  1. I don't think any ones heard from any of the museums regarding any of the old ships in bottles. I've sent requests as well with no reply.
  2. Got the ships boat in. Just need sails and she's ready to bottle.
  3. I found this very interesting. https://sha.org/bottle/pdffiles/MillerSullivan1984.pdf
  4. I love the in bottle repair. You have some real talent. Great work. She's an incredible ship in bottle.
  5. There is a lot of options for that. I've seen lines cut off at the sea level and then covered up with a little sea. My favorite is lines that come up from the middle of the deck and are covered up with a hatch or deck house. I just think it's clever. The hawser hole idea is interesting too.
  6. Looking good. What material is the snow? I want to say Styrofoam but I'm not sure.

    Thanks Loan! I knew it was out there somewhere.

    I have seen this and they look very interesting and can be a good way to fill extra space in the bottle. Here's one I found from Folkartinbottles.com. My understanding of the process is that the "butterfly" part is actually two separate pieces. They are pulling into place with a string that runs up the central dowel. The string is glued down and tied off at the top. Then a cap is glued over the hole and string to give the appearance that it is one solid piece and hide how the trick was done.
  10. Excellent photography. The sea is incredible, I really like that you can see the prop under the water. The line situation looks tough. Are you able to get the ship out at this point?
  11. That looks really good. Are you splitting the hull? If so it's real subtle.
  12. Nicely done. She looks great!
  13. Looking great Igor. That's is a lot of lines. I'm sure you'll get her sorted out once she's in though.
  14. I've been asked to do a presentation on ship in bottle building at a library in town. To do so I needed something quick and easy so I started on this Bermuda sloop. I'll have to get more photo's later but what I've done is carved out the hull and planked one side. I left the other side unplanked to show how the ship goes together. I'm not sure I'll ever officially bottle this particular ship. I think I'll keep it for future demonstrations. I definitely need to bottle a good Bermuda sloop though. I really like these particular vessels.
  15. Great video Bob. It appears he runs a line from the top of the shrouds and through the mast so the mast can be pulled completely away from the ship.
