Gwyl Blaser Posted April 26, 2015 Report Share Posted April 26, 2015 For almost any other type of hobbies or modeling that we do, most of us started with some kind of kit, written instructions etc. For ships in bottles, there are some instructions, but very few kits available for the new modeler. The new modeler must become a scratch builder from the start. I wonder if some beginners might be nervous to start this hobby, with limited abilities and knowledge, when they compare themselves to a modeler who is seasoned. In an effort to help the beginner on their journey to successfully creating their first ship in a bottle, I would ask those who have some experience to chime in, and hopefully answer a few questions. If you had to do it over again... 1. What ship or style and level of complexity would you choose for your first SIB? 2. What size would you model be? (This leads to the next question) 3. What would be the best choice of bottles and size of bottle for your first build? 4. Would you put sails on it, or leave it bare? 5. Are there other things that you wished you had known, or done different for your first SIB? Gwyl IgorSky 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
