5X5 the 1X5 is width and thickness the other 5 is confusing can someone explain to a mentally defecient modeler as my self the 2nd 5.

Try replacing the "'," with "." and it'll make more sense:  1.5X5 - It is just a different notation for the decimal point.  Definitely not a stupid question, just a translation issue.


By the way -  it'd be great if you could start a build log for your work.  We love to see other builders progress around these parts!

Hello, John, and welcome aboard!  Grew up in Connecticut - lived in Groton for many years.  Glad to see folks from the old stomping grounds!  Ditto what Bob suggested - start a build log when you get a chance.  It is a great way to learn from the folks here.

Hello fellows , I'm a retired VIetnam Vet and have started a Mamoli HMS Victory a year ago and due to a move have recently created my new shop and began at the ship , I'm only at the deck planking ,my problem  is that I have misplaced the construction plans , I have table 1and 2 and a full sheet drawing which I imagine a can work my way through if necessary   Was wondering where I could get a complete set of plans ... I live in Marin co. Cal  , near Sausalito ..

All of us I consider it the MSW crank Club all over 55 I hit 70 in a couple weeks, I got cranky when my bank called me when I turned 55 and said I am eligible for senior citizen silver checking, and when I entered a restaurant or store back then and they said your eligible for a seniors discount.


I'd show my righteous indignation I'm not a senior I'll pay full price. Stayed cranky ever after :angry: but now I enjoy receiving those perks even 10 bucks off my 5th hair cut.

I'll exempt you just do not look like you could ever be cranky. ;)
