qwerty2008 Posted April 30, 2013 Share #1 Posted April 30, 2013 I am officially hooked on ships in bottles (they make excellent mini builds) so when I found a small vase at the 99 cent only store I had to get one and put a boat/ship in it. I decided to build a cutter because it would fit perfectly. First I carved the hull from a piece of balsa that I had laying around. I painted it then remembered that I forgot to make the bulwarks so I made them then I made the mast from a bamboo toothpick. I repainted the model then wile the paint was drying I made the cannons. The cannons were made by first cutting short lengths of brass (plaited) wire then cutting out small squares of heavy card then folding them into a U shape finally I dipped the wire in white glue and placed them in the U shaped pieces of paper.
