    Hi there!
    Excellent! The "conversion" is very clever. However, I wouldn't have had him on board a ship, but rather inside a tavern...:p;)
    Great work.

    Thanks lads for your comments ,as they're much appreciated ,as i get more of a buzz with comments from my peers than any medals i've won.
    I've often wondered where the saying "3 sheets to the wind "came from so i had to find out.The sheets are at the bottom corners of the sails which when not tied down properly the sail will flap about drunkenly hence the saying.One sheet to the wind -a bit tiddly ,2 sheets to the wind-fairly drunk,3 sheets to the wind-totally off your face,bladdered.Don't worry Olivier as he's just about to be" put in the scupper with the hosepipe on him".

    I see this "old salt", has changed the capsizing of the ocean by rum. Great transformation. I´ve this kit, but I´m going to paint it with the rudder.
    I also like your choice.
