Well that certainly was a bit of a shock. I will not try to rebuild everything back to the begining but here is a brief overview of from there to here. This pilot cutter is based on some plans that were published by MAP (Model and Allied Press) back in the early 70's and those plans were actually based on the fishing smack CK482. Those of you who have seen the build in the past will already be familiar with what I have done so far. The model is LOD 63 inches LOA 84 inches Beam 18 inches Draft 10 1/2 inches My intention is to sa
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
I thought that a challenge to build a small model at 1:500 scale similar to the ships in bottles might make a satisfying change from working in 1:8 scale the hull is carved from a small piece of the English Boxwood I decided to use the larger part of the block as a holding jig so I carefully fretted out the profile and plan with a jewelers saw, by not completing the cuts I was able to hold it easily until the end. The hull blank was reatached to the cut along the deck line saw cut with a little acc glue.
