The hardest part of bottling one like this is the fine rigging. I'm guessing you use wire. I have a friend that build in this scale though he specializes in passenger ships and thats what he uses. The problem with it is, in regards to bottling, it doesnt fold well and would not look as clean as the unbottles versions.  Its also hard to find thread as this as wire.  I don't blame you for not bottling these.  It would require a bigger scale or out of scale rigging.  I appreciate you sharing your wonderful work with the group.

Miniature ship models have always fascinated me, but it would be impossible and very limiting to place them inside a bottle. Although the glass case she’s in is semi permanently sealed.
