My sons Flying Dutchman lego ship with Davy Jones walking the plank. Used a blanket as water and my daughters cloud quilt as the sky. I don't care for the quilt lines in the sky, but can't edit them out in basic.

I predict this one will score about average, maybe around a 5.5 or so.


Whooo Hooo I was wrong :). I spent a lot of time putting this together, mostly spent putting the ship together. I had this idea in mind from the start, just had no pirate duckies so I went to the local party supply store and they had these 4 little guys. Came home and asked my son if I could use his Flying Dutchman ship and he said sure, if I could help him find all the pieces in his toy box and help him put it together. I think we spent a good 2 to 3 hours finding the pieces and putting them together. Once that was done then it was just a matter of getting everything set up.

I'm happy with how this scored, thanks to everyone for your votes and comments. I had a lot of fun doing this challenge.
