C.Mamoli's Golden Hind

Post by CharlesEdward » Sat Apr 28, 2012 1:25 pm

Sir Frances Drake's small galley that circumnavigated the globe. This vessal was originally named Pelican. Drake renamed it the Golden Hind for this voyage and was the only vessel of his fleet of five ships that returned to England. His voyage did net his investors around 1000% return in their investment. Mostley due to his pirate activities up and down the coast of Spanish California. Its good to be a pirate!! Yarrrgh me maties.

This kit did not have as many metal decorations as my yacht Mary had but afterall this was an actually WORKING galley, not a pleasure yacht.

One more picture of the aft deck above the stern gallery. We must also include some pictures of the bow detail of this interesting kit. The silk screened printed wood pieces consisted of two full size starboard and port pieces carefully glued to the bulwarks and three of four smaller pieces used for forcastle and quarterdeck railing decorations.

Top mast details, I believe that I accidentally reversed the flags here. the flag on the main mast should be on the foremast and vice a versa.

Interesting model. The wood silk screen makes the model unique. Plastic would not look as good as your model. Nice job.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

she looks really good sir Charles.........I especially like the rigging detail. I too am slowly getting reluctant in using the plastic parts....if I absolutely need to, I will.......otherwise..... ;-)

Very nice looking!
I have a request. This looks like Mamoli's 1/53 scale Golden Hind kit. I have that kit as well. However I lost my plans. I wonder if I could borrow your plans? If you would mail them to me I could have them copied and return original. Thanks in advance.
Tim
