A big time Thanks for the recent replies to the finished Pirate Ship. I was so very glad that my post may be of some help to those yet to make this fine ship or help get past a troublesome issue. One other note, this Ship is wonderfully designed for strength as well as looks of which is a quite impressive detail in itself.

I had some free time so I'd thought I would add 2 pictures of the finishing which is coming along well. I've applied 3 of my expected 4 coats of the Gloss Clear Polyurethane with the 4th being applied late this evening. The Cannons were fine with 2 coats and the Pirates may have to be re-done as the finish on the Redwood I made then from is quite dark now and they look Gloomy along with Scary. 
  I chose using the brush over spray as with the hight heat outside here now I could do the brush application in the basement and also I have better control of runs with the brush whereas I've found with a larger item as this ship I get runs easily with the spray can.
 The wood is finishing in color contrast as I expected and I'm very happy with this build. Thanks one and all for your replies and views. finish2_opt.jpg   finish1_opt.jpg

And this is why i tell people you should never paint hardwood cause the natural colours are beautiful.
I especially like the dark patches on the upper decks.

Hi All
I hate to be a pedant. This boat is short of fore sails (jibs ) and a bowsprit.
It will fill the empty space that exists at the bow and will be more true to a vessel of this type.
I know it is a toy but it looks(to me)unbalanced without the foresails that "balance" the pressure of 
mizzen and main sails.
Cheers
Griff

You are correct in your evaluation. The modifications were made based on the design being for a toy. Thanks for posting!
