Good day all,   I thought I would start this log in preperation for finishing my HMS Warspite build,    I have wanted to build a version of the Black Pearl for a while now,  but there is no Honest  company making a wood kit  and only the one decent scale plastic kit,   so  I  came up with the crazy idea of mashing my Peregrine kit into the Pearl.

 

Most inportant  Im building this for the wife as a Special request.

 

This will take some doing as the keel pieces and ribs in the peregrine kit will all need modifying  with extra pieces adding to them (I am under no illusion this will be a real trial of building skills  and my first attempt at a real scratch built ship.

I will have to firstly lengthen the keel section/s  as the Pearl was about 30 feet longer than the Pergrine  - so some additions to be added.

 

So pull up a chair in readyness for this madness  - it wont be dull.

Found this plan for Black Pearl I thought might be of help to you.

Whats a brittle 

Peanut Brittle is a HARD candy. You make it by melting the candy ingredients and pouring the peanuts in and mixing while it's still hot. Let it cool in a pan that allows it to form a sheet between 4 and 8 mm, depending on the strength of your teeth! Break it into chunks small enough to hold with a hammer or something and enjoy. Tastes kind of like extra hard peanut butter normally but you can alter the recipe and get all kinds of flavors out of it.

OC,

Im in too.  So tell me.  How do you know the dimensions of the Black Pearl?  Its ficticious but are there some kind of plans etc?  What are you using for reference?

 

 

 

Welcome aboard,

 

I have saved some of the internet diagrams of the Pearl, and also after doing some reading I understand the Pearl has a keel about 110ft long  where as my Pergrine has a keel about 80ft long.

 

What I intend to do is to convert the Pearl drawings to 1/100 scale  and draw them over the top of my Pergrine plans and build the frame from there, starting from the keel piece/s.
