    I got a chance to work on the mount that holds the hull in the light bulb and soldered up the Bow Sprit and Jib Boom complete with Martingale. I referenced Underhill's book for this. I had to build a special jig from a miniature close pin to hold the Martingale while soldering. I chose the eyelet end of a sewing needle for ease of rigging later! Tweezers show scale reference Note dot of glue to hold the needle while soldering into position. Used some thin wood shims to get the proper positioning. Here is the completed Bow Sprit/Jib Boom less paint, foot ropes, Head/back stays, and guys. Still some intricate work to do on it today!

      Yes, I agree with that. Actually I'd like to write a series about my SIB history in an installment of anecdotes (I like to write short stories also as a hobby and I had a bit of inspiration when I resurrected my SIB hobby recently). Where would be the best place to post these? In the general discussion forum or the Shipwright club or someplace else (or not al all!)? It would be a chronology of the few models I picked up over the years, the ones I made and how I ended up here in an essay style.

      If you write them with or without some pictures then please send them to me here when finished in a word document and I will add them to our journal in instalment . I started the first journal December of 2018. The next one comes out mid June of this year. So yes, please provide a chronology of your models and each article will go into the journal. Also you can use your pen name of Lubber123 or your real Christian name works too. BTW I really like your avatar of the old man with the pipe. Very cool!

      Hi Jeff, here's my first draft about my old SIB...could I also submit this to "articles"? I have a small series I'm crafting as I examine my SIBs one by one...

  4. Hi Lubber123, I sent you a pm from gmail. Did you get it?

    Hi Frankie, I would like to use your still life painting posted here for the cover page of our next Bottled ShipWright journal which I will release this June of 2019. Your artwork is excellent and should be celebrated by our members. May I please have your permission to use it? Please advise. Jeff

    What else do you model besides SIBs?

    Hey Jeff, you remind me of my brother-in-law. He is on his third telescope as well. It’s quite the beast. He has a van that he hauls it around in and he has to put it together as it comes in sections. Once I tried to ask him how much he paid for it and he declined to say so I am assuming it’s a small fortune. We were out one night years ago and we could see the rings around Saturn. Very cool to see God’s creativity up close.

    Working out scale.

    Hi James, Seeing how this subject can be somewhat frustrating for most bottleship modelers I will post an article next Bottled ShipWright journal in June. Stay tuned!
  12. You are certainly welcome Bernard! I am glad you liked it. 😊

    Got some time in the Man Cave to work on the base for the bulb and started on the masts and support for the hull. The masts are small wire and sewing needles soldered together. If you look closely there is a gold patina dry-brushed on the base and support structures for the bulb. I made a special little tool to measure the contour of the inside of the bulb as well. Enjoy!
