The firsts step was to cut out the bulkheads and the false keel and glue the false keel together

Thanks Graham

The kit is pretty good but I may scratch build gun carriages as they are metal and also few other parts.

Mamoli was burnt down a year or two ago but Daniel Dusek has bought the rights and wish him well.

Cheers

So with him buying the rights, will he be replacing parts and making their rigging line? What is the name of the company he will be selling them under. I like his 0.4 mm line and would like to get some more.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Gary

I think you should go to Dusek and ask the question about the Mamoli rigging line.

There is a contact page on there website with an email address

http://www.dusekshipkits.com/home

Also google mamoli rigging line

Try this website http://www.historicships.com/Rigging/Rigging%20Menu.htm

I hope this will help. I wish you luck. I only found out about this at the end of May

Cheers

Thanks Seadog for visiting my build log and no doubt will present some problems along the wasy

The next step was to build a keel clamp with bow and stern posts to hold the Connie square. I think I can improve on the keel clamp on my next build by using 2020 aluminium extrusion with t Slots on the board and then started to dry fit the bulkheads. I did have problems with the bow with a warp to one side that I had sorted out.

Hi Seadog

The length is 973 mm and height is 667 mm.

I hope it is not to large as I would love to see another Mamoli USS Constitution build log done. :D

I know of one partial build log done.

When I was looking at buying the kit, one of my friends said to get something good that you can really get your teeth into.

I got it off Model Expo eBay website at auction for under half the normal price and landed in Australia.

Cheers
Geoff

.I proceeded with the dry fitting of the false keel. The cut outs in the false keel was about 0.5 mm wither than the thickness of the bulkheads, so I was advised to put a packer in and then dry fitted the bulkheads again and measured the height of the bulkhead with a waterline marker to make sure that the port side matched the starboard side.

After dry fitting the bulkheads it was time to glue them in. I was not happy with one of the bulkhead alignments so I got out the Isocol and softened the PVA glue and pulled it out, cleaned it up and refitted the bulkhead and continued on. The use of aluminium angle helped square the bulkheads to the false keel. I have always like to show how I go about making pieces just in case there is a better way of doing thing. This will help me and maybe other builders.
