  1. Finally made some more progress on this. I had used an old watch gear to make a ship's wheel the last time I made this SIB so I reprised that method and also made a capstan out of a gear. Then I found some watches that I think I might be able to repair and got sidetracked repairing all my old watches and bands! Another hobby for another forum I suppose. Well here is my current progress. I have the deck detail done so now it's on to grinding down dowels for the masts, yards and spars. I left the ship's boat loose on deck to see if it doesn't interfere with folding down the foremast once I'

    Greetings from Chicago

    I’ve always had an interest in ships in bottles but never built one. I’m going to try one after I finish my “Armed Launch.” ...Moab

  3. Dam Dam! Plan "A" didn't go to as planned! Just have to sort out a few threads, and figure out Plan "B"!! Cheers, Mick Just a quick update, I've almost sorted them all out, and at least no damage was done, inserting or un-inserting!! Mick

    Hi everyones! Some time ago I bought a new material for the making of the sea for one of my current projects. I've never used this silicon, so I decided to first try it with some simple project.So, more two years ago, I made this hull for yacht, but at that time I was not satisfied with the result, so that the hull was lying in the drawer of my desk all the time. Now I have decided to slightly improve this hull and use it for this project.

    Okay, it's HMS Captain which sunk in the Bay of Biscay in 1870. A Victorian navy turret ship which had a dangerously low freeboard. She goes together well with my other model;HMS Inflexible.

    Onni, Love the stand and SIB. Just starting a stand for my favorite SIB. It's a Jonny Reinert bottle and deserves a proper stand. Planning on power carving an octopus as the stand.

    The beginnings of a clipper. Flying Cloud? Cutty Sark? Lightning? Star of India? Not sure.

    Set the Black Pearl inside a small half barrel with a moonlight sky as a backdrop and lit by a small battery Led light. That was the image I had when I first started the model so I'm happy with the way that it turned out.

    About a day later, I started to fill the second layer of silicone. I mixed the remaining 40% of the colored component A with an equal amount of the component B and the resulting mix I filled into the bottle. The surface of the "sea" was almost flush with the line cut of the hull along which is going the waterline.

    The idea of making this rigging of the boom was born suddenly for me. Feature of "bottle" modeling is that it should be possible disassembly of the rigging before placing the model in a bottle and reassemble all we have made before this, but inside the bottle. In this project, I am going to put into bottle the hull of the model piece by piece, and then later install the mast and pull the rigging.

    Here is the next small update - I finally fixed the mainsail and cut off any excess threads.

    So, I also continue to learn. This model has become my testing ground for the testing new ideas and technologies I was continuing to work with sails. At first I have glued grommets using CA. But it was not the good idea. Then I tried to use Titebond II and then I have drilled holes.

    The next step is the making of the sails. First I tried to make them my old way, but I did not like the result.

    The next stage - making of the steer wheel. In this case I also have used some photoetched parts.
