Barracuda is a true old seadog; originally a gunner aboard the HMS Falstaf, he soon grew tired of the lack of plunder, and jumped ship in Tortuga, no less. Encountering fierce native tribes and mysterious Eastern seas, he gradually rose to captainhood, as the years grew as long and grey as his hair. A meticulous - if verging on shambolic - type, he is an ept commander, valuing above all his tactical expertise and cunning.
A man of fine taste, his quarters reflect both his character and past - functional and sturdy, but not lacking in glamour or flamboyance where indulged.
Shiver me plastic! She's a beauty! Wow! So many details, and such character in this vignette! Everywhere you look, there's some genius little feature that escaped you on first glance. The seagull technique is awesome, the broken-edge base gives such a great feel to the MOC, and the cannon is by far the best part. I hope you do well in the MOCathalon, and keep up the awesome work!
Your attention to detail here is superb. It is full with character. The shrunken head hanging on the wall gave me a real chuckle. I cannot fault it in relation to the category description. Your presentation is excellent and your build is well crafted and very fine indeed (although I'd love to see some more pics of all the individual items and how he acquired them...). Lots to look at in this build, lots for the eye to explore and each item seems to fit well with the Captain's back-story. 5
