Bottled Ship Builder

Recommended Posts

At what point does one define miniature? Somewhere along the scale the word miniature transforms to lilliputian or itty-bitty. Most of the " tiny " ships I build in bottles measure 2.5mm at the bottleneck, a few in bottles which measure 1.0mm or .039 of an inch.

Great question.  This forum is more specifically for the non bottled ships.  They are considered miniature in the sense that they are smaller than what is generally built by ship modelers.  Their scales fall closely in line with traditional ship in bottle building which is why Bottled Ship Builder welcomes them to the forum.  

Your work is definitely one of a kind but is still in a bottle so it's more in line with the other forum.

They are certainly very nice bottles (and models), but not readily available.     I suppose one could use small festoon bulbs instead (about an inch long with a brass cap on each end, and the filament down the middle. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=festoon+bulb&biw=1280&bih=913&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi-nujnssfRAhUDrRoKHU1cAUYQ_AUIBygC#imgrc=u7xsHoZuWTwJ8M%3A
