The outer changes made to the hull as well as to masting and rigging altered deeply the original aspect. The sources concerning the life of this ship are extremely contradictory.

The ship set out Spit head in December 1787, final destination Tahiti. On the return voyage, owing to the strict discipline imposed by the captain, which clashed with the idle stay in Tahiti, a certain discontent began to spread through the crew and it soon turned into a mutiny. Christian Fletcher, the boatswain, took command of the ship and forced Bligh to embark on a life-boat with 18 still faithful men. After a dangerous navigation for more than 4000 miles, Bligh reached the isle of Timor and afterwards England. The Bounty went back to Tahiti where part of the crew landed. Then it sailed for the Pitcairn Isle where Fletcher and the remaining men settled. Only 20 years later the group landed in Tahiti was captured and tried by the English Court-martial. Only three seamen where condemned, while the others were acquitted.

HUNTER

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 a cutter built towards 1797. It is equipped with 12 guns and several culverins.

JENNY

JennyThe Star was created in 1911 from lines drawn by William Gardner. Among monotype ships this one had appropriate measurements and ideal proportions. The most famous of helmsmen took a liking to the yacht and thus made it popular all over the world. Over 9000 of this craft have been built in the past 90 years. It is still Olympic class. Every sea and lake port vaunts the mooring of a Star, with its unmistakable lengthening line became at last familiar. Also the MAMOLI's owners have decided to realize this model, because when young they had this extraordinary ship . They attended some regattas on beautiful water of Como’s Lake. As other regatta models of our assortment, details are made with extreme meticulousness. The hull is in wooden . The sail plan and the rigging respect really a Star the thirty years. As the color of hull, strictly bright and the deck with strips at sight. The rigging , then, was respected in his whole, from shrouds in metal plait to cotton sheets and halyard, to the metal connection on the mast and so on. We think that the sail supporters can be completely satisfied about re-edition in scale of this "ageless and marvelous" Star.

LE COUREUR

Le CoureurThe lugger was a kind of ship used by the French pirates of the Revolution and of the Empire. It is a type of ship equipped as a "bragozzo", with 3 masts, a very long bowsprit, several jibs, topsails and some foretopsails. It was built by the Denys de Dunkerque and launched in 1776. The career of this ship was short because it was captured by the English on 17th June 1778 during a battle, reminded famous, between the frigate La Belle Poule and the frigate Arethusa. After two hours battle and a vain attempt of boarding, shot a dozen times at the water line, with 3 men dead and 7 mortally wounded, it surrenders. The destiny of the ship after it was captured by the English is badly known. Was it taken back by the French in 1782 as stated by some authors? Was it captured by the Americans off Terranova in 1780?

During the same year the Lexington was captured by the British frigate Pearl. The crew recaptured the boat again in a daring action and returned it to Baltimore. During the following year the Lexington sailed to France and, together with other ships, took part in various battles in the Bay of Biscay, the English channel and the Irish coast. A number of English ships were captured. On September 20th, 1777 on its return trip from France the Lexington was captured by the English cutter Alert. After a fight of more than three hours the Lexington ran out of ammunition and had to surrender. Thus at least the lives of the crew, already decimated by enemy fire, were saved.

NAVE SCOULA

Nave ScoulaIn 1925, the Regia Marina ordered two school ships to be built following a design by Lieutenant Colonel Francesco Rotundi of the Italian Navy Engineering Corps, inspired by the style of large late 18th century 74-cannon ships of the line. The first of these two ships, the Cristoforo Colombo, was put into service in 1928 and was used by the Italian Navy until 1943. After World War II, this ship was handed over to the USSR as part of the war reparations and was shortly afterwards decommissioned.

The second ship of the design was the Amerigo Vespucci. The ship was built in 1930 at the (formerly Royal) Naval Shipyard of Castellammare di Stabia (Naples). She was launched on February 22, 1931, and was put into service in July of that year.

The vessel is a full rigged three masted steel hull 82.4 m long, with an overall length of 101 m (331 ft) including the bowsprit and a maximum width of 15.5 m (51 ft). She has a draught of about 7 metres (23 ft) and a displacement at full load of 4146 tons. Under auxiliary engine power, the Amerigo Vespucci reaches a top speed of 10 knots and has an autonomy of 5450 nm (at 6.5 knots). The three steel masts are 50, 54, and 43 metres high, respectively, and carry sails that total 2824 m2 (30400 ft2) In total, the Amerigo Vespucci has 26 sails - square sails, staysails, and jibs: all are traditional canvas sails. The rig, some 30 km of rope, entirely uses traditional hemp ropes, too. Only the mooring lines are synthetic in order to comply with port regulations. Currently, she is the only existing three decked square rigger.

NEWPORT

NewportAt the beginning of the 19th century in America numerous vessels with racy lines have been built. They were very fast and easy to head: the famous clippers of Baltimore.

RATTLE SNAKE

Rattle SnakeThe privateer ship Rattlesnake was built at Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1779 or 1780, allegedly to designs by John Peck. At various times it carried from 14 to 20 guns and its complement consisted of 85 men. It was captured off the American coasts in 1781 by the British 44-gun ship Assurance. It was taken to England, where it was renamed Cormorant and its lines were drawn. With its reduced dead rise and its very sharp fore lines the Rattlesnake must have been very fast. It had a detached forecastle and quarterdeck, linked by removable gangways, unshipped during the battles.

ROTER LOWE

Roter LoweThe galleon Roter Lowe 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 Lowe are unknown, however, on the ground of the tonnage of 240 tons 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.

ROYAL LOUIS

Royal LouisThe Royal Louis was a 3-deck vessel with 120 guns. Its captain was a Squadron Admiral. It was one of the most powerful first-rank vessels belonging to the French Royal Navy at the time. Our model represents the Royal Louis according to the plans of 1779, when it was admiral-ship of the blue and white Squadron, being part of the American Squadron, also called Earl Estaing's. Our kit is particularly rich in accessories and decorations. Whoever 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 deck's dressing.

SANTA MARIA

Santa MariaWhat were the ships of the great discovery of the New World like? Tradition always speaks of three caravels, a sort of swift ship with a light hull, several masts and sorts of sails. Scholars advise that, in reality, Columbus' fleet consisted of 2 caravels, Nina and Pinta, and of a "Nao", Santa Maria, a sort of boat with 3 masts, 2 square sails and a lateen one, provided with a foredeck, that makes it rather belonging to the class of the carracks. However, the small sizes of Santa Maria must not deceive: the strong construction, together with the nautical knowledge of the time and with the perception of the great sailor allowed such a great enterprise. 1492, a historical date known all over the world.

SAO. MIGUEL CARACCA

Sao. Miguel CaraccaThree-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 it 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 colours and having merely a decoration function.

USS CONSTITUTION

USS ConstitutionU.S.S. Constitution, American frigate with 54 guns, was launched on 21st of October 1797. It had bigger dimensions, sails and equipment than the contemporary ships of the same class. Its strong construction earned it’s the name of "Old Ironsides". It was protagonist of various episodes of naval battles, the most famous of which was the victory over the English frigate "Guerriere" on the 19th August 1812, during the war against Great Britain. It was afterwards transformed into a training-ship and underwent various modifications. At present, anchored in the Navy's shipyard of Boston, it is used as a naval museum.

In this model we employed the usual metal port-holes allowing a perfect copy of the openings for the guns without boring the planking. The bottom of the hull is sheathed with plates, as in the original, giving the model a highly realistic look.

It is considered the prototype of the pleasure-boats. The reconstruction of the model has been helped by a picture of Van der Velde and by archaeological remains come to light in the last years where the ship was wrecked. The model is therefore most trustworthy and is structurally identical, as far as the constructive process, is concerned, in comparison with the other bigger models of ours. It is particularly rich of precious, molten decorations for which exclusive pieces made by a renowned sculptor have been used.
