Black PrinceDuring 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. For this matter, the government issued the permission to arm privateer ships. At the time of the Revolutionary War, Benjamin Franklin was ambassador to France. He allowed to buy two French-built corsairs through an important ship broker. Then Franklin sent them to the U.S. for modifications by a shipwright who had a talent for coaxing greater speed out of ships. These corsairs were painted black so as to be nearly invisible at night. They were named Black Prince and Black Princess. The crew were Portuguese seaman 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. Then they were captured in a hunt on the high seas and burned by the British somewhere in the Mediterranean.

Flying CloudThe clipper first appeared in the United States around 1820. It is the last stage in the evolution of the sailing ship and it satisfies the demand of the American merchant class, who has realized that the future of trade is on the sea. The American builders create quite a new ship, without imitating schemes and models of the old continent and they obtain immediately such result world shipyards techniques. Flying Cloud, the masterpiece of builder Donald McKay, was built at East Boston ins as to influence the 1851. She acquired a high reputation during the "Gold Rush" in California, making the passage from New York to San Francisco in the record time of 88 days, 22.5 hours, never equaled so far.

Golden HindThe Golden Hind took its name from the golden figure appearing on the coat-of-arms of Lord C.C. Hatton’s family, who financed Sir Francis Drake’s circumnavigation of the globe. On the 13th of December 1577 Sir Francis Drake, on board the galleon Golden Hind, together with another four ships. Set out on the most famous voyage of English naval history. After crossing with difficulty the Magellan Straits, owing to the dreadful storms in which two of the ships were wrecked, he moored into the port of Valparaiso. Afterwards he followed the coasts of Chile and Peru plundering Spanish ships and ports and catching an enormous loot. He then went up as far as California, probably trying to discover the so long searched North-West passage. He continued his voyage in the direction of the Moluccas and Java, doubled the Cape of Good Hope and returned to England after three years, completing his voyage around the world.

HMS BeagleH.M.S. Beagle was built around 1817. Class: barque. Length: approx. 28 m. Equipped: 8 guns (before the transformation). Used at first as coasting vessel, it was subsequently equipped for scientific observation which led it across the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans to the most distant lands. A mizzen-mast was added, so that the ship could be more easily steered along the coral-reefs of the Pacific islands, thus transforming Beagle in a barque. Because of the peaceful aims of the expeditions the guns were removed. 27th December 1831: Beagle sailed from Plymouth, England for a long exploration voyage with one of the most famous scientist on board, Charles Darwin who, through various experiences and acute observations gathered during the voyage elaborated his famous theory of evolution.

Roter Lowe
The galleon Roter Löwe was built in the Netherlands in the 1597 and was bought in 1601 by the Council of Königsberg on account of the Elector of Brandenburg. It was in service as a vedette-boat n Pillau from 1602 to 1605 under captain Peter Hintze’s command. The sizes of the Roter Löwe are unknown, however, on the ground of the tonnage of 240tons and the construction methods at that time, it was possible to reconstruct a ship having a length of 28 metres from prow to stern and a width of about 8 metres. Equipment: 12 iron guns on the lower deck - 4 guns to launch stone balls on the deck and 2 other for the retreat - 4 culverins. Crew: estimated at 30 hands.

HalifaxBorn as a packet-boat, Halifax was purchased in 1768 by the Royal Navy and transformed at Portsmouth England into a typical colonial schooner of the time. These alterations included raising the cabin platform to obtain more storage space below, elevating the bulwarks with openings for the 6 guns and building a new railing with 6 culverins. The outer changes made to the hull as well as to the masting and rigging deeply altered the original aspect. The sources concerning the life of this ship are extremely contradictory. She sailed prevailingly along the American coasts in a rather complex period of the history of this country

Caracca AtlanticaThree-masted carrack. Length of the hull: approx. 35 m. Height from the top of the mast to the keel: approx. 30 m. The prints of that name and the documents found in the historical archives of the naval museum of Barcelona allowed the reconstruction of the Ship’s plans, which takes its stand between the medieval merchant ship and the galleon, classifiable for its particular structures of the forecastle and quarterdeck among the carracks. Probably around 1519 in took part in an important expedition, which led Fernando Cortez to conquer Mexico. The outer galleries, one of which is a balcony, the apartments under the small quarterdeck, the superstructures of the decks providing the installation of awnings for protection against the sun, clearly indicate that they were employed for the transport of passengers of high class. Characteristics of this ship are the escutcheons at prow, painted with bright colors and having merely a decoration function.

L' OrenoqueL'Orenoque was one of the first French frigates with mixed propulsion, sail-steam, built in 1848. She displaced 2,568 tons. Although she was provided with a mechanical propulsion advanced in concept, she kept the typical masting of the frigates of that time. Scarcely armed, she was mainly used to transport troops. The richness of the superstructures, reproduced with refined performance and faithful scale, the characteristic paddle-wheels and the classic masting give the model a new and original look.

USS ConstitutionUSS Constitution, known as "Old Ironsides," is a wooden-hulled, three-masted frigate of the United States Navy. Named after the United States Constitution, she is the oldest commissioned ship afloat in the world and is still in service in the US Navy (while HMS Victory is the oldest commissioned ship in the world by three decades, she is permanently drydocked). The Constitution was one of the six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794. Joshua Humphreys designed them to be the Navy's capital ships and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed than the standard run of frigates from the period.

An ideal choice for beginners! Model has plenty of detail without many of the complexities of scale ship modeling. Hull sections are pre-formed poplar plywood, ready for planking. Fittings include walnut deadeyes, blocks, gun carriages and barrels; burnished metal cannon and lots of copper and brass hardware.

Yacht MaryWhen Charles Stuart, the future king of England visited the Netherlands, in 1660, he was impressed with the small, quick pleasure boats the Dutch called "yachts". The Dutch presented him with such a vessel, and he brought the sport of yachting home to England. Charles II loved yachts, and during his reign he owned nearly thirty of them. He named his first yacht after his sister Mary, and the rest after his wives and mistresses.

Mamoli's Yacht Mary is double-planked in beech and walnut. Tanganyka and mahogany is used for trim and deck furniture. Keel, frames, decking and display stand are pre-cut. Ready to use fittings are made of hardwood, brass and bronzed metal. The lavish ornamentation supplied with the kit is usually reserved for much larger models. Hull decorations and transom are bronzed metal, and eight cannon mounted on walnut carriages grace her decks. Nine sheets of plans with step-by-step instructions make for easy building.

Royal LewisThe Royal Louis was a 3-deck vessel with 120 guns. Her captain was a Squadron Admiral. She was one of the most powerful first-rank vessels belonging to the French Royal Navy at that time. Our model represents the Royal Louis according to the plans of 1779, when she was Admiral-Ship of the Blue and White Squadron, being part of the American Squadron, also called Earl d' Estaing's.

This Mamoli kit is particularly rich in accessories and decorations. Who ever knows how complex are the deck's superstructures of this ship, can easily understand the problems we had to solve in order not to alter the real image. The several molten decorations of the transom are made precious by veneer insertions of precious wood. Thanks to the particular structure of the ship, the reproduction accuracy is such that, through a window of the stern balconies, it is possible to catch a glimpse of the complete inside decks' dressing.

HMS VictoryThe first rank vessel H.M.S. Victory, with 104 guns, was launched at Chatham in 1765. It was in service for a long time under the command of famous admirals. Its name was indissolubly tied to Nelson’s in the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. It is the boast of the of the English Navy and is still preserved at Portsmouth. The choice of the scale 1:90 in the reconstruction of such an important model offers the twofold advantage to adopt planning solutions open even to the less experienced modeler and to construct without excessive difficulties a compact model. Large use has been made of precious wood molded according to the form requested by the original. The molten metal port-holes allow a perfect execution of the openings for the guns and it is not necessary to bore the planking. No plastic or plastic wood parts are used. The structure of the quarter-deck is all wood and on it are applied various molten metal decorations.

The sheathing of the bottom of the hull with about 3.000 plates reflects the constructive schemes of the original and is of great realistic effect. The observance of the scale is so scrupulous that the quantity of the strips of the planking is the same as the quantity of the boards on the original.

RattlesnakeThe Revolutionary War privateer Rattlesnake was designed in 1779-80 by John Peck, a Boston naval architect. The original Rattlesnake was built in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and in style resembled a miniature frigate, which had a separate quarter deck and forecastle. These features are rather unusual for a privateer. She carried up to 20 guns (probably six and nine pounders), and had a usual complement of 85 men. The original Rattlesnake was commissioned by the Continental Congress of the fledgling United States and helped to win the Revolutionary War by bringing in over $2,000,000 in captured British ships. Privateer action in the North Florida area was intense as Georgia was held by the American Patriots and Florida was held by the British. Little is known of her career except that it was brief. Late in 1781, she was captured by the British frigate Assurance (44 guns) and taken into the Royal Navy as the Commorant (14 guns). Sometime around 1784 it was renamed Rattlesnake after the British discovered they already had a ship named Commorant and soon afterwards was sold out of the British Navy. Little is known as to her disposition from here except that she may have ended up as the French ship Le Tonnant as her lines were exactly the same as Rattlesnakes'. The vessel was unusually fast, and her hull lines were recorded by the British Admiralty after her capture and have come down to us today.

HMS EndeavourThe H.M.S. Endeavour was launched in 1765. She was prepared three years later for a voyage under the command of Captain James Cook. Australia was than discovered and Tahiti and numerous islands sighted. She returned to England in 1771 bringing back all kinds of animals and vegetables unknown in Europe. Captain Cook's 1768-1771 voyage in HMS Endeavour is considered to be of historical importance because she contributed a great wealth of Navigation, Seamanship, Exploration, and Geography to the world's knowledge. During this voyage Captain Cook was the first captain to calculate longitudinal position with greater accuracy using a mathematical formula developed in the 1760s. Cook is also the first to reduce scurvy among his crew, a serious and sometimes fatal result of dietary deficiency on long voyages. Before making history in the service of the British Navy the HMS Endeavour, under the name Earl of Pembroke was a merchant vessel carrying coal from England to Scandinavia. Before setting off in 1768 the HMS Endeavour was drastically refitted, relining her hull, replacing her masts and adding armaments. More recently there is speculation that the HMS Endeavour met her end off the coast of Rhode Island in 1778. The HMS Endeavour was renamed to Lord Sandwich and returned to merchant service transporting coal after her historic voyage in the South Pacific. A ship named Lord Sandwich was intentionally sunk in Newport Harbor in 1778.

AmericaThe schooner America was designed by George Steers and built in William Brown’s shipyard in 1851. Its name is still the most important and celebrated in the history of world yachting. America under Dick Brown’s command, pilot from New York, set out for England in June 1851 to take part in the regatta which was to be held on the 22nd of August around the isle of Wight, without any compensation for difference in tonnage or rigging. The prize offered was a 100 guinea cup. America carried off an overwhelming victory over the English squadron. When it appeared, America presented remarkable novelties in the form of the hull, above all where the water lines and main section were concerned, the latter pulled back in comparison with the hulls of that time. Besides that it had a low draught, refined lines, a light displacement and a new cut of sails, remarkably thinner and made of a cotton fabric.

The 100 guinea cup, become afterwards “America’s Cup”, still gives its name to the most important regatta in the world.

Mamoli's Yacht America kit sports pre-cut plywood keel and frames, and pre-shaped mahogany deck. Her hull is planked twice-once in limewood for strength, and again in walnut for a beautiful finish. All fittings are ready to use. Walnut deadeyes and blocks, brass nail, eyelets, rings and chain, and cast metal anchors are only a few of the numerous fittings supplied. Bow ornaments are cast in gilded metal. Canvas sail material and wooden display cradle are also included. Ten sheets of plans are clearly drawn, instructions are easy to follow.

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