    Nice work. That's quite a lot of rigging to sort out. Look forward to seeing her finished.

    After laying is aside for most of last year, I picked it up again and am making good progress. After I stepped the mast I realized I made the ship about 4mm too tall for bottle I'd chosen. Luckily I had a few extra Scotch bottle paying around and the Aberlour bottle was just the right size ☺️. With any luck I'll be done in a few days.

    These are my latest pics on my build log,I decided to go ahead and make the hull of the Islay my second ww2 trawler the reason was that once I have put the sea in the bottle I could then place both hulls in position soften the sea on the radiator and gently press them into position as you can see by my second pic I wrapped the hulls in clingfilm so as to prevent any staining that may occur,and let the sea cool before removing them also its not a good idea trying to press the hulls with all the deck fittings added.

    Apparently theres a book out there too but I'm not sure how hard it is to get a hold of. Its a great project. I've thought of doing a screw steamer as well My family came to the US on one called the Teutonia. Thought it might be fun to have the ship in a bottle with a copy of the log book where their names are recorded on the stand or in the bottle neck. Its fun to add a little family history to ship in bottle building. I look forward to seeing yours come together.
