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.

Tks,

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!
