Wooden pirate ship models are a way in which modelers can express their creativity as well as their copious building skills. A gentle touch should be used when handling wooden pirate ship models. The pirate ship should be put in a position where handling such a delicate item is discouraged. On higher shelves, this model ship runs a significantly lower risk of being carelessly pushed and otherwise cracked or broken. Wooden pirate ship models are often purchased with a glass case which is a wonderful protection method. Wooden pirate ship models can be constructed with fewer parts, and with a hull made from sturdy plastic, this allows for greater handling. Many wooden pirate ship models are complicated in design and build. With so many tiny details and minuscule enhancements, this particular model is thought to be harder to craft. The interconnected thread of parts can be particularly difficult to fix if just one simple part goes missing or is damaged. Wood pirate ship models are glowing gems in a model enthusiasts collection.
Prior to 1600 the bell would have been placed on the stern deck.The ships bell is usually located forward at the break of the forecastle on ship models prior to the 18th century then moved to the after end of the fore castle deck. The ships cook (or his staff) traditionally has the job of shining the ships bell. Bells cast from metal were first developed in the Bronze Age. The ships bell is usually made of brass or bronze, bright finished on the outside only and normally has the ships name and date of commission engraved or cast on it then filled in with black enamel. The bell clapper and clapper pin are of a metal composition, with a suitable eye in the end for attaching the lanyard. There is a supporting eyebolt. The clapper of the ships bell would be supported by a bronze lug. The ship modeler has the choice of making bells by turning from brass on a lathe, electro plating shell method or buying a prefabricated bell. Same with the belfry. A belfry can be carved from wood, sculptured from metal or you can buy one premade. On some vessels the bell assembly was hung from the belfry. On other vessels, the bell was hung on a curved iron post that was fastened to the deck.
Now, lets suppose you do manage to get someone at the hobby shop on the phone. Who are you speaking with? Could it be a ship model builder, a long term full-time employee who understands the ship model hobby world, a small business owner, a part-time student? Most likely you will be speaking to a part-time employee or a small business owner and while owners and employees have a vested interest in your business, they dont always have the experience to address your concerns or the ability to provide personalized ship model and parts and fittings searching services. Sometimes they cant even get replacement parts from the manufacturers for you (see the information about manufacturers and distributors above)! The hobby market has changed in recent years and most hobby businesses are catering to the general consumer. In other words, their focus is elsewhere and its because sales of ship model kits, fittings, parts, and accessories are a very small part of their overall business.
More realism could be added like ballast placed in the hold prior to adding cargo. As an alternative to the standard plank on bulkhead that most ship model kits utilize, the builder can either convert the kit to a plank on frame or purchase one of the few plank on frame kits that are available. Exposed ribs can be fashioned using the bulkhead pieces as templates. Add reinforcement to the ribs between the decks by constructing beams. Some of the plank on frame kits that are available are the US Frigate Confederacy, Bounty, US Essex, America, Victory, USS Constitution and Santisimo Trinidad. Scratch building a plank on frame ship model is also possible. Ensure that you have good quality drawings and are familiar with how ships hulls are designed. If you do build a plank on frame model, youll probably achieve more satisfaction. The beauty of any ship model is the intricate detail. A plank on frame ship model allows you to provide detail not just on the upper deck but also on the decks below.
