That is really cool, I literally just watched the third movie yesterday and the mini model is quite accurate, the bottle is very clever as well.

Wow, just wow! That bottle is amazing as is the whole idea. And the level of detail on the ship is enormous! It really have to be blogged!

You beat me to it :pir-classic:  Well, that means it's indeed a good MOC.
Your bottle design is excellent. I'd like to see more/different types of ships in a bottle like this.
How about a POTC ship-in-bottle series? Nice job anyway.

The bottle was the first thing I had to do, then it was the pain of designing a ship that would fit in it :)

I'm planning a smaller bottle with a smaller ship (don't know which one yet) but first I have two MOCs to finish for the contetst

Very cool idea to use those transparent blue parts for a bottle. You obviously have thought of every detail, like the cork cap, the chain and the support under the bottle. The Black Pearl is, for it's small size, pretty recognizable as well.

A nice example of pirate-themed MOCs that are not based on normal ships or buildings.

That is one of the more creative MOC I've seen. :pir-classic:
The design of the ship is great for being at such a small scale, and the bottle looks perfect as well.

Thanks for sharing!

This is an awesome idea that was extremely well executed!  The sails in particular look good.  I think that there could have been more chains on the bottle perhaps, the one chain is distracting.  I also don't love the bottle cap.  But, of course overall it is fantastic!  I love it.  I'm a conformist! dude.

I wonder how many of you just slapped yourselves around the face muttering "why didn't I think of that"? :thumbup:
Great concept and pull off brilliantly!

Ooh!! It`s a very original idea! But I think, that the masts are too short.
Great job! :thumbup:

I don't think so. If he'd made them taller they wouldn't fit in the bottle :pir-tongue:

Yes, but he could have made the hull thinner. :pir-blush:

Great! The blue looks a bit strange though. A clear bottle would be nice, but if those pieces aren't available, then blue is okay.
Still, very nice. It'd be great to have on display. :classic:
