It seems you have learned some new skills. Your masts look really marvelous. How did you make those 8 shapes in metal?

Yes, Carl, it is. I used a needle from the syringe. I'll try to take a series of photos of this process later.

Ah hah Igor!!!!

 

I’ve been waiting for you to get back onto this boat.  What took you so long (LOL).

 

You know me, I’ll be eagerly following on as usual.

 

Cheers

That, my friend, is very nifty indeed. I would never have thought of such a simple, and yet effective method. Well done!

Thank you, Carl!
This idea came up suddenly. But I liked the ease of making these parts.

I have to remind myself that this ship is a mere 10cm long ... Increadible work on those masts and sails, Igor. I see you still have the giant match.

Igor, there are many things that are wonderful in that series of photos!

My favorite is the precision with which you threaded and sewed those sails! And kept the fabric looking utterly pristine!!

Yesterday I decided to make a new boat for the schooner.

Igor; I just started following your build. Absolutely incredible.  Can  you describe your process for making sails especially the material used, etc. Thank you for posting these beautiful photos...Moab

I am building the "Atlantic" from the Bluejacket kit and found your blog while searching for others doing the same. Amazing! I certainly hope to follow your progress until the model is safely installed in the bottle.

What type of magnification & lighting do you use while working? A photo of that would be appreciated.

Very impressive work, thanks for sharing.

Many thanks, Carl, Mark, Daniel, Patrick, jerrynast and Moab for yuore feedbacks!

I'll try to answer your questions soon.
Now I have already started the process of moving the model into the bottle. And I'm going to show you the photos of this process.

Hi Moab!
Most of the time I use the cloth, named percale, to make sails.
Please, look at these my logs - there are some photos about the process of making the sails - 

 

If you have any more questions, please, ask me.

Best Regards!
Igor.

Igor.

Sorry....I am late to the party.

I am totally gob smacked with your model SIB.

I do not know you but looking at the incredible tiny details of this fully planked and decked ship I do know that I am witnessing world master class SIB modelling.

I have the old Jack Needham book which is good but compared to what you are doing it doesnt come near.

If you have not already, please write a book on it including this model.

Your build has taught me so much already.

Your are in another league.

Right down to the sails which are bang on the right colours and not just stuck on but with tiny mast rings toboot. The list is endless.

Absolutely totally awesome.

I have never seen anything like it.

Thank you my master.

Pete

Many thanks for your feedback, Pete! 

My home library has several books by different authors about making ships in a bottle. But in these books there are usually only basics and simple examples. So don't limit yourself to books! Communicate with colleagues, fantasize, try to do things that seem impossible at first. 

Best regards and good luck!

Igor.

P.S. Write a book? I have another idea!

By the way, Pete, you can see the sail making process here -  https://modelshipworld.com/topic/15797-pilot-cutter-jolie-brise-by-igorsky-finished-bottle-scale-1240/page/2/

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.
