Pirates Island : Boat and Ship and more !

What's happening at Pirates Island ??
some guys are waiting something but what ??

 oh ! a Ship is coming !!

It's time to use the new small boat :



some pictures of the making-of and the original stuff before conversion and painting :




and I've another ship (bigger and better for 1/72 !) to paint :



-The Large Ship is a toy-ship and the little boat is converted from a boat found in a charity-shop.
-The Pirates are from "Germania Figuren"    which have an excellent range of Caribbean Pirates !
I've to add some oars to the pirates...but before find them !
I don't want to glue them because I think that this boat could have many uses... and I will try to add a removable mast and sail, a little bit like in the "Zvezda Medieval Boat".
-The pontoons are scratch-built and removable, so they can have several uses and places.

      I've seen similar toy-ships re-painted on a blog but can't re-find where exactly !

    1. I'm not the first who makes that !
      I would like to find where I've seen them ...
      this one is underscaled for 1/72 (maybe good for 10/15mm ?) but the other will be perfect for my favourite scale ...

  5. Beautiful work, Sam. All of it! The large ship is an amazing work of transformation, sir. I wait for more.

    BTW, these are extremely brave soldiers who row out to a ghost ship!

    1. Thanks Master J ! only painting work on the large ship.

      Yes, they are very courageous: and note that they don't have any weapons and oars !!
      Brave or crazy ? that's the Question !

      you're only interested with my treasure ... com'on and you will have problems with some guys hidden somewhere in the Island ...
      (like I've no name for my boats : maybe "Sea Dog" and "Ol'Ferris" could be fine ? what do you think ?)

    1. The rum is coming and a lot of stuff for the Island.
      Maybe a place to drink something and some pretty girls for the fun !

  9. Great looking work Sam! I look forward to seeing what you do with the larger ship in the last photo - those deck guns look as though they would be perfect as guns for a shore battery!

    Ion is currently making me some merchant ships for my pirates to chase, i will post them once he gives them to me!

  10. Thanks Brian !
    I've seen some other similar ships in another blog but can't remember which one ! oups and grrrrrr !

    For the large ship, I've not planned to do it in the next weeks but I think that I will paint it more quickly !

    The guns will be removed for sure and replaced with some others.
    Coastal battery ? good idea !
    Merchant ships is a good idea! Let me know when they will be on your blog !

    1. Merci !
      jamais de 15mm pour moi !
      1/72 pour les figs, pas d'échelle pour les bateaux.... peuvent peut-être convenir pour differentes échelles...

    1. Merci François !
      si c'est du petit dont tu parles, ça m'a demandé beaucoup de temps et d'inventivité, surtout pour le gouvernail pour qu'il s'ajuste à peu près au barreur .... mais je suis plutôt content du résultat !

  16. Mais ... c'est mon bateau pirate !
    Joli travail en tout cas. J'attends de voir ce que tu feras pour les rames, je n'ai pas encore essayé pour mon bateau de Laketown...
