A Collection of miniature ships inside laboratory Vials:


The models are, left to right, a Hansa Kog, a Brigg and a spanish Galleon. The bottles, small long necked laboratory vials. When you work on this kind of "bottles", only feasible tool is a wire, bent according to moment's requirement. Another trick is working with delayed drying cement, since with normal adhesives, components will dry off during the trip along the neck up to the ship. Remember that these models are entirely built from the outside, part by part.
