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!)

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.

It's fun to see these all in one build logs.  Magnificent work.  The ship is beautiful.  Your method ensured the lines were nice and tight and if really filled the bottle well.  You did a great job. 

Thanks for your appreciation Daniel.
