  2. Good night. Helped by some solid wood that has a curved shape, after having some polo sticks in very hot water all night, with some sergeants it is taken to its position and allowed to dry well. We do the two huts at the same time. Once dry, we adjust to the curvature of the roof, we lower one of them to the correct height of the rail, we practice the scuppers and we pay the first of the rails, which gives us the correct height. Helped by the press, once the first one was glued, we glued the second one that we can see longer, by the way I forgot to mention that I always paint, in this case I varnish, cherry color, the interior before gluing it, thus avoiding undesirable stains or errors on the cover . I prefer not to give the height measurement to the two rails before gluing, because any deviation in the height of the deck from one to the other, even a more pronounced curve, would cause an error, which would force it to be changed, when it is much easier, for me. With the razor blade remove the thickest and finish off the heights with sandpaper, so I ensure equality height of the edges. Greetings. ..

  4. For me Facebook is just a quick peep at the latest bottled ships mostly produced by the same people often or not but it’s anyway interesting to observe the different skill levels. I am on Facebook and probably on the bottom level of skill by the way! This forum is easy going and great for sharing information and especially wonderful build logs which I find very interesting which you don’t really get on Facebook. Maybe I’m old school as well, (at least old!) Onni.
  5. Hi. Hi. Curiously, since I began my interventions in this English Bottled Ship Builder forum, and later managed to open a section of this technique in a Spanish one, I received two invitations to join two Facebooks, one with the same English name and another from the Ibero-American Association of Ships in Bottle. I always wondered why ten years ago there were a lot of ship in a bottle forums. Have all ship-in-a-bottle modelers disappeared? Has everyone switched to Facebook?... Well, as far as I know, neither one nor the other, some blog, very few of some teachers and little else, I'm not very good at this Internet thing and even less so at Facebook, so It's just that I haven't been able to find or look for them...I still doubt that it may have happened. Of course accept, both invitations to join those pages, it would be impolite of me not to do so, it is a shared hobby, and of course one always has the exit door open if he does not like it. I have found, to my surprise, with an interaction, beyond the "likes" and similar icons that has surprised me, from many people who have been interested in my techniques to make the sea, others the backgrounds of sky and clouds or cliff materials, my construction techniques, even the type of woods I prefer... I have even been asked if I was selling a certain boat. Specifically, they want to buy me the "Bodrio"... if there is a taste for everything... I'm about to give it to them. It has touched me. In short, they are just a few reflections, the level of effort of Facebook is lower in that I do not put compilations or step by step of any model, answering technical questions is also easier and in general the pace of communication is more fluid and abundant. But I am old school and I like a forum, with its advantages and disadvantages. I'm just trying to understand what happened, whatever it is I've missed it, but something must have happened, Nor have I found more than three modellers that I already knew in Facebook groups and for whatever reasons they don't want to participate in forums even if they are specific, it's as if they had ended up scalded or burned... I keep wondering where the thousands have gone of members that made up the forums...it's all a mystery. All the best.
  6. Saludos. Ya saben que uso traducir, así que esto va a ser lento y espero que la traducción sea buena y se entienda. Vamos a mostrar mi último trabajo, se trata de un Cutterr clásico, de madera, no encontre planos....mentira y vedad ayer mismos descargar unos creo que el Spray de Boston, pero ya tengo avanzado el mío así que está guardado para otra ocasión. Siempre que podáis trabajar con planos es mi consejo, el vietnamita que cuando alcance el nivel suficiente quiero hacerlo con sus cuadradernas y medio casco, fue muy agradable de hacer, trabajar con fotografías no asegura la escala correcta y además ves partes de unos muy detallados y de otros así que al final no deja de ser un navío franquestein con distintas partes unidas de variadas procedencias. La técnica es de casco partido en dos y será el primero que monte con la botella en vertical, así que no tengo de momento ni idea como voy a solucionar este tipo de montaje, según avance en su diseño y construcción veré cómo organizo las líneas, tratando de que sean como en uno operativo. Así que vamos con lo que hay. hago uno... . Dos... . Y el final, los primeros en haya, muy fácil de trabajar, el tercero en pino, los dos primeros no se separan, los quiero para referencia y para trabajar parte del proceso si es que no es el final. se descompone, esto se debe a mi inseguridad al enfrentar este desafío. Se puede ver que en esta ocasión el entablado del deck está hecho cortando madera reciclada, la cual se desprendió de un triplay que se usó para arreglar una pintura, se ve que estaba en una casa o bodega con mucha humedad y estaba suelta, se tenia rastros de moho negro en algunas zonas, lave todo con lejia, agua y jabon y lo deje secar, el cuadro estaba tirado con un monton de escombros y chatarra en un rincon de la montaña, comportamiento vergonzoso que lamentablemente a pesar de la existencia de ecoparques hay quienes los mantienen. Terminado el entarimado, mientras secaba cada tablón, hice un mástil que no es el definitivo y preparé el camarote en dos partes, comprobé que había fallado en la medida de la boca y no encajaban entre sí, así que pegué las dos partes y como va a estar pegué el casco por dentro una vez y me lié con el techo, también con unos listones pequeños que al humedecerlos tomaban bien la curva, un problema ya que uso PVA cuando están humedecidos, la tarea se vuelve una vez más lenta el primero es fijo, es más fácil porque es seguir ese. Podéis ver el boceto que os sirve de guía y al que le he ajustado las proporciones de una botella muy bonita pero con un vaso horrible que deforma totalmente todo lo que hay dentro, pero su forma es ideal para hacer lo que me gusta... .llenarlo al milímetro, de hecho el mástil llegará a la mitad del cuello de la botella con la dificultad añadida de ajustar y dar forma a las velas sin perder un milímetro de la medida o será un fracaso. Casa casi terminada. Las tiras restantes con la lija se han ajustado al contorno del barco. Prueba como se ve la cabina y sus proporciones, creo que está bien. Otra vista pensando en como hacer y colocar los ojos de buey. Saludos.
  7. Hi. Keep the proportions and scale, that's how I understand these constructions... so either you find a bigger bottle or it's dry docked to wait for its bottle and then make one smaller than the dimensions and proportions between hull and sail is the authentic. That's my way of thinking. Greetings, it looks nice.
  8. I've made some progress on my America. Using John Fox's article from 1988 in Model Ship Builder, I made the hull blank. I sandwiched a thin piece of basswood between two others, establishing a keel line for the hull below the waterline. I used 0.010" styrene to establish a waterline. And then I cut another piece of basswood for the upperworks. I turned a couple of toothpicks down to 1/16" to pin them all together. I've made two templates, mounting them on basswood. Here's the side view. So now my question. I decided on the size of the ship based on the internal dimensions of the bottle. Is that the right way to think about this? I made the blank per the article: 3/4" thick, 1-1/8" wide, about 4" long. That'll make a model the same size as John's Bluenose. Bluenose's hull lines are similar to America's, but the yacht carried a lot more sail area. so the model would be taller than the inside the bottle if I built it to the same dimensions as Bluenose. So, do I build it a little bigger and find a bottle that will fit later? Or build it small and fit it into the bottle I have? Dan

  10. Well, go for it...it's not a difficult boat and it's very entertaining. All the best.
  11. Nice! I always wanted to build one of these
  12. Buenas y saludos: Les comparto el paso a paso de este bote, faltan algunas imagenes pero creo que se pueden interpretar, cuando estaba colocando la primera vela dentro de la botella al cortar los hilos sobrantes, la hoja me jugó una mala pasada, ustedes vean algunas imagenes raras de hilos sueltos y se daran cuenta que es cuando sin querer corte un hilo por que paso y como lo reconstrui, de todos modos ya saben si alguien quiere informacion especifica de alguna imagen solo tiene que preguntar, con gusto lo hare ayudarlo y explicar todo lo que quiera, cuando uso el traductor de Google, me resulta inaccesible comentar imagen por imagen y ahora me estoy quedando sin tiempo. Gracias por su comprensión. 23.webp
  13. Thanks for your comment. I hope I have not abused the photographs, there are really missing steps that I have not photographed, how to cut the strings once they are tight and glued or how I make the sea or take the silicone inside the bottle without staining and leave it exactly where I want, small techniques or tricks that in others step by step that I will photograph. Seeing the compilation of photos brings you closer to understanding how much work there is in this hobby and that my models are still very simple and imperfect. All the best.
  14. Wow! This has to be the most rigging I've ever seen on a SIB. Awesome!
  15. Thanks Oni. Greatings.
  16. Great looking ship and enhanced by the beautiful background . Well done Alvaro!
  17. The End. Greatings.

    Beautiful, Oían, very beautiful...congratulation. Greatings.
  19. Thanks! Not sure about master level, but I do try to push detailing as far as I am able. Unfortunately, arthritis pain in my hands and wrist are making things more and more difficult for me to work on small details. Anchor's A Weigh! John Fox III
  20. Thanks for the kind words! The realism comes from knowing "layers" beyond what you can actually represent and then attempting to make it "look" right. Anchor's A Weigh! John Fox III

    Thanks! I didn't give up, I just didn't have time for ships in a bottle, I hope to come back soon.
  22. Buenas noches compañeros: he estado un poco liada... les voy a compartir un paso a paso de la elaboración de la TWL por si les sirve, mis metodos todavia no son muy finos, ahora hay otras tecnicas que uso y creo Sé aviso, este creo que fue mi cuarto barco. Como saben utilizo el traductor de Google, por lo que no voy a poner más texto que esta introducción, si alguien tiene una duda o quiere una explicación de una imagen que lo diga, con gusto trataré de ayudar. Saludos.
  23. Hi, very good works. Máster level. Greatings.
