    HMS Terror

    That's looking really great, I think the size looks really good aswell. 😁
  2. Click on the three lines in the top right hand corner, then from the options click on clubs, the first post on this page will contain a link to the shipwrights journal pdf.
  3. Hi lubber, sounds like you'll be busy for a while! I have to confess I am not building my kit at the moment, due to lack of pictures of this ship, I will want to add some more detail. Secondly I've just also started a larger planked ship build, although I'm getting ichy fingers to build another ship in bottle as I much prefer small scale. 😁
  4. Welcome aboard, its a great place!πŸ˜ƒ

    That's looking really good, can't wait to see it bottled. πŸ‘
  6. I hope so, it will be the first ship I've built with collapsible masts, so should be fun to see how it turns out! πŸ˜€
  7. Hi lubber, thanks for the information, your right about the putty it's rock hard! It's also missing the Hull of the ship, but it has a very good scale plan for it so I can easily make another, also the writing on the bottle is massive so might change it. πŸ˜€
  8. Luckily I have a plan, so this will be my next build!πŸ˜€
  9. Just found this on a carboot sale, Β£3.00! Box sealed with very old dried out sticky tape, so I thought I won’t damage the box and try to open it, I will wait until I get home and gently cut the tape and open it. So I set off home, excited to see what looks like a great find from 1988, once home I carefully open the box to find everything but.....?..
  10. What a great idea! That looks superb, 10 out of 10 from aswell! πŸ‘
  11. That looks great! Nice job with the flag as well.😎

  15. Glad the sites back up and running, that felt like someone had nicked my sweets! I'd be lost now without it! πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Happy days are here again! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
  16. Welcome aboard shipmate, you've definitely joined a superb bunch! 😁
  17. Sea is Finally dry enough to cast off! Very fiddly but half way there.
  18. Bottle painted and acrylic decorators caulking pumped in with a skeleton gun. i put a length of stiff clear plastic tube on end of the nozzle which allows me to direct the flow straight onto the bottom of the bottle, then whilst still wet I push it down with a slightly wet metal spatula and smear it around a bit to get desired effect. Once it has skinned over I will paint another coat of acrylic paint over the surface to replicate the surface of the sea before setting the hull into it while it is still soft. That’s the plan for now anyway!πŸ€”
  19. Back to it after a bit of a break, (after trying to fathom out whatever posessed me to make it so small and fiddly!) πŸ˜‚ it's time to 'try' and rig it. Off to a slow start, but it's a start nonetheless! πŸ˜‚
