HMS Victory with a set of redundant British Airways tail fins - urghhh! Kiss me Hardy!

As far as the 'artist's' hair is concerned maybe they are supposed to be slow matches.

Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

The trouble with artists is that they feel the need to be artistic.  Still, "ShiP in a bottle".  Its only a small typo.

The master looks down from his column, unmoved and in stony faced silence... hmmm, I think thats exactly how he would view this 'creation were he still alive. Olidron, you got it about right methinks.
As for the hair, take note you kids out there... never ever tamper with those mains outlet sockets!!

The ship itself looks good but.......those sails  :o Perhaps you're right, Colin, that's where the artwork of the BA tails went.

As for the "artist's" hair, how does he keep his head on the pillow at night, it must keep springing up off it  {-)
