This model ship was built by my late-Godfather.  He loved to build models of all sorts, and he would completely craft everything himself whenever possible.  This model stands about two and a half feet tall and it’s absolutely amazing!  Whenever I’m at my Mom’s house I enjoy looking at it, not just for the beauty but for the memory of my Godfather as well.  And the name always makes me laugh too ’cause it’s a not-nice nickname he had for my Mama *she’s his big sister*    And that reminds me of him too.  tee, hee.
