  1. Well I am going to try 'Start a model and finish it'. I got the Lindberg 'Jolly Roger' at Hobby Lobby with a coupon for $17. I will make some changes to the kit, add details to the gun deck, improve the masts and spars, make my own sails, and decide on which color scheme use. Improvements: add birth deck under ladders add hawse holes add gun deck capstans add officers quarters add galley stove Hope to make some progress soon Ziggy
  2. Hello friends, the young lady safing my life* will have birthday in 2 1/2weeks!!! So I picked the old WaltDisney JOLLY ROGER** pirate ship out of my pile of kits. Due to the sentence as she says if she thinks about me she remembers ships... So I do remember the nearly funny film (I was allways a sceptical guy even with Walts' productions at childhood - did I have had this illness?) and the JOLLY ROGER pirate ship (very first Revell kit box I can remember - Monogram is the P-61 Black Widow - Heller is the huge SR-box) the 1/72 scale I wouldn't take too serious.
  3. Go ahead and laugh. I like pirate ships. After doing the Revell U.S.S. Constitution as my first ship, I decided to tone it down with a level 2 ship. I have to admit this one looks tough too. The pieces are so tiny. Oh well, I enjoy a challenge. I am excited to have my first build log.
  4. last Tuesday.......I was suffering from work lag. it was a nasty week.....way too many trailer brake jobs! I didn't have the urge to do anything with the wood projects. Wednesday came with not much change, and I knew I had to do something. ........something I could just throw together, without much fuss. since the Jolly rogers was a kit with many problems, I figured.....what the heck, if I have to hack it up, who cares not like I was going to do a log on it, or anything I would forego a lot of painting....no need to be fancy. a few folks here has built it and experienced
  5. ...and music of the epoque to give some acustic idea of my mood for this project to you. Okay, that's me! I am building at the Revell Peter Pan JOLLY ROGER when The dream of a Louis XIV. commode crossed my way and I am attacked by the beauty of a single golden detail: the FAUNUS. s a mythological figure a horned god of the forest, plains and fields; when he made cattle fertile he was called Inuus (there the link to DE ROODE BUL). He came to be equated in literature with the Greek god Pan. So the idea is to develope a freelance sh
  6. Hi Guys!!!! Im so Glad to Start my first Build log in MSW Well as some of you might know by now one of the several proyects i have in mind is the Jolly Roger ship also Re-named as the Chiken of the Sea, this version has been made into a model kit first produced by Disney and then by Revell with the name of "Caribbean Pirate Ship" but there are no blueprints available for this ship as far as i know and i have always been in love with how powerfull it looks I think one of the problems with this ship is that is always Taken/Mistaken for a tiny/weak/cartoony/Childish ship
  7. My plan is to make a generic model of a frigate, basically following the instructions, doing things a little different as far as paint colors go... The goal is to get a feel for building models of "tall ships" with all their rigging, to enjoy the process, and to hopefully end up with something that looks good with my other ship models... I'm pleased with how it looks so far, and I'm having fun, so I'd say I'm off to a good start. I have some resizing to do on my pictures, so it might be a while before I get them up... Edit: forgot to add - I'm already in the process of rigging this
  8. I hope I have this topic in the right place if not moderators please correct me. I figured scratch because it's a scratch project on an already built kit. I'll explain. My first ship model ever I got when I was 17. It's a Lindberg Jolly Roger plastic kit. I was used to building airplanes at that time so I built it in a similar way with just the pieces provided and some paint. At that time I didn't add rigging. It had the back stays but that was about it. As I got more into ship in bottle building I added some rigging. I guess you can say it was ship in bottle rigged since
  9. Greetings! Newbie here. After dabbling with a couple of Age of Sail models (one is still ongoing), I finally decided to do the Jolly Roger, by Lindberg (seemed a lot simpler than my Heller 74/ Le Superbe). This kit was also known as the frigate La Flore (originally) and also the Flying Dutchman. But now it’s the Jolly Roger because all square rigged vessels with cannon have to be pirate ships. Sigh… Anyway, it was/is my intention to use this kit to create a sort of generic 18th century Royal Navy frigate, but not any specific frigate from the Royal Navy of that era. Also, I am build
