Battleship Yamato Model Made with Wine Bottles and Corks

Twitter user @belcorno is perhaps best known for his work as a latte artist. We've previously featured his colorful work in that medium. But over the summer, he embarked on a new artistic journey by creating this model of the World War II-era warship Yamato--the largest battleship ever built--using bottles, corks, kite strings, and toothpicks.

The Yamato is the central figure in a long-running anime franchise called Space Battleship Yamato. In it, the sunken warship is converted into a spaceship and sent into battle against alien invaders.

But because of the cables that @belcorno places between the bow, the stern, and the mast, I suspect that his work specifically refers to the real-life seagoing vessel.
