For my third week entry I went for Islanders  :pir-laugh:
(btw, the poll for this week is up, feel free to vote for me  :pir-grin: )

Anyway, the seed part was a horse hitching.

Thanks,
It seems it takes more time to load the pictures, I now realize how useful brickshelf was to me  :pir-cry_sad:
Hope it gets back soon.

That's really cool! Do you think you would be able to build a larger ship using that technique?

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

(Percy Bysshe Shelley)

Using the horse hitching ? I don't think so, I'm getting back to my flexible tubes to make larger ships, not anything in the near future though,
I got two warships, my Flying Dutchman and an Islanders diorama in the making, it is possible though I make a small pirate sloop to fit in the Islanders dio  :pir-wink:

Very well done!

I love Islanders MOCs, because they are so colourful. Definitely very creative work on the canoe here.

That is actually very cool and great technique! I'd never thought of using the carraige hitch this way. Good luck in the contest!

I can figure what Dey will say when he meets with Hiawatha.

Hiya, Watha!
