  1. 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 th
  2. Hello to all. First time for me / no experience at all I started a project using some plans found at (link removed by admin because of copyright violations). I ve chossen the Black Pearl so after I downloaded the plans with the help of youtube I manage to print them at the corect scale. The next step was to search for as much info I can get, downloaded lot of pictures with the ship from the movie some from kits allready finished viewed some videos. a lot of measurements details I manage to get them from real pictures of the ship using my imagination. Sure I m not the only one t
  3. Hey guys the name is greg I'm from goldcoast Australia and this is the first ever build I've done which is the black pearl I've already have issues 1-3 and will be getting issues 4-7 this week I know that people on different sites don't agree with these type of partworks but the way I see it is that I get distracted very easily and with the 120 spread over 120 weeks I should be able to complete this I've been watching YouTube and have Been following Callum's build (06callum06) which has been very helpful so if he sees this thanks mate. I'll be starting another build probably next week which is
  4. I've been trolling ship-building sites for years, checking out all of your amazing work in wood and plastic and finally decided to break the seal and get to building one of my own! I am a big fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean series and as far as licensed copies go, the Zvezda "Black Swan" is the closest representation of the Black Pearl and from reviews I have read; it is a really well put together kit. I have tons of modeling and painting experience but this will be the first ship I have ever built so I am excited to put my skills to the task! I received the package in the mail early
  5. about 2 months I subscribed to the Build the black Pearl from Hachette as it was just released in Australia. it was my attempt to get back into building after a long time of no activity, as I figured there wouldn't be much work to do each week. each delivery contains 4 issues , but I will stick to doing one a week. for about a month I was working on another project (a bf gift for my wife) but now I am catching up again. I ll be doing a post with some pictures every week )
  6. Since my first attempt at making the Black Pearl in a bottle failed I decided to restart and this time I am making it smaller and will be making the chase scene between the Pearl and the Interceptor. I might have the Interceptor in the process of clubhauling as well as having miscellaneous barrels and crates floating in the water behind the Interceptor from when they were lightening the load. Lextin.
  7. Hi. This is a fun build to get my lad introduced into ship modeling. The model is info :- Length 80 cm , Height 69.5 cm , Width 31.5 cm. In the Model guide it states :- "This large model is easy to assemble by following the step by step instructions given with each issue, The instructions are suitable for younger model makers and they do not require any experience of model making. Simply follow the clear guide to complete this magnificent pirate ship." The parts in issue one are two sheets go fibre board (MDF) 6mm and 4mm thick.plus a flag and string. The packaging was very good. The
  8. Hello everyone here is my build log of the Black Pearl by Hatchettepartworks it is a weekly issue, I will be receiving four issues every four weeks. this is the first part from issue number one. Regards steve-h
  9. I got a call from a relative who wants me to make them a ship in a bottle, they were not specific on what they wanted they just said a pirate ship. I thought abought it and realized that real pirate ships are not that recognizable as "pirate ships" so I decided on the Black Pearl from Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean. I found some plans on the web and immediately started on the model. The hull is made in three pieces from balsa, the upper works are made in four pieces also balsa, the decks are made from thin plywood and the mast are bamboo skewers.
  10. I was at a hobby shop for the Rocky Mountain Shipwrights show. It was a Wednesday night so it was pretty slow. I noticed they had some of these Metal Earth models so I decided to try it out. I finished it in the three hours that I was there. It seems there is some interest in this forum for these ships so I took a lot of pictures to do a build log. I want to point out that this ship looks an awful lot like the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl. It is not Disney trade marked. I wondered about that at first and found the answer on the back of the package. It read's, "There
