Ships in bottles

I came across the above short video last week. It's about an Australian gentleman whose hobby is building model ships and bottling them. It immediately reminded me of the film Steady As She Goes produced by the National Film Board of Canada back in '81 or '82. It's one of my favourite model building oriented movies, and somewhere around this house I have it on VHS tape. I must apologize in advance for the SnagFilms source because it has 4 obnoxious ads for Windows 8 jammed into it (there don't appear to be any unaltered versions on the web) which disturb the vibe of the film. But even those ads can't wreck it, and both of these make for a half-hour of pleasant viewing.
