  1. For those of you who recognize and/or celebrate Thanksgiving Day I wish you all a happy and blessed one! Jesse
  2. Wow! You have quite the talent for miniature detail. This looks like a larger scale build.
  3. This is so cool! I don't hear much about people carving real figureheads now days.
  4. The detail on what you have started looks pretty darn good!
  5. Plasticine is the easiest. If you heat it on the bottom side a little after it is put in place it partially melts and seals itself to the glass. You can shape the top however you want, it never hardens and stays just like you put it.
  6. Welcome R Johns! There is nothing quite like looking at your first SIB completed. You already have modeling experience so this should be a smooth transition for you. Would love to see you do a build log here when you get started. Jesse
  7. Welcome to the forum Nils!

    I always wanted to do a SIB with several ships in it
  9. Hello Matthias, welcome!
  10. I do too! I've used magnets with all kinds of projects around my house, can't believe I haven't thought of this
  11. Absolutely! That's just what this forum is for. Would love to see and follow your progress. There some great SIB modelers here that can guide you along if you need it, great support here.
  12. Welcome Tony! Don't worry about how detailed your first one is. No matter what, you have to start somewhere and you learn what does and doesn't work for you as you build them. I still have my first one. I jokingly call it my "Shipwreck-in-a-bottle" but it is still special because it was my first. Jesse
  13. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season and/or however you recognize the Holiday season! Jesse

    I really love how detailed this model looks! Jesse
  16. Welcome Bosun Moon. I never thought about an SIB that large but it does sound like something I would like to do. Not sure if there are any bottles made that size or not.
