    And she's done! Completed today. Please bare in mind this is not a copy of any real tea clipper but just 'a ship in the bottle'.

    Forward mast and most of the rigging done. Tried to experiment by super glueing cotton thread and then hanging it weighted at one end,so it would become rigid and straight. These I then cut up later and added to the rigging through the bottle neck. Sort of worked but a bit fiddly.

    Bottom hull pieces go in without to much trouble. Stand is glued with five minute setting time epoxy glue.

    As it is a full hull size with no sea I construct a mini stand for the ship to sit on in the bottle. Made deck stuctures ,lifeboats,anchors etc. Poop deck railings made out of thin styrene which took an age to make. Decided to have just paper sails(its quicker!)

    Added poop deck and forward deck which are detachable.Some rigging ratlines and spars done.

    Originally I did not intend to skin the hull in styrene but my sanding was so terrible I resorted to using 0,3 styrene to skin it.(Not an easy job)
