Bottled Ship Builder

my first ship in a bottle


Recommended Posts

Hi, I joined the forum last January to get hints about putting a ship in a bottle. I have plans of the Duyfken, a little ship who sailed to Australia with Dutch explorers in the early 1600. I visited the replica a few years before and had that project in my head since. I am quite happy with it, although it's far from being at the level of some of the masterpieces I have seen on this forum. I do a bit of small wood carving and I decided to carve the Duyfken out of a piece of boxwood. It has been a long learning road with many challenges, the masts, the rigging, the planking, the painting, the sails and the sea which I made out of fimo, until I had a go at launching it yesterday. Cheers!
