  1. Love this build and your creativity. Well done!
  2. I rounded up all of my parts I had made over 3 years ago for the masts et al. Today was a job planning session to get organized. Started on the Spanker! Thank goodness for Ashley Book of Knots, as I have to do a twist/knot when inserting the mast complete with the yards/spars in one go when it's time to insert everything into the bottle. This is where the work gets interesting*
  3. Finished the bowsprit, will start on all of the masts tomorrow.
  4. Welcome aboard Mate! Greetings from Canada.
  5. Forecastle area completed. Working on the Bowsprit etc.
  6. Finished deck items on the midship. Gangway completed moving forward to the Forecastle.
  7. Working on the deck and fitting her out. If you look closely at the shack at the stern you can see I just glued it. I have some more handrailing and another ladder to install on the aft, another funnel as well. Then I'll move to mid-ship to install some handrailing and two funnels on to and 2 below. Then I'll move forward to install the walkway from mid-ship to the bow area. Slow but sure, the CV variants have kept me extremely busy at work trying to navigate work flow and staff issues.
  8. Thanks guys I am glad you like it more to come in the next few weeks!
  9. Fair enough John, yeah no commitment as an honorary member whatsoever. I just want to recognize you and your past and present involvement. As far as an article, I can just create a small submission on BSW and then link it back to here for any updates etc. Your suggestion makes sense. Too bad about your business as everyone is suffering these days due to CV-19.
  10. Hey John very cool. Question would you be willing to summarize everything and put it into an article for the Bottled ShipWright Journal? Secondly, I would like to add you as an honorary member of the Journal. Are you okay with it? Jeff
  11. Yes this is very sad news. I had the privilege to get to know Terry through email response/correspondence. She passed the baton on to myself for editing the ShipWright magazine etc. She will be missed. For this years edition I will try and put together a special remembrance edition in her honor.

  12. Hey Jesse I trust your Christmas was good. Happy New Year to you and yours! Let’s hope and Pray 2021 is a better year.
  13. At the moment what ever you can get your hands on! Remember each model is an artform, so use something antique/unique and think outside of the box/bottle, be expressive/creative! Chass ⚔️
  14. So the stand is complete and the seas installed inside the bottle.
  15. Welcome aboard Moab. Good to have you here. So is it Mother of All Battles ha ha! Chass
  16. Working on the base. I have one base coat of paint completed. I used the pedestal from a piece of furniture I discarded. It's one of the bases off of a couch. Here is the roughed out part with my patented checkboard finish. Here is the area for the name plate. It will be just like the one I built for the Wivern. Here I am testing the fit in the saddle. Here is the first coat of flat black. I will use my signature gold drybrush technique on the checkers than varnish once completed. Stay tuned! Chass
  17. Back onto it. Started cutting and installing porthole windows Midships. Special tool made to cut and install accordingly! 4 done far left, just a push in press fit no glue.
  18. The latest journal is now up for grabs on the clubs forum! Enjoy, Chass
  19. Hello all, when I get into the office tomorrow I will post our Bottled Shipwright Journal to the clubs section for this calendar year. It's a special edition due to COVID. Jeff
  20. Welcome Will and yes the Bluenose is a nice build. John Fox III, who frequents this forum has a great build log on the fishing schooner. Jeff
