  1. Thanks guys I am glad you like it more to come in the next few weeks!
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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 ⚔️
  7. So the stand is complete and the seas installed inside the bottle.
  8. Welcome aboard Moab. Good to have you here. So is it Mother of All Battles ha ha! Chass
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. The latest journal is now up for grabs on the clubs forum! Enjoy, Chass
  12. 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
  13. 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

  15. Very cool, thanks for posting everyone! ⚔️ Chass
  16. Well it's time to resurrect this project and get it done! It has been over 2 years. I will start to post soon. The Preussen is going to be a bit of a stinker as there is a ton of rigging involved. There is going to be some head scratching for sure. Stay tuned! Chass 😵

  18. Thank-you Onni, and I hope you and your family are well and staying safe! Chass
  19. So she finally left the dockyard and hit the bottle/light bulb! Chass ⚔️
  20. Absolutely love this Jesse! Thanks for posting*
  21. Thanks for the kind words James!
  22. Some more work on the running rigging and ratlines on the mizzen/spanker! Slowly getting things sorted out! Below is a shot of the stern, working on the ratlines and painted the emblem detail. I used some metallic gold paint and painted it freehand. Turned out okay! Looks better in-person. Chass
