I wanted to say thank you to the folks that helped me with tip and tricks for the pirate ship, as well as the many photo contributers to the site!
My ship turned out great (in my own mind anyway!). It made it to it's destination this morning, a classroom of 5th graders celebrating 'End Of Year' with a pirate theme.
karensue, thank you for the guidance, I hope to ship-build as well as you one day!
Shew, it was a lot of work, but fun and I can't wait to try it again!
I left a comment but I thought I'd give you a bump so others can see your great work!
You did and awesome job! Love the details and the clean work.
