  1. 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 sail this model here are a few pics of the build The frames are Jellutong, and the planking on the hull is Cedar. The roller reefing is custom built around a worm gear on hand. The mast is Clear Fir and the boom is Spruce. The deck is double planked the lower planks are white pine glued and treenailed into place the top planks are clear Fir the caulking is coloured Carpenters glue the top planks will also be treenailed in place. The cockpit surround is Honduras Mahogany as is the forward hatch and the cabin sides. The underside of the cockpit coaming the walls will drop into the opening 2 1/14 inches and there will be a gasket around the edge of the deck under the coaming. The cockpit will be fixed into the hull with a couple of brass machine screws then a teak floor grate will cover those. this way I can access the rudder controls and keep the water I have learned form this experience to back up everything and am now building my log in MSword and posting to the site. It is great to have the site back. Michael
  2. 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
  3. 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. The beginning carving most of the actual carving was done with the #11 blade then some files. Some .024" holes were drilled for mounting to a board and a similar hole was drilled for the rudder. The first trial assembly to get an Idea of how it will look. I think that the mast is a bit big in diameter yet and the hull still needs a bit of fairing in a couple of spots. Three quarter from the bow Still a fair ways to go but I am satisfied with the progress this evening. The brass tiller is just a placeholder it is a bit on the big side. Next the bowsprit and topmast gaff and boom. Michael
