    Here's another junk model. In my business we have to fool a camera and do so with large miniatures of real objects. You may have seen this one go over the edge of the world in a recent pirate movie sequel.

    I am a movie model maker and special effects technician, come into the business because I was a shipwright who went to film school. These are a few of the jobs I've done in miniature. I also work in live-action and ship handling for this type of film.
    All of these little ships are built by a team of skilled people, especially the painters. Since we have to fool a camera and make our hard work invisible, they do the final bit of magic. All you see is the paint job, really.
    The other photos are the BLACK PEARL, and the INTERCEPTOR brig I built and rigged myself.

    Movie miniatures are quite large so we can get the necessary detailing, which makes them easy to work on.
    A museum model must be very accurate as it is a record of a particular vessel, is a smaller scale and I think is harder to build and get right.
    You are fierce yourself sir, and I also admire you for your careful work. Lovely models! Very nice to see the sail rigging done properly, as most junk models get it wrong. Please post more pictures of your work when you can.
    I salute you.
