    Chicken Of The Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant Model

    The latest piece turned out of the Nautilus workshop...

    The model company Revell produces a plastic model kit called the “Caribbean Pirate Ship, Jolly Roger” based on the old Chicken of the Sea restaurant ship at Disneyland. It is surprising accurate to the real thing except for the entrance and exit doorways. So I bought the ship, put it together, and all I had to do was paint it differently and make the sails. Someday I want to make Skull Rock to go with and put it in a “lagoon”. This ship is loaded with detail. As Mary Poppins would say it's "practically perfect in every way".

    So here is my “Chicken Of The Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant” in miniature!









    You could almost smell the tuna sandwiches...









    To give you some sense of scale...



    If you want to buy the model kit that I bought , here’s the link...

    That is way cool. I checked out the site and the price is not bad at all. A lot of painting you did and very nice looking. I am thinking about this. It's really cool.

    The price is extremely good, one of the reasons why I bought it!

    That is sooooo totally cool!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Unbelievable! Great work, Sam. You may have been the first to recognize the kit for what it really is!

    Another thought: A fairly frequent topic on these boards is "How does one become an Imagineer?" Lots of advice is usually offered: Study hard; take engineering courses; know someone.

    All great advice. But here we have a 15-year-old kid building an actual portfolio.

    Ask what the orignal Imagineers brought to the table when they applied for the job...

    It is perfect in every way! Great job. Like others, when I was a kid we would always go there to eat. Of course I went there to visit with Peter Pan and Captain Hook!

    I LOVE the job you did! Splendiferous!
    You really nailed it with the paint job. That thing is so TINY and you really got in there and did it right.

    I love the customized stand you made, too!

    That is great! I can almost smell the tuna sandwiches! I love the detail of the deck. I it brings back fond memories of running all over that ship.

    What a great job. I loved that ship and those tuna fish sandwiches were the best. It was also a great place to watch the fireworks from.
