    Ship in light bulb

    I am very interesting in ship in bottle and ship in light bulb. I have some pictures about ship in light bulb here and i am very happy to show it for you. Firstly, I think someone bisect the light bulb then he put a ship inside and join 2 part of the light bulb. But, when I have it in my hand, i am amaze and i know that is not the thrust. Maybe the worker put every part of the ship into the light bulb and then raise the ship... Let's enjoy

    These ships are made outside the light globe with collapsible sails and masts, they are then inserted into the globe through the end where the power componentry goes, the sails and masts are then up-righted using cotton 'ropes' that are still attached. The ends of the cotton are tied off when the masts and sails are in place and the power componentry part of the globe its only then fitted.

    They are well done when you consider the size of a globe
