This is one of my latest attempts
Had to adapt plans to suit available timber - only had 3/4 inch pine and some 1/4 inch tulipwood and mahogany panels - used wheels on the masts
I like the natural wood look - truth is I hate painting !! SANY1376_opt.jpg

nicely done Alan.

About how long did it take you to cut and assemble this?. Just curious

Hi Alan

This is very good work on your pirate ship, it looks great.
I like the wheels for the crows nest.

Good job, can you post some more pictures of this ship?  Would love to see more.

This is awesome!!!  It looks great natural with the little bits of mahogany to add some variety.  And I agree, painting is very tedious.

Great work Alan. I too love the natural wood. 
I have this plan, just need to find the time to make it. Thanks for the tip with the wheels on the masts, I was wondering how I was going to make these bits. 

Cheers
