  1. Thanks Onni, coming from you that is a great compliment. Merry Christmas to you and yours and Happy New Year!
  2. The Insanity has been completed! I worked on this project off and on over the past 4 years. Life got in the way numerous times however I persevered. 'A mighty fortress is our God a bulwark never failing' is my motto under pressure. This is a Christmas gift for my youngest son!
  3. She hit the bottle on the weekend! More fun to be had hooking everything up etc. What is the definition of insanity? Putting the Preussen into a wine bottle!
  4. I use Aleen's tacky glue, white glue, some super glue for very small parts. Onni is right, superglue is really touch to get off the glass.
  5. Now for the fun part, all of the rest of the rigging to get done! Also I have to make the jibs as well.
  6. The annual edition of the journal is now in the clubs forum for your viewing pleasure! Chasseur ⚖️
  7. The Main mast is done less running rigging.
  8. The Mizzen mast is done, which is weird as it sits midship on the Preussen. When I think of a mizzen mast it comes as something being located on the stern of a ship. I am modelling the sail detail taken off of the Cap Horn model by Heller. The Preussen will be in heavy seas as modelled. Also finished the detail on the stern in gold. Two more masts to rig up then it's on to the running rigging, then into the bottle. Or as the late Jack Hinkley would say, time to "Hit the Bottle."
  9. The annual edition of the Bottled ShipWright will come out on Oct 4th, 2021 to coincide with Ship-in-Bottle day which was officially declared by Commander Donald Hubbard.
  10. Jigger done less running rigging to be added.
  11. Hello, Suchojik, Find my build on the Preussen Nitrate Clipper ship and you will see how I carved a wood seas our of cedar. Chass.
  12. Just finished the Spanker less the control lines that go to the Jigger Mast. I have to get the yards on the jigger first to determine length of control lines.
