Golden Yacht in a bottle by Warnerade - Amati - Shawn W.

Recommended Posts

This turned out to be a very rewarding little kit. Definitely made a few mistakes along the way, but it wasn’t bad for my first model build. The directions were pretty specific and told me exactly what I needed to know to complete it. I ended up breaking the mast when I raised it up because a string was wrapped around it and I didn’t catch it until it was too late.E29EA943-D013-4ED0-90B8-DDAC6FB9238D.jpeg.7dd83217ced39dcdfc52b457184c92cf.jpeg8AE0C186-CBE1-4471-B4DA-410B8110DC90.thumb.jpeg.c4814487eb6ff5bf0794abbc5aedab4a.jpeg5EC3214A-E9B9-45F4-BBD2-BFEA6A9C3702.thumb.jpeg.88798930fbb138f3452d1877cf297111.jpeg3F0B0B7B-3D21-4512-832A-BF3A774AF89F.thumb.jpeg.09e90dfdb62f34847a6e75b47222e07b.jpeg4E54A2F8-812A-413E-8B0E-469C49507FB3.thumb.jpeg.8e09c6410b33f2604736629ce505cce5.jpeg

Nice kit :). You could fix the mast fairly easily - I had the same problem with my Longboat in a Bottle (different reason) and managed a repair. Use a piece of wire with a "hook" bent into the end to pull back on the top of the mast, and a "push" stick to support the mast just below the break. It takes a bit of patience, but it IS possible :).

I actually attempted that and was able to fix it more so than it was, but it got to the point where I felt I was going to break it worse if it kept fussing with it so I superglued the break and sealed the bottle. It was my first build so I’m glad it didn’t turn out perfect. There are two “ship in a bottle” kits by this manufacturer, I’m planning on building this same one again and fixing the mistakes and building the second one at some point in the near future.
