Jolie Brise Pilot Cutter 1913 by greatgalleons - FINISHED - Artesania Latina

Recommended Posts

so for the sails I never use the cheese cloth the kits provide. I purchased some light weight off white material at hobby lobby

I use for all my builds.   The Jolie Brise has a faded reddish set of sails so I used burgundy and brown food coloring with tea stain solution to stain the sails I sewed for this kit.   I modified the length for the large spanker sail to fit to compensate for the addition of the coach roof.   One little change in the kit will make a difference to other areas of interest.

Great job on the model.  I have had this kit for near on 15 years and I am just now getting to finish her.  I am using your craftsmanship as a guide.  Can you provide some advise or resources on making the sails?  I would be interested in hearing how you add the bolt ropes and how you simulated the seams for the sail panels.  Any help you could give would be appreciated.

Just bought the Jolie Brise kit. 

Hello John, welcome to MSW.

Hope to see a build log for your Jolie Brise, it is a good subject with a long history and still afloat.  Why not post a few words in the New Members Introduction thread?
