Bluejacket's Pirate Brig kit just arrived. This should keep me busy for several months. This is a step up from their "Ensign" level. Instructions are a lot less detailed than the Revenue Cutter, which was my previous build. Hull is about 75 percent finished. Fittings look great, and the plans are quite nice with three seperate sheets (hull, standing, and running rigging).
I haven't been on the forum for quite some time and been busy with other things so haven't been building kits in awhile but I recently started working a Mini Mamoli kit of The Black Queen. So far it's coming along well and have the hull deck planking completed along with the keel. So far it seems to be a nice fairly easy little kit...Has anyone else built this same kit or similar Mini Mamoli kits? How has your experience been?
I've finally got started on a new project. I'm working on a ship called the Mercury. She isn't actually an existing ship but a ship drawn by a pirate in another forum I'm a part of. Truth be told I'm a bit of a pirate as it was the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean that got me into this craft. This ship comes at the request of another pirate so I will do my best to do it well so I don't get keel hauled or marooned some where. I do plan on making this a dual build but for now I'm testing things out. I've done a plank on bulkhead once before with my English Cutter the Fly. It turned out to be one of my best ships so I hope the technique will do the same for these ones. so far things are coming along. If it works out well I'll start the other one. I chose this method mainly to test the draughts. It's one thing to draw a ship it's another thing altogether if your drawings actually work. Also I like the realistic look it gives me.
