HMS Hunter by HMS_Surprise - Mamoli

The barrels come from an Artesania Latina kit, the slides are made from scratch.

I have decieded to put 6 carrondes on board, otherwise there would be no room for the crew to move.


This is a very brief summary, I will contribute some more very soon.

Hi rafterrat,

sorry for that very late reply.

The kit came from Mamoli but it was bought in 1995 and was of quite poor quality. I had to make a complete new frame. Also the design is very silly, a thing I did not notice when I bought the kit. The deck is too full, the crew has no room to move when you set up as ecommended. I have left of the "bridge" and one compagnion ways as well as four guns. These parts of the kit are of especially cruel quality! The lines of the hull are taken from "Arcitectura Navalis Mercantoria" of Chapman which is very nice. I will post some pics very soon...

Good luck and always remeber:


The TITANIC was built by professionals, the ARK was built by amateurs!
