This video tutorial shows you a step by step guide for making a model pop pop ( put put ) boat from an empty coca cola can, a juice carton, 2 straws and some blu-tack. Easy and great fun idea to make with kids. Use an Epoxy glue rather then blu-tack to make the boiler stronger and last longer.

When flipped, most of the buoyancy for the platform is provided by water at depths below the influence of surface waves, hence FLIP is a stable platform mostly immune to wave action, like a spar buoy. At the end of a mission, compressed air is pumped into the ballast tanks in the flooded section and the vessel returns to its horizontal position so it can be towed to a new location.The ship is frequently mistaken for a capsized ocean transport ship FLIP is designed to study wave height, acoustic signals, water temperature and density, and for the collection of meteorological data. Because of the potential interference with the acoustic instruments, FLIP has no engines or other means of propulsion. It must be towed to open water, where it drifts freely or is anchored. In tow, FLIP can reach speeds of 7--10 knots. FLIP weighs 700 long tons (711 tonnes) and carries a crew of five, plus up to eleven scientists. It is capable of operating independently during month-long missions without resupply,being able to operate worldwide but the normal area is the west coast of the United States. The vessel operates out of a home base at the Scripps Nimitz Marine Facility in San Diego, California.

How I Make a Ship in a Bottle.
This is the traditional method. The model is NOT built INSIDE the bottle, it is built outside the bottle and of a size that can JUST BEARLY FIT into the neck of the bottle with the masts folded over. The masts are hinged to fold, and the rigging of the masts extends outside of the bottle and can be pulled from outside.The sails are not glued to this example model, but they are made of paper and glued to the masts and flex and bend enough to make it through the neck of the bottle too.
