Ship in a bottle

posted in: Ships | 0

A close friend (who had introduced me in this exciting world more than fifteen years before) gave me this kit as a present. He had bought it in the Netherlands, but never opened the box. Neither had I made a ship in a bottle, so I gave it a try. It worked.

The model is completely built out of the bottle, using a special template provided in the kit.

The masts and all the rigging are folded, and a set of special threads allows you, once the model has been folded and inserted into the bottle, to unfold it again.

It was a challenge.
