HMAV Bounty by Brian Stein - AMATI - Scale 1:60 - Finished

Recommended Posts

I decided to add my build log of the AMATI - Bounty 1787 which was my 3rd Build.


I jumped from the Lady Nelson to the Bounty and it was tough at times due to lack of instructions that I assumed would be there. I suppose going from a level 2 type kit to a level 4 means that you don't always need the instructions as detailed and that you would already know what to do.  Anyway with help from the build logs on NRG and Donny at Ships of Scale, I persevered thru it and about year later happy to have it completed and shown proudly in my entrance hall. 


Current Build: BlueNose II by Artesenia Latina 


Previous Builds:  Lady Nelson 1:64 - Victory Model 

Previous Builds:  Virginia 1819 1:41 -Artesenia Latina


Next Build : Amerigo Vespucci 1:84 - Panart

Dry fitting the keel.



This re-enforcing needs lots of sanding.

Hi Brian,

 I have always loved the Bounty, she's a beautiful ship that I've always loved. I did once (years ago) when learning the hobby only got as far as the hull and deck furniture. I didn't have the hands for rigging due to bad illness causing shaking so had to stop. I keep saying to myself that one day I'll try again, it will happen.

. First person through the door means I've got a front seat to follow along with.

  Good luck 🙂

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
