DANMARK ship in a bottle (with Video)
I left the centre clear as I wanted to glue in a platform upon which I would glue the lower hull. This would provide me with the rigidity to assemble the ship inside the bottle and pull the rigging lines without the hull moving.
I mixed some more “epoxy plasticine” to coat the glass base and then glued some wood to the required height using pure epoxy.
The lower hull was now inserted into the bottle and the rigging lines positioned out of the way and covered to prevent any glue touching them. 24hr epoxy was applied to the mounting platform and the lower hull placed in position. A simple “T” was made from scrap wood and used to level the hull fore and aft and side to side.
