Bottled Ship Builder

Three mast barque. Leon labistours book.


Recommended Posts

It's definitely not the best most of you guys have seen or done! ha. But this is my third ship and second bottled. It was a massive learning curve!! The bottle was so tight to work with! But personally it looks better the tighter the squeeze! I made alot of mistakes and cursed quite abit too, obviously all part of learning!! It's all done by hand as the book suggests and as I would prefer. Here's the pics in order I hope...

Thanks onni! Agree with you, next one I will give it a go with more detail. I must've attempted to carve the Hull about 5 times before i got it right and I scrapped a set of masts on it aswell. The begginers model which is the same except one mast less was a bit of a disaster, hence didn't get bottled but I could practice putting inside bottles to get an idea.

Thanks mick! 

Yeah you're right it does have quite a thick base on it, I got it from the lidl supermarket. Its their brand called hortus gin (70cl). I'm looking into finding similar bottles as the first sib I did was done in the same style bottle aswell but it was a 20cl (port bottle I saved from Christmas). 

Cheers

Hi robjames, great looking sib, Nicely done! If your looking for another gin bottle then this one from sainsbury is pretty good and has a good size neck width and  is the only one I’ve found of this shape that has the least thick base! Only draw back is the screw cap, but you can trim down regular corks to fit and then wrap round cord to cover the screw thread. Only other draw back is it’s £16 a bottle and I don’t like gin! So I buy it for my mum and dad and it comes back to me a week later empty and cleaned!😂

Thankyou James! 

Haha bet your parents enjoy that! Mine would too but sadly for them I like gin! Next time I'm near or in sainsburys I will nip in! Cheers for the heads up! I ordered a few empty bottles from a malt whisky website and the clarity was loads better but sadly they was longer instead of wider if you know what I mean, will still make use of them though eventually. 

Cheers 

Rob
