Bottled Ship Builder

Hello from the UK


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've just found this site and joined up.

I've been ship bottling for some 40 years, on and off, and planning to do more now that I'm free from the daily grind! Once I've trawled the forum and got the hang of it, I'll try to post some pics.

Incidentally, I'm a member of the EASIB: European Association of Ships in Bottles - we have a biennial gathering, usually at a historic maritime site to meet up and display our models.

Thank you for the welcome and kind comments.

I must add that the "Marie Sophie" model in the brandy bottle was one of my early efforts, some 40 years ago - unfortunately I used white cotton for the rigging, rather than black and brown. Lesson learned :rolleyes:

The sails on "Cutty Sark" have  been straightened out somewhat since the pic was taken.
