    Andrus' fine instructables show that he builds very nice ships. His photo's have given me some idea's for making my own modelling easier and better, As well as a ship I need to do in the near future (the Viking Ship) I would refer any one with a serious interest to look into obtaining the books "Modelling Ships in Bottles" by Jack Needham and/or Secrets of Ships in Bottles by Peter Thorne. In addition to Andrus' excellent photojournalism, I recommend both books highly. They give information on the somewhat specialized tools that are needed for this hobby, most of which can be D.I.Y.ed.

    Question 7 months ago on Step 10

    So, how, and at what point, did you make the masts collapsible? That is the whole trick of making a ship in a bottle.

    That looks really neat, I like how you designed the waves to show the water churning around the ship :)
