Very nice... but how did you put the ship in through such a small opening? Especially the second one?!

I'm glad you love it!

In fact .the second one is easy than the first one. Because the second ship only got one mast . but the first ship got three mast.

First I made a hull. secondly drill some hole( used to fix the mast) . than put the hull into the bottle.
at last,use a Tweezer to clamp the mast, let the root of the mast into the pre drilled holes.
adjust the appearance carefully.
If you got paint .you can paint it .I think it will be more beautiful.

My English is not good. If I made some mistakes , you don't understand what i say, you can say. I will correct as soon as possible.

I hope this can help you.

Pssst, that is where the SKILL comes in...you have to build it INSIDE the bottle :-)

I searched and saw a few that "cheated" and removed part of the bottle to allow insertion.

The one I had at one time was a small glass bottle, and was HANDMADE and believe me, no one cut the bottlem of this bottle off.  It was constructed carefully, like those miniature pieces done here....(scroll down to them, they are amazing); inside the bottle.

I work in small scale, but some of those are ridiculous (but awesome)

Same here, I once had a really tiny bottle with a ship in it....I think it got flushed down the toilet while I still lived at home though (I didn't do it ! )
