Ship includes cannons, crow’s nest, masts, printed sail elements and more. Base includes nameplate and (non-working) compass.
I bought this to put in my office and it immediately was the talk of the job. The build wasn’t too bad except all the clear pieces can be tough to sort through. The ship is constructed first and then placed into the bottle. After reconstructing the boat four times the bricks fall off randomly.The bottle “glass” will fall apart with any real force (touching it or maybe breathing near it).
I bought the lighting to go with this thing. Did not get to use it because everything fell apart. It is really an unusual set, and looks great on display. The ship itself is rather small for a set of this price, but of course the real point is the look with the stand and bottle – which is every bit as awesome as you would expect. A few days later he was back to conquer it.

Other than that though, this is certainly a solid build. All in all a very creative and fun set to build for a very reasonable price!
She really enjoyed it until we got to the clear bottle part. The “water” pieces are fun (you just pour them in) but you don’t get to play much with it in fear of breaking the bottle in half. All in all it was a mostly fun build and the result is definitely attention getting. Place it inside the brick-built bottle, featuring a buildable cork and wax seal. Bottle on stand measures over 3″ (10cm) high, 12” (31cm) wide and 3” (10cm) deep.
