Quite a nice ship you've got there, radar  *y*  The masts and sails look very nice on such a thin ship, and the colours are attractive too. Good job  :-)

Thanks.   The blue bow peice made it a bit tricky, but it worked out.

8-  Brilliant entry, Fat Tony! The whole look of the thing is great, with the bones and ladders. The skeleton cage is fantastic  *wub*  Very original idea going with islanders over the typical imperial/pirate ships

Great work  *wub*

Fat Tony- There's so much I love about your entry. It's so well built and wonderfully creative, but my absolute favorite part is the Mr. Krabs head for the masthead.  *y*  *y*  *y*

Indeed, it won't be easy with so many fine ships.

I hope that once the contest is over, some of these ships get a dedicated topic in the forum so we can have some detailed discussions.
The latest entry (Fat Tony) certainly deserves one.

Errr... is this a one off ruling? In other words, can I replicate one of this pieces from similar pieces so I can do an entry?
No, I can't. I just looked into it and the slope angle was different to what I expected. I could do one piece similar... but not if I stacked them. I'll have to sit out this one as well it seems.  :'-( I'll have to get some of these pieces later as they look to be pretty usefull!  *wub* On to the entries!

Captain green hair As always, I love the rigging on this ship. It's stunningly well armed too!  :-P
Bonaparte This is my clear favourite.  *wub* It's such a great idea, one which I wouldn't have thought would work so well at that scale. The photography is great too!
Matn Cool ship! The handrails are a nice touch.
pietje When I first saw this I thought it was a Fabuland entry!  :-D It's very aptly named.  X-D
phred ...and I thought Captain green hair's entry was well armed!  :-P Are you sure that this wouldn't just keel over when it fires?  8-| Eitherway, this is another extreamly detailed and well rigged little ship. Having the carronades on sliders is a nice touch, and it takes advantage of the hull width. ...Oh... I just noticed that your steering works.... 8-
Piranha This is rubbish... no sorry, it's a junk. :hmpf: Sorry, bad joke.  :-$ Your crew are a funny lot! I like the figurehead too.
AgentRick57 Great sails!
SlyOwl You're a smarty pants!  :-D Very smart hull design!
Captain Ka-Boom That's a big crew for a small ship! Where do they all sleep?
Hinckley As always, your details are beautiful. The curves in the stern in particular are very interesting. I like how you made the sides.
TinyPiesRUs The figure head of yours is really cool. I love the details like the roomy captains cabin and the stairs to below decks.
radar92 The colour scheme of this works really well.
Fat Tony You make such great things! I was planning on making a similar hull... but not similar details!  :-D This is such a cool entry. The bone cage is wonderful!

The enties in the contest are really good! Great work everyone!  *sweet*

@AUDI.TW:

Nice entry. Very inspiring! I think I might try something like that myself.
Very impressive to build a ship like this on that hull-type.
I think Hairy Ruben had a similar idea but I haven't seen his entry yet.

No, and you sadly never will. David's been receiving packages of ordered lego and has subsequently been dismantling/demoloshing anything that has useful parts. So bye bye entry :'-(

In any case, I've been working on another project for some time now that I shall unveil soon, I hope. It hasn't got anything to do with sailing ships though. :-/  ;-)
