Mamoli Friesland

Recommended Posts

The Friesland makes into a great model.  However one of my club memebrs built it and siad that the kit has several errors and flaws.  If you do your research and think outside the box you will build a masterpiece.  MSW will give you support and knowledge to build it.

I have built this kit & it does make into a nice model.The biggest flaw is the lower gunport metal frames - they need to be set back farther than the plans indicate or the cannons will stick out too far.Plans & instructions are ok.

current build - HMS Vanguard - Model Shipways

Thanks a lot David and Mark for your advice. And as you say David we can all rely on the support of MSW members. Mark I just noticed you are building the sergal Vasa which I was looking at as another choice...... Once again thanks, it's now over to the admiral she has got a plastic card. DAVID

I was about to mention this. Also, as mentioned in that build log, there's a rather detailed Dutch log:




I'm intending to make the Friesland my next model, so I'd be keen to follow your build log if you do decide to go for the Friesland.

Current Build: US Brig Syren, Model Shipways, 1:64


Future Build:  Friesland, Mamoli 1:75 / Alfred, The LumberYard, 1/8
