  1. One more new small project. My thanks to Cap'n'Bob for support. Best Regards! Igor.
  2. I wanted to work on skills for a square rigged SIB, which I think is more of a challenge than fore & aft rigged. The story of the Jeroboam in Moby Dick was one I liked, with weird ship qurantines and doomy prophecies. I also like building fictional ships in bottles; as if i've captured part of the mystery. I found no illustration of the actual fictional Jeroboam, so I looked for Nantucket or New England Whaling ships from the first half pf the 19 the century. This painting by Salvatore Colacicco really caught my eye, and I used it as my muse!
  3. Part I: RETURN TO THE SHOP I took off about a year in between Ship in Bottle projects. I completed the restoration on my Dad's Santa Maria model, and was able to upgrade the workshop a bit. Mostly, I needed to take a break, and rebalance my free time. Over a year ago, I promised a nurse colleague named Caroline that I would make her a ship in a bottle. This was hanging over my head during my hiatus, so I was happy to return with this gift project for her. I found a smart looking schooner yacht named Caroline. She's a Malabar IV model. And I believe she is still
  4. I am choosing this as a gift for my friend, Brynn, who is from Alaska. Couldn't find too many ships named Brynn, and i kind of like what is going on with this particular ship. Apparently, a sloop-of-war is not a sloop that I think of in the civilian or recreational sense (eg a single gaff-masted cutter); rather a sloop-of-war I believe could be any unrated (ie under 20 guns?) two- or three-masted ship. The two-masted sloops-of-war were typically configured often as either main-mizzen-ketch or fore-main-snauw. This USS Alaska is a three-masted square-rigged ship, was t
  5. Good morning everyone. After few years I finally got my first ship kit - received still warm box yesterday morning . For some reason I expected something more... or bigger... or maybe just a box filled with some more stuff... but when I started to look closely at all parts included, the scale of this ship has hit me like a tiny, micro bag of potatoes. My "previous small scale modelling" seems totally irrelevant now, seems like smallest bits I have painted before are of average size of Hannah bits.... First thoughts and impressions are the most positive. Plywood is of good quality
  6. Hi everyones! I had a break in the shipbuilding for more than 3 months. Now, before I go back to my current projects, I decided to do another short mini-project for restoring of my skills. So, I begin as usual with building of the hull. Richard Lawler Schooner America Best Regards! Igor.
  7. ATLANTIC history Commissioned by New York Yacht Club member Wilson Marshall, Atlantic was launched in 1903. She was designed by William Gardner, one of America's foremost designers of large yachts. From the moment Atlantic went to sea, it was clear that she was an exceptionally fast and beautiful schooner. When a yacht in 1903 hits twenty knots during her sea trials, she is a promising yacht, but even then nobody could imagine two years later this yacht would set a record that would stand unmatched for almost a century. Nevertheless, whilst Wilson Marsh
  8. Hi to all! One more of my small and short projects. You can read the story of this boat HERE So, first, I made the basis of the boat's hull.
  9. I hope I am in the right department here. If I am moved by administration please advise me and my apologies in advance. I have dabbled with SIB for some time. I make one every ten years on average. This is supposed to be HMS Beagle. I do not work from drawings. ( should do ) All is eyesighted and let's say...artists impression? I have seen some of the most exquisite models built by guys on this forum which leave me very humbled. They are just brilliant with all their tiny detail. I love ships but am a bit of a bluffer. I put in what I think l
  10. Preussen Clipper - Ship in Bottle - 1:857 scale Background For about six or seven years I have wanted to get into modelling ships in bottles. The last few years I have been tied up with miniature wargaming, editing a Naval Wargaming journal, and writing for another journal. There is a season for everything in life and the latter chapter needed to end. For the last 7 months I conducted extensive research into the hobby and read quit a few books on modelling ships, reviewed a few books in my current library, and read articles on the Internet. Books review
  11. Hey, everybody! More than a year ago I started another project. Today it is almost finished, but I will tell you more about the construction process. Best Regards! Igor.
  12. I started this build on www.bottledshipbuilder.com. It fits with the mission of that site but the idea of this build is one I've had for a long time and it began with MSW members in mind so I thought I'd bring it over. To give a little history and the idea of what this build is, it started with a pet peave of mine. Those that have seen me on the forum have probably seen that I have been critical of ship in bottle kit's out there. I have seen a lot of MSW members and members of my local club take interest in ships in bottles then try a kit and end up never wanting to build ships in bottles
  13. Hello All, After the last SIB built wihtout any running lines, I really began to miss the the hinges and the rigging. This next build will be a Bat Mitzva gift for my niece Lila (twin to Max - he of the FORTNITE Pirate Ship), and will the last in this particular series of gifts! I found a gulet called the Princess Lila, a luxury yacht, available for charter in Turkey and Croatia. A gulet is a traditional design of a two-masted or three-masted wooden sailing vessel from the southwestern coast of Turkey. I believe that this is a ketch.
  14. Starting a new build The Golden Swan based om the 1588 English Galleon as pictured in Wolfram Zu Mondfeld book "Historic Ship Models" The hull is carved from sourwood. Usually I use Holly but wanted to try a different wood. The deck will be spit from the hull so the ship will be in two pieces so it can be placed in the bottle when done. I am building in between sessions with my Cutty Sark that I am also building.
  15. I needed a few weeks to get clean from my addiction to build logs for MSW. But now its time to feed the monkey on my back.. I'm going to make another gift - this time for my nephew Max, also for his Bar Mitzvah. Like many boys his age, Fortnite is a way of life. (If any of you dont know what Fortnite is, then I would surmise that you probably dont have a 9-19 year old human boy in your your life's orbit.) I am choosing the Fortnite Pirate Ship for him. This Ship is rather boxy, with lots of straight lines, and basically no rigging except for shrouds ratl
  16. Hello to all! Two weeks ago I started another small project in a bottle. This time it is a model of the pilot cutter Jolie Brise. This boat I like for a long time and now, finally, I "matured" for its construction. More or less suitable drawings of this boat, I never found. Found only the theoretical drawing of the hull and the general scheme of the sails. Also I found in the network a number of photos. Well, and a suitable bottle was found. A little of the history about Jolie Brise - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolie_Brise
  17. The plans for building this boat are in two issues of "Scale Wood-Craft", Spring and Summer 1986.(1a) Bottle and preparation I chose a bottle that is rectangular because I wanted a flat bottom and not much height. I am not going to add a putty "sea" for this ship. The bottle is 750ml, with "Holland Liquor Bottle" on the end. The bottle is 1 1/4" high and end to end 9" long. The opening is 7/8". The one in the plan is ¾". I cut the threaded part of the bottle at the end off because it's ugly and without the threads it looks like an old bottle. In some cases cutting it off al
  18. So, I was about to spend a couple hours launching the USS Alaska, when Wifey reminded me that I promised to make my nephew a SIB for his Bar Mitzvah Birthday - arriving in 8 days. I had been keeping my eye on some pirate ships, and decided to go with the fabled Flying Dutchman. I love the the sterncastle, and the ridiculous, ghoulish bow. I had to get crackin'. I chose a classic whickey bottle. But with a 1.65cm aperture, getting the ship in will be 'toight! Hull blank, then sanded and cut down. Unfortunately, due to the bottle's
  19. This will be my first Build Log, and 6th scratch ship in a bottle. This will be a present for a friend named Annie. She will appreciate the obvious choice of ship name. One of the best things about building scratch ships in bottles, is that you can choose pretty much any ship, based upon the occasion, recipient, bottle shape, or whatever your mood may be. I like choosing less well known ships, perhaps from obscure sources or stories or tales. I was happy to find a perky little schooner named Annie from New York, complete with a fine little backstory. I fo
  20. Hi to all! So, one more of my projects here ... But at first, we come back at some time ago. Several years ago I built a boat in the 72-m-wide while staying on vacation. By the way, it is very convenient - you have the small kit, minimum of tools and you not lose your time on vacation. This boat was on the shelf of my bookcase since. About a year ago I had got the empty bottle of Japanese whiskey with a fairly wide neck (25 mm). And this boat could be held a the throat of this bottle . But nothing were occurred to anything but banal theme: rearmament boat spars
  21. It's about time I start a log on this one since it's moving right a long. This build is another commission for a pirate rein-actor. The story of his crew is that they found the ship beached and got it back to sea worthy and made it their own pirate vessel. Basically he told me he wanted a sixth rate 20 gun frigate from around 1710. He also sent me a few photos of what he would like the ship to look like.
  22. Hi All A number of years ago, I bought the first copy of a part works magazine on building a 1/96 HMS Victory. The reasons were, it was only £1.99 (starter price) and it had some nice colour pictures for reference, some nice pieces of thin plywood (always hard to find in the UK) to be used as bulkheads. It also had a gun kit comprising barrel, carriage (in 3 pieces), trucks, capsquares, a length of brass rod for axles and some small brass nails to hold the capsquares on with. This kit has been sculling around in the bottom of my toolbox for a while now, so I thought I’d have a bash at a b
  23. Well I'm starting a new build log. I know I have a Syren I haven't touched, and a Satisfaction that needs a complete redo. Well they're going to have to wait. I've come to a couple conclusions recently that have lead me to decide on the build and the method for the build. Point one my time is limited. I got a lot of life going on so I've decided it's about time I build a ship for myself. I've always had an interest for the QAR and that interest was sparked again by this guy Queen Anne's Revenge by Shipmodel. If you haven't seen his log check it out Dan's doing some great work. In any c
  24. This is my first foray into scratch building, so I thought I would start with something small yet recognizable. This bottle Bluenose II is actually going to be a gift for a friend that hails from the East Coast of Canada and calls Halifax home, although he has been all over the better part of this vast country. I would like to start with a little bit of history. The original Bluenose was constructed in Lunenburg, NS in 1921 as a fishing schooner. She spent only a year of her short life on the Grand Banks off Newfoundland fishing for Cod, and then went into racing other schooners of
