Phill Elston Posted March 11, 2016 Share #1 Posted March 11, 2016 Hello all, I am part way through my first ship build, an Amati Bounty in 1:60. I realise that some of the parts aren't as "authentic" as I would prefer. The gun carriages are cast in a "bronzed" white metal - I'm capable of making more authentic wooden ones and that is a plan already being progressed. The kit though, comes with only one boat, whereas Bounty carried two. Again, the supplied boat comes in a cast white metal form (albeit with wood thwarts etc.) It isn't actually one of the boats carried by Bounty but it is approximately the correct scale length for the Bounty's 20' cutter and I think I can "adapt" the bottom planking & aft seating to better represent the cutter. Looks like I may have to scratch build its mast, spars and oars though, as the supplied boat doesn't come with these. So I need (want) to find (if there is one) a kit of the ship's 23' Launch. Does anyone know if there is one out there? Thanks in advance. mtaylor, Tadeusz43 and probablynot 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
