Hello friends,
I've posted on my blog updates on my project of changing a cheapo birdhouse pirate ship art project into a ship for wargaming.I think it's pretty much done, but I'm always happy to hear ideas and suggestions.


Here's the post: link

A fun project. And for thse of us that might like to give it a try (for our teddy bear p;irates), what is the name of the company that makes the kit?

@ StoneMtnMinis, no problem, I'd love to see someone else's take on this project. For the rest of you, as always I appreciate the kind words. I've been painting my cardboard ships as well and I look forward to sharing my progress on those in the near future.
