My first attempt at a sailing ship from scratch. I used a plastic model i have as the model for it but did not add all the details as i don’t have any way to make some of the parts.
I did not add sails as i did not know how my 3 and 5 year old grands sons would handle the ship. At any rate i needed something light to do while recovering from surgery and hospitlal visits and making the ship kept my mind busy.

Looking very shipshape and Bristol fashion.

You have lucky grandkids!

Oh this is sweet… and its something I know I’d never want to attempt due to patience! That took you some time! Plus I dont think my fat fingers could do all the rope!!! But awesome job as usual!
