Thank you for visiting THE Ship In a Bottle web site.

Please view our photo gallery.  If you would like clarification on any of the pictures, shoot me an email and I'll get back with you!

I've included some family shots.  One of my regrets is that I did not take more pictures of projects along the way.  That is why I decided to include a photo journal with every custom made ship model built for you, my customer!
