    How do people make ships in a bottle? I’ve seen them and I’ve heard people have hobbies making them but I’ve alway been confused how it’s done 1CCC661A-6068-4A47-8BB5-6269009C2AD6.jpeg 8A8F5A78-A920-4FCC-836B-55D49BE90BD6.jpeg

    I think they build bit by bit like a real ship, starting from the base with some sticks/pincer and use some glues. Because unlike real life, the nails are probably an issue for ship building inside a bottle so i think glues are used instead.

    There are two ways to place a model ship inside of a bottle. The simpler way is to rig of the ship and raise it up when the ship is inside the bottle. Masts, spars, and sails are built separately and then attached to the hull of the ship with strings and hinges so the masts can lie flat against the deck. The ship is then placed inside the bottle and the masts are pulled up using the strings attached to the masts. The hull of the ship must still be able to fit through the opening. Bottles with minor distortions and soft tints are often chosen to hide the small details of the ship such as hinges on the masts. Alternatively, with specialized long-handled tools, it is possible to build the entire ship inside the bottle.
