  1. Meinen ersten Beitrag (nach meiner Vorstellung) möchte ich mit einem meiner neueren Schiffe beginnen. Es handelt sich hierbei um das letzte von insgesamt vier von mir fertiggestellten, sogenannten 'Orlogschiffen'. Die Vorbilder hängen in meiner Heimatstadt Bremen im Rathaus von 1404. Sie stammen aus den Jahren zwischen 1545 und 1779. Das 'Wapen van Bremen', wurde 1750 gebaut und stellt ein Linienschiff von 1689 dar. Ich habe mein Modell in einem 25-Liter-Gärballon in Segmentbauweise eingebracht und dafür rund drei Monate gebraucht.

  3. The first "real" ship in a bottle that I built was the SCHULSCHIFF DEUTSCHLAND. I got married on it in 2013. So it was a very personal event, which has revived the long-cherished desire. Everything is still a bit clunky and crooked, but made with muuuuch love. Including wedding couple on the back.😍

    CUTTY SARK

    I had promised to present here some of my ships in bottles of the last years. But now I will show you my FIRST ship in a bottle, which I built at the age of ten. It is a plastic kit of the Clipper CUTTY SARK, which I got as a present at Christmas 1982 and "built" within three days. This is how it looked like... But nevertheless: Already at that time the desire should settle in me to build sometime a "correct" ship in a bottle, so completely without prefabricated parts. It should take over thirty years until it was finally so far... Best, Matthias

    Hello Everyone!

    Hello Everyone, I would like to intoduce myself with a few words. I was born in Bremen, Germany, the home of the worldwide known “Town musicians of Bremen“. It is located right next to Hamburg and after this the second biggest city in the north-western part of Germany. Bremen is located at the river Weser and also close to the North Sea. Besinde this, I grew up in the small village called Achim and as a child loved to paint old houses and castles, and of course tall ships. At the age of ten years I have received a gift of a model kit for a ship in a bottle, the CUTTY SARK. A

  7. Greetings Mathias, Welcome aboard! I too build my ships with no sea, or other distractions, for the same reasons that you do. It is often the entire hull shape that most defines a ship/boat. Anchor's A Weigh! John Fox III

  9. Alex, She looks like she was a beautiful ship. I know you will be able to restore her to her former beauty. Definitely keep us posted once you start the repairs.

  10. I was given this damaged model by Rob Napier and I think it is so well made it should be repaired and given a new home. The workmanship looks familiar so I am putting out these pictures with the hope they might reach the original builder. I won't be able to get to her until early next year anyway. She is an English 4 mast ship about 4" high and 8 3/4" long.
