Jolly Roger by SomethingIsFishy - Lindberg - PLASTIC


Recommended Posts

My plan is to make a generic model of a frigate, basically following the instructions, doing things a little different as far as paint colors go...

 

The goal is to get a feel for building models of "tall ships" with all their rigging, to enjoy the process, and to hopefully end up with something that looks good with my other ship models... I'm pleased with how it looks so far, and I'm having fun, so I'd say I'm off to a good start.

 

I have some resizing to do on my pictures, so it might be a while before I get them up...

 

Edit: forgot to add - I'm already in the process of rigging this ship, but I do have a few pics of the progress to share...

Looking good, sir.    

 

As for your question about Photobucket... the downside is that if there's a network problem, if you close your account, or Photobucket gets bought (it does happen), then the photos in your log will be lost.   The safest way is to upload them here.  It's not hard to do and instructions are here:  http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/540-how-to-add-pictures-in-your-posts-and-pms/

Good point, scrolling thru pages of "photo not found" is not very interesting...

 

Meanwhile back at the docks... Sails are up next according to the instructions. I will be using the supplied sails, they look decent enough for me and for this build. I prefer the look of billowing sails, I think models without sails look naked...

Spent a lot of my Saturday working on the ship...

 

Almost there... I suppose I could have taken more time, but this model is more "let's see how I like modeling tall ships" than "let's make it look perfect".

 

I'm really enjoying this build, and am already looking forward to the next one...

Finished!! I realize this has been a quick build, but I'm happy with how the ship turned out.

 

I plan on investing a lot more time into my next build, which will hopefully be started on my birthday... I've told my wife exactly which ship I would like...
