Bottled Ship Builder

Saying hello


Recommended Posts

Just recently found the forum and thought I would join. 40 years ago, whilst a radio officer in the merchant navy, I decided to try my hand at ships in bottles. I had little in the way of tools and supplies, but had time on my hands. After a small ketch in a round bottle, I moved on to the Cutty Sark, following the plans from a small book that I had bought. I recorded my hours to make the ship and its stand - 75 hours. Due to several house moves over the years, the two lifeboats have become detached from the cabin top and can be seen at the rear of the bottle. Now that I'm retired I hope to have another go at the craft.
