Hi folks!

My son has almost finished a very nice ship which he has named "Jupiter"

This is where the name comes from:

Given the fact that he is currently 10,5 years old, he's done a great job.

Here is the captain:

... which allows a view of my son's cannon design ("my design" as presented as part of the "Flying Monkey" is actually based on his design).

This weekend he is adding more work (adding sails, etc.) so the whole thing will look a bit different and will evolve over time.

I hope you like this too.

Best wishes from
Captain Braunsfeld (and his family)
Yours,

Captain Braunsfeld

It sure looks very nice! I like the captain fig, and the details. 10.5 years old and being able to build this, it promises a great builder!!

I think you're getting a tough competitor! I really like the canon design, I would like to see the ship with sails and stuff.

Wow, that's a lot better than I could do at his age (or possibly even now)! Keep up the good work and good luck with the rebuild.

It's a nice ship, tell your son I only have two little suggestions.

1. Expand the ship's length, it looks sort of short and funny. Perhaps extend it a little more?

2. A bit too much yellow, it would look better with more black.

Other than that, it's a really awesome ship! Your son has an eye for detail, that cabin looks great! :wink:
