    I didn’t think this would be as small and intricate as it is. You will need tweezers and a tiny glue dispenser to put this together. My 8 year old son lost interest pretty fast.

  2. Sonja

    My grandpa loved it. Thank you

  3. Troy

    I’d like to see a ship in bottle kit with sails!

  4. Laura Current

    Bought for husband. He is very excited to build this wooden ship the model itself small

    I got this as a gift for someone who mentioned they always wanted to do one. I think he’ll enjoy it. It was delivered quickly. We shall see what he thinks about it on Christmas. It looks challenging but fun.

    Quick Overview (details below):
    This is a very incomplete kit with poor instructions and one major flaw – the ship hull is much to long for the provided bottle. The only way you would catch this is building it the 2nd time. As it was, I had to go out and buy a new bottle to fit my completed boat.

    Detailed positive:
    The hull provided is a very nice start to the project. Nothing else in the kit is worth bragging on.

    Detailed Criticisms:
    As mentioned above, the major flaw is a combination of mismatched parts terrible instructions not warning you that the hull as shipped is way too long after you have added the rigging on.
    There are many things you will need to complete: a very special set of micro drill bits, paint (3-4 colors of testers oil), multiple kinds of glues, paper for sails, hobby knife, scissors, straight edge, cutting mat, brushes, bamboo skewers, thread, sandpaper and epoxy or plactacine/clay for water for boat to sit in. Additionally I used some double stick tape and custom made some tools as prodders, adjuster, pokers and applicators once the boat was finally in the bottle.
    Finally, the instructions tell you to rig it in a way that the sails CANNOT COLAPSE. It’s like someone sat down and wrote the directions as a theory and not actually applied to the real world. Many mistakes and very misleading steps combined with terrible illustrations make this kit very difficult to be successful with. I made the model in spite of the kit. Not because of it.

    Took me 25 hrs to complete.

    I have built a number of wooden ship models over the years, some requiring several hundred hours of work. One of my godson’s kids is really intrigued by these models and has been begging me to show him how to make a ship-in-a-bottle. Building the real thing is way beyond the attention span of a six-year-old, but then I saw this kit.

    I’m pretty sure it is beyond the capability of a young kid, but I think we will be able to build it together. It’s quite simple and just needs a bit of a steady hand, some glue, and some paint.

    I can’t attest to the actual ease of assembly since we haven’t done it yet and he won’t be visiting again for a while. But it looks quite easy. When he does visit, we will set to a’building and a’bottling and I will provide an updated review (with pics!).

    In the meantime, I think I can reasonably give this a five star rating just based on what I’ve seen.

    I wanted to build a ship in a bottle and there were no other choices but this one on Amazon. This is VERY tiny so make sure you have proper tools to use, for example, a tool that can cut a hole through a toothpick. I would also suggest finding an instant bonding glue because the pieces are so tiny and difficult to hold and wait for glue to dry. I lose patience after working on it for a while, so it is not complete yet.

    Pretty small bottle I’d say the size of a mason jar
