It is finally finished. The ghost ship sails away. All the wood work and sail work and rigging and even the forgotten archor are all done.
As I mentioned previously, there were no plans/instructions, and therefore all mast and boom and yard measurements are made up to look proportionately correct first against the hull, and then against the masts and remaining space.
Now it is time to get a parrot and a peg leg and set sail for the high seas.  Aargh...

Wooden Model Two-Masted Ship

I have no name or even scale for this model. I bought it from AliExpress for a mere $12 shipping included. It arrived in two weeks. Today is day eleven (11) of the build. There are two basic problems: 1) there were no plans/instructions; and 2) the wood is plywood instead of solid single type wood. You can only bend plywood in one direction. So this has been a bit of a challenge. The goal here is to make a ghost ship or sort of disney pirates vessels with a lot of crud and dirt and aging. Hull crud is baking soda and crushed pencil shavings. The entire thing has been spray painted with a dirty black, then sanded down to show highlights.
