CharlieB Posted May 2, 2015 Report Share Posted May 2, 2015 I started my latest sib about 2 monyhs ago, but at that time didn't have a bottle for it. Finally found a bottle in my bar last week. Eyeballing the two together looked like everything should be fine. Was I wrong! While waiting for a delivery of plasticine, I did a trial fit, but never tried to raise the masts. Wednesday was the day I thought I'd finally finish this project. Inserted a thin (3/16") sea, gouged out a spot for the ship, added a little glue and inserted the ship. The masts were about 3/16" too long. I was able to salvage the ship, but lost the bottle (got glue all over the neck) while removing the ship. Looking for another ship to build and a slightly larger bottle! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
