You are never too old to play with Lego. The Ship in a Bottle set is based on a concept by ardent lego fan, Jake Sadovich, which he submitted to the toy manufacturer in November 2016. It has 962 pieces and will give you hours of undiluted fun if you enjoy putting a puzzle together. The 962 pieces include 280 translucent-blue, water style elements and the entire set is incredibly detailed. It comprises a ship with a raised deck at the stern, captain’s quarters, 6 canons, 3 masts, a crow’s nest, printed sails and even a ship’s flag. There is a detailed, buildable cork with a stopper having a wax seal. The ship sports a ‘leviathan’ nameplate, a built-in ‘compass’, 2 Globe elements that actually spin and gold-colored detailing.
As in the case of every Lego set, there is a booklet with straightforward building instructions about the 167 steps needed to complete the build, and additional information about the set’s fan creator and lego designers. The first step is to build the ship. The challenging bit, however, is to build the bottle, which is a bit complex to put together but the end result is beautiful. The final step is the display stand. For each step, there is a nice mix of techniques.
The outcome once you have finished building the set is a Lego model that you would be proud to display in your showcase, if you have one or on your desk at the office.
