Message in a Bottle

The greatest joy in playing with LEGO bricks is probably what lies in what you have not yet discovered. And so it is exciting when somebody takes a part and sees something that you might have never envisioned to create a new and wonderful MOC.

Matt Armstrong saw the pods from the X-pods series from the middle of this decade and managed to re-engineer them as the bottle to hold a model ship (via The Brothers Brick). His ship in a bottle captures that spirit of reinvention perfectly. The only question is how did he fit that ship inside the bottle, once it was built?
