  1. Pilot cutter Jolie Brise in a bottle - Scale 1/240

    Excellent work. Having been on the ship recently, your model is very accurate. Carry on. Can't wait to see it go into the bottle.
  2. Mini SIB "Salesman's Sample"-R.M.S. Titanic

    Just wondering if you were referring to the Fuller Brush Co. by your comments on traveling salesmen and their miniatures that's all.

  5. Pilot cutter Jolie Brise in a bottle - Scale 1/240

    As a point of interest, the Jolie Brise will be in Halifax on July 29th to Aug 1st of this year. I hope to get onboard and have my book by Thad Koza signed .
  6. Berchems Whale Barque Erik

    Thank you Alan. Bought it and is printing as I write. I'll read it first then later I'll start the built after a bit more research. Seems the Erik had an interesting career before she was sunk.. Thanks again. rollie

    FYI, the US aircraft carrier Eisenhower in now in HFX harbour for Canada Day celebrations. It will be here until July 5th. Got to like ships.
  8. Berchems Whale Barque Erik

    In Berchems book he says that the Erik had a rounded stern. Did the Erik have a rounded stern or a flat one as the New Bedford whalers and others of the era? I want to make it similar to the book but be historically accurate as well. Thanks in advance for any information.
  9. Black Pearl

    What size is the model ( l.o.a. ) and how tall will it be with the masts? Hope your hand heals up.. BTW, Canada is a metric country. Except for things going to the US where it has both metric and Imperial. As well as French and English.

    What size of bottle are you using? 750 ML is all I can see in the liquor stores here. Love the work.
  11. Berchems Whale Barque Erik

    Thanks again Alan.. The site worked fine, however the pictures were a bit small. I was also able to get a picture showing the bow of the Erik from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic here in Halifax.NS. It has a narwhal in it and I can not for the life of me find it any longer. Thanks again and I keep looking for that pic so I can post it. rollie

  13. Berchems Whale Barque Erik

    In F Berchems book on SIBs he talks about .building the ship Erik. Built in Scotland mid 1800s. Sunk late WW1 by a sub. between St.Johns NL and Sydney N S I have a son named ERICK and world like to build it for him as a gift. Anyone know of when I can get plans, photos, etc., of the ship of something similar.
  14. Steel barque Berwick Law

    Great work on both models.
