cdogg Posted December 10, 2013 Share #1 Posted December 10, 2013 I just grabbed the Mamoli Golden Hind kit last week, and it has a major issue that may be of great concern for some builders. The decorative silk screened mahogany is no longer produced by Mamoli. According to Alessandro at Mamoli, they were having too many issues with the paint staying in the mahogany so they replaced the parts with card stock. They started doing this with the kit about 4 years ago. So, if your kit is older than 2009, you may get the silk screened parts but they may look like they are damaged I am guessing. You can imagine my shock when I pulled the cardboard sheet out of the box, the one part I really wanted to see!!! I was told I could either use the cardstock cut out or take 0.5mm mahogany strips to paint them myself. I suppose with some practice it could work. Just a heads up. The kit looks pretty good otherwise, although the instructions are not very friendly and might scare off a first time builder. This will be my spring 2014 project. Anyone else on MSW have this kit? mtaylor 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
