    I just thought I would post this.
    It was a one hour challenge.
    The challenge was to make a boat and to put it in a car brake light bulb in an hour.
    I done this some years ago to raise some money for a charity.
    I did the challenge and raise Β£175.00 pounds.
    It is not that good but for one hour of my time it was worth it.

    Hi Jb,
    I was a little bit younger, thinner, and had a bit more hair on my head.
    A friend I know has but a ship in a bicycle light bulb, but it took him a lot longer than one hour.
    He used a microscope,tweezers and a small piece of a scalpel blade to calve out the hull and superstructure.
    He also fitted guns.
    I must see if I can contact him and get some photos.

    As usual you astound us all Martin - that's really a good one- how did you get the glass out without breaking ?
    The closest I ever came was one of those huge 150w light-bulbs which you cant even get nowadays. Glass part fell out so thought I might have a go at ship in a bulb - fortunately the glass was dropped when the house was being cleaned - shattered before I started and let me off the hook...........

    Hi Red,
    It was a bit tricky but with gentle persuasion and a jewellers screwdriver, and a bit of twisting it came apart.
    What made the challenge worse was that you had a lot if people watching. so the magic that searing normal gives you was not allowed.LOL!
