Re: Building the Black Pearl

just noticed the Party Pail bucket -- a favorite staple in our household, especially to make chocolate milkshakes.

Re: Building the Black Pearl

understood and nicely phrased. having made many mistakes with many of my model-building projects, it's always nice when a mistake works out for the better, as in the slight list on your ship. good luck in nashville, look forward to your future posts -- who knows, i may be inspired to take a shot at ...

Re: Building the Black Pearl

golly bob howdy!

your approach to base is exactly what i would do if i had the skills and/or patience.

love the slight cant/tilt -- beautiful approach -- very majestic/elegant -- captures the spirit of Jack/Pearl, while showing off model.

thanks for continuing to document your progress.

Re: Building the Black Pearl

your build never ceases to amaze me.

curious, i notice you do not have cannons in every one of the second floor windows (pardon my non-nautical lingo) do you plan to have some out and some in? or is there some way to get cannons into openings?

Re: Building the Black Pearl

sails look amazing...bravo! as i am using all rigging line supplied in kit, i have no strong opinions about what looks better of the options you've described...i'm confident that whatever you choose will end up looking FABULOUS. there is someone on RPF doing a Dutchman kit...when it's ready for orde...

Re: Building the Black Pearl

some screen caps i found online show the patchwork as rather obvious on the sails, so if you are going screen accurate, i wouldn't make the sails any more subtle than what you have already done. i am also painting on the patchwork, and yes, your observation that this hobby is often more punishment t...

Re: Building the Black Pearl

Phil, with all due respect, your build of this ship is wicked crazy NUTS!! i am continually floored by the attention to detail you are putting into this build -- what a labor of love. i am in extreme envy mode. is it too late for me to apply for the position of your beloved daughter so I can have th...

Re: The Black Pearl...Kit Review & Modification ideas

Robert, I am nowhere close to the league you are in -- it appears you have much more knowledge than I do about sailing ships. I simply bought this kit because I loved the movies, and am doing my best to build the kit to look like the one in the movie, but straight from the box and not with all the a...

Re: The Black Pearl...Kit Review & Modification ideas

then, in my humble opinion, i would build it in a fashion/color that pleases you most -- why even worry about how historically accurate it is, color wise or otherwise?

but again, perhaps I miss your point.

Either way, it is irrelevant that I understand your motivations or not. Have fun.

Re: The Black Pearl...Kit Review & Modification ideas

i find it odd that you would pose these questions without some idea of an answer yourself. if you invest $100 in the kit and then desire to modify it to be more colorful but yet historically somewhat accurate, which is a pretty big investment of your time, it seems like you would already have some i...

Re: Building the Black Pearl

thanks for the tips on the extra masts that shouldn't be there -- just two less i have to worry about rigging! :)

and thanks for advice on waiting to put figures in until the ship's finished.

and yeah, i'm gonna take the rigging one little step at a time.
