His creation reached the qualifying 10,000 votes with LEGO Ideas.

Display stand features the ship’s ‘Leviathan’ nameplate, a built-in ‘compass’ (non-functioning) with detailed compass rose and spinning gold-colored needle, 2 globe elements and gold-colored detailing.
Includes a booklet with building instructions, plus information about the set’s fan creator Jake Sadovich and LEGO® designers.

Interesting setI really enjoyed building this set. Building the bottom on the bottle was intriguing. The visual effect is excellent with this set. When I first saw this set I thought it was perfect to go along with the Old Fishing Store Set. I have both in my office. I do agree with other reviews that the ship is small, but I can understand why; the size of the bottle in proportion to the ship.
I have one complaint about this set. It is not very sturdy. In my opinion, this set is not intended to be played with, unless you take the ship out of the bottle. Moving the set requires rebuilding the set (personal experience - multiple rebuilds). The neck of the bottle becomes detached very easily.

So lovely, so uniqueI really love this Lego set. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted it. At £70, it does seem expensive but when it's built, it's worth every penny. The bottle has some lovely touches. I have never seen so many clear bricks in one set and the designers have done a great job getting new bricks in this set. I love the "cork", the ship, though small is perfectly formed and the stand is class. It now has pride of place in my lounge, for now. My son is jealous and we both hope for versions of other famous ships in the future. Thank you to the original Lego fan who designed it and the Lego designer who made it possible.

Excellent DisplayThis set is a great as a home display, with these colourful bricks the building is amazing and so much fun.
The only cons I find the price in Canadian $is a little bit high, and the designer could have merged two pieces of WALL ELEMENT 1X4X3 Element 4594686 to form a big piece WALL ELEMENT 1X4X6 this would make the ship more visible.

Please display me!This has got to be one of the coolest things Lego has done in awhile or maybe even ever. With an almost 1:1 scale for size the bottle alone is really cool and if you ask me the star attraction. Getting a huge number of translucent pieces is always fun but once you finish the bottle you just stop and appreciate how close it looks to an actual bottle. During building however you will need extreme patience, in order to create a purposely non-see through bottom like most bottles, you will be assembling tons of 1x1 and 2x2 plates that have a flimsy build up until you finish the actual bottle itself that can get very frustrating during assembly, but don’t let it frustrate you, the end product is worth it I promise. The details and building techniques that went into this are clever and at some points very simple and lead to a refreshingly challenging build that has a look unlike anything you’ve seen, if you or a person you know are a Lego enthusiast and nautical enthusiast this is a must buy set that proudly displays itself wherever you may place it. Oh and did I mention this set has one of the funniest instructions I’ve seen in a Lego booklet. It instructs you to literally dump the 284!!! Translucent blue studs into the bottle which give the end product a really nice look. If you like to display Lego models this is the one for you!
