Mast construction...

I worked on both the forward and aft masts late last week. It was quite a finicky business making the masts, and now that they are installed up on Deck 8 I have to be extra-careful I don't knock them over when I'm working on other parts of the ship!

Pieces of cardboard which will become the forward mast.

Toothpicks form the skeleton of the upper part of the mast.
