Bottled Ship Builder

Recommended Posts

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?

I like the idea, I am a big Star Trek fan. I have wondered about this before but never spoke about it to anyone. I thought I saw a picture of one online one time during one of my endless searches for something and getting sidetracked at other things I see. I sort of skimmed by it because I figured it was photo-shopped or something. I hope you can figure it out because I would love to see this!

I've contemplated the Serenity from Firefly in a bottle but haven't gotten to it.  I agree it would have to be in pieces but totally do able.  I'd look into how houses in bottles are built.  I think it would be very similar.  There's a couple builders here who have done buildings in bottles.  

Look up the Żuraw Gdański by Artur.  Thats a great example.
