Boris Unveils his Big Ship in a bottle

Just happened to be passing through Trafalgar Square yesterday, and came across a crowd witnessing the unveiling of the Nelson’s Big Ship in a Bottle. Boris made an historic speech and proceeded to unveil the latest piece of art to grace the square. Of course the big sheet go stuck and some guy had to scramble up the side to release it, but when it finally appeared the crowd seemed fairly impressed. I have always wondered how they get those things in the bottle without breaking them, but how do make a bottle that big?
