If you don’t have log for it where could I go online to help straighten me out on all these new terms. Thanks in advance. Rick

  10. Hi everyone, I’m new to building ships in a bottle. Hope to learn a lot on here, because as of right now I don’t know where to start. I do have woodworking experience though, I’ve been building scale model vehicles for years. But I’ve been wanting to Build a ship in a bottle for a while. I’ve gotten burned out on building scale vehicles, so I figured what better time to change things up and start building these for a change. i look forward to this new hobby and getting to know you all.
