I built this in 1954 soon after getting discharged from the Navy.  This was my first attempt at ship modeling.

the ship was rigged before installing into the bottle then once set in the clay the masts and sails were raised by using the rigging. I built a special  tool for reaching inside the bottle from scrap. It is a little bit ugly but did the job.
