HMS Pickle by kapiteinhadock - BOTTLE

Recommended Posts

When I was cleaning on my vessel I found an old big light bulb. As I love the ships in bottles I thought it would be nice to put a little ship in there. As the entrance is not that small as a bottle it is a nice exercise before I start with a real bottle.




I made a little waterline hull from wood and made some bulwarks from a sea chart which is a nice and strong paper.



I made a stand to hold the model and drilled holes for the gun ports. These are squared with a little key file. The bowsprit is made from sanded down tooth picks. I made the gunwales of a suture kit which contains very fine silk thread (you can still see the needle on the end of the thread).



And I painted the lower part off the hull.
