This is my loooooooong term project chaps. It's the Black Pearl from Pirates of the Caribbean.
It's a 1:72 scale with a double plank construction.
I've been working on this one for about 2 years, only managing to spend an hour here & there over lunchtimes whilst at work. A truly beautiful & huge kit with precision lazer cut frames & intricate brass turnings, etchings & fittings. I've added a few extras myself like detailed doors and working flickering lights.











Really need to set my camera up, as my iPad these new LED lights I'm using.

I just looked it up and if it's the same kit it was £175 plus shipping on ebay. Says that it's 920mmx205mmx85mm. Though that might be a different kit from this one since it looks like it says it's 1:65. I think it would be fun to try out a model like this, but I have no idea where I would put it.

Yep it's a biggy [smile] not 100% sure of the scale either 1:65 or 72ish!
There are a couple of alternate copies / kits available at the min, this one was £300 + P&P from HK and has all the whistles and bells was about 3 - 4 years ago when I got it.
Funded by selling my HPI Baja 1:5

It looks like a lot of kit for the money, I was after a Baja a few years back, I used to be into nitro trucks and fancied a move up to petrol, the price scared me off lol
I still have a few trucks and a couple of cars, but I haven't even tried to start them up for a long time

Yeah this model is monster of a kit. The parts you get are incredible and of the highest quality.
The only thing I have negative crit are the dowls for the masts, which aren't very straight.
No big deal dowls is cheap enough.

Baja!
Was insane, upgraded all the parts and had it fully race tuned....it become that fast I couldn't control it.
It used to go screaming off down the road and would wheelie & flip over ha ha ha
So I sold it to fund my quadcopter build DX6i [smile]

Thanks to Bobby for posting the start of the wooden ship build has relit my Black Pearl build.
Probably the most relaxing build I've ever done!
Highly recommend a wooden ship build. Done a few Billings Boats in my time too.

Love the way the ripped sails lay on the deck

Cheers Graham, I have a little razor blade guillotine for the planks etc...which now the ship is back home I can use, but mostly use a snap-of craft knife.

When I was making this at lunchtime at work I had some tool issues, as I work in a high security prison and for obvious reasons I couldn't take anything sharp or pointy in :-/
