Did you know the UK’s largest ship in a bottle is found in Greenwich?

The ship, which is a detailed, scaled-down replica of Nelson's HMS Victory created by Turner Prize nominee Yinka Shonibare, is on permanent display at the National Maritime Museum.

It made the ideal backdrop for the launch of a new Lego version of the ship in a bottle.

Available now, the design created by Lego fan designer Jake Sadovich was inspired by an actual ship in a bottle he built a few years ago.

The 962-piece model comes complete with an intricately designed ship, grandly named Leviathan.

The ship features a multitude of traditional nautical elements including decorated compass, a captain’s quarters, six cannons, three masts, a crow’s nest, a raised deck at the stern, printed sails and the ship’s own flag.

Measuring more than 10cm high, 31cm wide and 10cm deep, the Lego model includes a buildable cork with a wax seal-style element, and more than 280 translucent-blue water elements inside.

The model is available from Lego stores and at www.shop.lego.com/Shipinabottle priced £69.99.
