I have been thinking about doing this project for a while. There has been a few beginners that have signed on to the site so I thought maybe now is as good a time as any. What I want this build log to be is a step by step instruction in how to build a simple first ship in bottle. This isn't to say don't comment or ask questions. Please ask lots of questions or give input. I want others to learn a lot from this log. Part of the purpose for creating this log is the lack of good kits out there. There are some kits that create beautiful models but they are difficult for beginners. Th
This ones about done but I thought I'd share. I'm starting to get into war gaming so I thought if make a fleet. This is my first model for that. As a war gaming model she won't be bottled. Still got to come up with rules but I thought I'd put a fleet together first.
I started this log on MSW some time ago and never really completed it. With the Scavenger commission I brought it back out to test some new techniques. My object really was to take a kit that I received and build a really good ship in it. At least better than what I think the kit makers intended. Over all I like the Wood Krafters kits as beginning ship in bottle kits. They are simple and their bottles are clear with huge openings that gives you a good idea on ship in bottle techniques with out it being overwhelming. As far as historical or actual ship quality goes they aren't that great.
