Tubjugger Posted April 18, 2015 Report Share Posted April 18, 2015 Inserting a model into the bottle is perhaps the riskiest part of the process, at least in my experience. A complicated umbrella method model with a full suit of sails and dozens of control lines can be a real terror to send down the neck, and the sound of something crunching or cracking can break your heart, along with causing hours of extra work. A simple solution which has saved me lots of fear and trepidation is to cut a piece of metal out of an alumum can to about the length of the model, and of a width slightly greater than the inside circumference of the bottle's neck. The model is wrapped carefully in the metal piece, compressing it uniformy, and the whole thing inserted through the neck. Once inside the bottle, the aluminum will spring open, and may be easly extracted with a hooked piece of wire, and saved for use on the next model.
