One day in mid June 2014 I got the oddest email. It had been forewarded to me by another local New York City ship model builder (Also a member of Model Ship World). A very large media company based in Times Square in Manhattan wanted someone to build a ship in a bottle model in the lobby of their building as part of what I can only describe here as a publicity stunt. They wanted me working in their private lobby every Monday and Tuesday in the month of July for two hours each day. They didn’t care which ship I chose and they were also clear that they didn’t expect a finished model at the end of the month, they just wanted the process of doing it to be visible to their employees and visitors. So naturally I took the job! Here is a photo of the desk they had set up for me in their modern office space.
So the office workers would understand what I was working towards, I brought with me my last Ship in Bottle Model the Carl Vinnan and you can see my build log for her on Model Ship World, I was to use many of the same techniques used on the Vinnan on the Peking.
