  1. Hi all this is my build of the ghost ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean the Flying Dutchman a bit of a fantasy build but looking forward to going a bit freestyle. I have just started cutting out the bulkheads with my new coping saw so will post some pics tomorrow. More to come Martyn
  2. Hi everyone! This is my next build after finishing The Mayflower, which you can see in the Gallery here. I started this build already a while ago, back in 2012. Life circumstances caused me to give it a break in an early stage. However, with my life in order (more or less) and no other project going on (I put my Renommee idea on hold for now and next in line is then anyway the Hollandsee Zweedekker). The ship is the replica of a Spanish treasure galleon, ´The Neptune´ for the 1984 movie "Pirates" by Roman Polanski. This built is an excursion int
  3. Good day all, I thought I would start this log in preperation for finishing my HMS Warspite build, I have wanted to build a version of the Black Pearl for a while now, but there is no Honest company making a wood kit and only the one decent scale plastic kit, so I came up with the crazy idea of mashing my Peregrine kit into the Pearl. Most inportant Im building this for the wife as a Special request. This will take some doing as the keel pieces and ribs in the peregrine kit will all need modifying with extra pieces adding to them (I am under no illusion th
  4. Hello all, After a very helpful discussion with several of you here and a very enlightening set of resources provided by @Thanasis, I feel ready to tackle this build that has been haunting me a few years now. It all begins with this image: It's found in a Greek museum of engravings (Benaki museum) and according to it's inscription it depicts a galliot from Psara. It is engraved by Lykourgos Kogevinas, a famous Greek engraver in 1938, but is based on a painting by a Lt E. W. Churchill made in 1827. We can assume the Lt served in the British Royal Navy a
  5. Day three of my build. I'm trying to decide how to hold down the false deck while the glue sets. I have nails ordered but no delivery date as of yet. I will appreciate any tips.
  6. Hi. Welcome to the Chinese Pirate Junk build. This is based on the Amati model and lines were taken from there plans.(with lots of modifications.) The plans were modified with Adobe Illustrator CS2 which is my chosen software. Extra bulkheads were added and some bulkheads were changed to match the lines that I wanted. Junk Antony.pdf My drawings converted into PDF. The 6mm and 3mm plywood used to the decks and bulkheads were cut by Laser cutting service http://www.pbmodelmaking.co.uk/laser-cutting-service/4588356832 The cost off the Laser cutting plywood and
  7. Hello to all. First time for me / no experience at all I started a project using some plans found at (link removed by admin because of copyright violations). I ve chossen the Black Pearl so after I downloaded the plans with the help of youtube I manage to print them at the corect scale. The next step was to search for as much info I can get, downloaded lot of pictures with the ship from the movie some from kits allready finished viewed some videos. a lot of measurements details I manage to get them from real pictures of the ship using my imagination. Sure I m not the only one t
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Hello to all - Those of you who followed my building of the Swan 42 racing yacht may experience some temporal whiplash as the Wayback Machine moves the shipyard some 300 years into the past. Even though the scale will be about the same, the materials, methods, and style will have little or nothing in common with the last project. We leave the clean lines and millimeter accuracy of a rich man's toy for the rough outlines and incomplete draughts of a pre-Colonial pirate ship. Queen Anne's Revenge was the flagship of the notorious pirate Edward Thatch (incorrectly calle
  12. 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).
  13. Starting my first log! This is my second POH ship and was looking to start afresh in my ship modeling seeing as my last model didn't survive my most recent move and I need a nifty new mantle decoration. Adventure is a "pirate" schooner kit offered by Amati. The last ship I completed was also an Amati in 2014 and I now recall frustrations from the vague details in the instructions provided. I rushed through that model, had plenty of very, very visible mistakes and only admired the finished product as it was my first. Luckily I found another build log here for Adventure that
  14. 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
  15. For my first build, I thought I would start with a plastic kit and see how it goes from here. After a couple trips to my local hobby shop I purchased an 896-piece model called Pirate Ship. 896 parts may seem a bit ambitious, but I wanted a fair amount of detail. Perhaps a bit of back-story is in order. My basement's decor is loosely based on the period of Age of Sails. It started with my wife's and I love of the sea, but being landlocked, we thought we'd bring a small window of the sea into the home. A 180-gallon salt-water aquarium was set-up in the basement and we were well on our way. F
  16. So crazy thing happened at work a week or so ago. We had a secret Santa sort of thing at work and one of my coworkers went well out of there way to find a ship in bottle kit. They went to just about every hobby store in Denver and found this one which was under the $20 limit set by the company for this activity. I'm actually highly surprised they found one at all in an actual store. I've only ever seen them online. After I got it they told me they want to see it when I'm done. I accepted politely and told them I would, inside I was thinking haven't you seen the ten ships in bottle
  17. Hey guys the name is greg I'm from goldcoast Australia and this is the first ever build I've done which is the black pearl I've already have issues 1-3 and will be getting issues 4-7 this week I know that people on different sites don't agree with these type of partworks but the way I see it is that I get distracted very easily and with the 120 spread over 120 weeks I should be able to complete this I've been watching YouTube and have Been following Callum's build (06callum06) which has been very helpful so if he sees this thanks mate. I'll be starting another build probably next week which is
  18. I've been trolling ship-building sites for years, checking out all of your amazing work in wood and plastic and finally decided to break the seal and get to building one of my own! I am a big fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean series and as far as licensed copies go, the Zvezda "Black Swan" is the closest representation of the Black Pearl and from reviews I have read; it is a really well put together kit. I have tons of modeling and painting experience but this will be the first ship I have ever built so I am excited to put my skills to the task! I received the package in the mail early
  19. about 2 months I subscribed to the Build the black Pearl from Hachette as it was just released in Australia. it was my attempt to get back into building after a long time of no activity, as I figured there wouldn't be much work to do each week. each delivery contains 4 issues , but I will stick to doing one a week. for about a month I was working on another project (a bf gift for my wife) but now I am catching up again. I ll be doing a post with some pictures every week )
  20. Hi. This is a fun build to get my lad introduced into ship modeling. The model is info :- Length 80 cm , Height 69.5 cm , Width 31.5 cm.

Simply follow the clear guide to complete this magnificent pirate ship." The parts in issue one are two sheets go fibre board (MDF) 6mm and 4mm thick.plus a flag and string. The packaging was very good. The
