SHIPS in BOTTLES by Michel Bardet
I live in the town of Saint-Nazaire,the capital of the shipbuilding (France).
This technique is the one used by former Cape Horn sailors
and lighthouse keepers. Those models are rudimentary, even a little naive,
without too many details. They have big colored pearls (white, black, green or brown),
to represent pulleys, have relatively thick ropes and sails made of paper.
This technique requires a special kinematics for each boat.
It is necessary to put one by one the part of the model inside the bottle.
The setting inside the bottle is a little more difficult.
