Bottled Ship Builder

Hello from the Piers on the Hudson, NY!

Recommended Posts

New to forum, I got into the hobby back in the late 1970"s buying my first kit from Model Expo in NJ. I met  Mr. Frank Mastini there, and ended up becoming a student of his. I recently retired and am now getting back into ship building. Currently started a Mamoli Alabama, and an old Authentic models kit Princess Royal Ship in a Bottle, which I picked up at the Disney World Souvenir shop outside the Pirates of the Caribbean Ride. Totally different feel from building a plank on frame, I find it more enjoyable & relaxing, not to mention a lot smaller mess & footprint to deal with. Looking forward to tips & tricks & checking out your Bottle builds!

Welcome aboard lobo! You’ve joined a great  place. Definitely agree that it’s a different feel to plank on frame, I’ve only done 4 sibs so far, but recently started a plank on frame model and not enjoying it half as much, that and I can’t find a bottle big enough!😂
