Part#: MAMV47
1/100 Mamoli MV47
Description:

James Cook, the great discoverer of the Pacific region , was born in 1728 as the son of a farmer. Over a number of years he acquired seamanlike experience and in 1755 joined the British Royal Fleet where he made it to the rank of a “master” within a short period of time. In 1768 he was handed over the command of a scientific exploration trip to the South Pacific. The ship to be used for this project was the “Endeavour”, which was a remodelled brig. Its solid structure made it extremely seaworthy. In order to accommodate a group of astronomers and scientists the vessel was modified considerably. The Endeavour left Plymouth in the direction of Cape Horn and reached its port of destination, Tahiti, in April 1769. After completion of the necessary scientific studies, Cook went on towards New Zealand, where he remained until the end of March 1770. A total of 2400 miles of coastline were recorded.

Length: 430 mm, Height: 360 mm

Part#: MAMV46
1/57 Mamoli MV46 - Black Prince
Description:

During the Revolutionary War (1774 – 76) private vessels (privateers) were commissioned by the colonial rebel government to prey on British commerce everywhere and to capture, when possible, British ships. At the time of the Revolutionary War, Benjamin Franklin was ambassador to France. He was allowed to buy French built corsairs through an important ship broker. These corsairs were the predecessors of the Baltimore Clippers. The ships were painted black so as to be nearly invisible at night. They were named Black Prince and Black Princess. The crew were Portuguese seamen but captained by an American. They preyed on the British trade in English coastal waters and for over a year nearly destroyed Britain’s trade with the rest of the world.

Part#: MAMV35
1/72 Mamoli MV35 Hunter
Description:

The Hunter is a well-equipped cutter, built for the British Navy, with many more or less similar copies, in the second half of the seventeenth century. Its purpose was to face smugglers, who, incidentally, were the first to use this type of ship (it seems that the English shipyards built them in pairs; one for the smugglers and one for Customs). Of course, the Hunter was also used as a coast guard and for military functions of port survey, scouting, warding and so on. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, sports boats and those meant for the regattas were derived from these cutters. The model, reproduced on a scale of 1:72, is of a cutter built towards 1797. It is equipped with 12 guns and several culverins.

by Model Shipways
Plank-on-Bulkhead Kit

Model Shipways' Fair American is a reproduction of a model built over 200
years ago, now on exhibit at the U.S. Naval Academy Museum at Annapolis, MD.
She is said to represent the 14-gun privateer Fair American sailing out of Charleston in 1778.

of professional modelers. All structural hull parts and major fittings are laser cut,

second layer of planking, should you wish to build your model with a double
planked hull. More than 500 fittings of wood, brass and Britannia metal fittings
include 14 brass guns on wooden carriages, cannon, chainplates, bell, anchors
and wheel. Six plan sheets a 48 page instruction book by Erik A.R. Ronnberg, Jr.
and Ben Lankford, plus a 38-page guide to planking the hull make building easy.
(Display base and brass pedestals are not included.)
