C.Mamoli's Yacht Mary.

Postby CharlesEdward » Fri Apr 20, 2012 11:40 am

I purchased this kit from Model Expo in April 2004 and started building it in September of that year. I finished it on December 17th, 2010 and it is on display at my office. The model scale is 1:54 witch is about 1" = 4' and I believe that I spent about 400 to 500 hours on this kit.

Thank you both, the metal work for this was a little more difficult than I thought at first. There was a lot of minor adjustment to the stern gallery decorations until I finally attached them with super glue, which is sometimes a terror to work with. I have started wearing surgical gloves when I paint or plan to work with super glue a lot, such as in the metal decorations. I will add shots of the Golden Hind and Half Moon here in the next few weeks.

Decorations abound in this kit. The Royal William is the only other kit that I have that has maybe more metal decorations then this kit.

The stern gallery. I really tried hard to paint this. It must of taken two weeks of using the very smallest of paint brushes.

It is hard to see here but i am trying to show the steering pole of this kit. It did not have a wheel but a lever that would steer the yacht.
