    Hello From Holland

    Greetings and salutations!
  2. Dr. Morrison has a nice demo on The Curiousity Show on YouTube. Keyword search Ship in bottle. Also see The Woodwrights Shop. Season 26 ep.1 also found in YouTube. I like the ice cream stick method because plasticine really stays soft and flexible so the ship can pull out. Glued to a ice cream stick in the bottom of the bottle, the ship is firm. Fair winds, Jeff
  3. Just a Sharpie waiting to go in the bottle.
  4. Welcome to the forum Bruce. I too use Plastice modeling clay. I cut a little worm of blue and white. I twist together like a braid, the fold over and flatten and repeat like Damascus steel, until I get the color I want. Could be milky or total light blue. Then you slip it in the bottle and using tools, flatten it out. Make waves, touch in white caps if you feel the need. A demo can be found on The Woodrights Shop on PBS television Season 26, episode 1. https://video.unctv.org/video/woodrights-shop-ship-bottle/
  5. I pull up the episode on the interweb thingy every now and then for reference. (Hope that doesn't sound creepy) Argh factor.- Haha The other Jeff
  6. Hold on a minute... I saw this guy on Roy Underhill's show on PBS who made it look easy. That episode inspired me to complete the task, and build a ship in a bottle.
  7. Looks good to me! Nice work! On to the next one?!
  8. Here's the final product.
  9. So I have been thinking for some time now, about the starship Enterprise in a bottle. How hard can it be? (Laughing) Obviously it would have to be in pieces. I was thinking fishing line instead of pegs. Put them in loosily, then slide pieces up on the line and position and glue tight. It would probably need a support base for the ship, not the bottle. Clear acrylic, or hang off a fishing line from top of bottle. Could be inverted, hanging off a cork as well. Any thoughts and ideas? Had anyone does this?
  10. Bermuda sloop is back in the bottle! yay!
