Putting a ship into a bottle is probably one of the most fascinating models it is possible to make and has intrigued people down the centuries. Secrets of Ships in Bottles, a maritime modelling classic originally published in 1960, explains in easy-to-follow instructions the methods and procedures involved. This completely updated edition includes new chapters including one on making a model of the famous Kon Tiki raft sailed by Thor Heyerdahl. It is fully illustrated with photographs and line drawings by the author, artist and illustrator Peter Thorne.

The book suggests variations to the ship models actually shown in the book, such as five-masted schooner or a single-masted cutter; these would be based on the reader's own appreciation of maritime history. Also included in this edition is a detailed description and illustrations showing you how to carve and French polish a 'dolphin-like' fish - an ideal gift for an admiring beholder, perhaps?

Peter Thorne has worked with various mediums but has found wood to be one of the most satisfying and rewarding. Not only will you get pleasure from making your own ship-in-a-bottle model or wood carving, but also a great deal of achievement. If you really get hooked, you will want to make both!
