    I got this note from our backer Kevin Windbigler. He says:

    How about a "create your own package" for the $1000 pledge level? By this, I mean, combining packages from previously offered selections where the total value of the package does not exceed the amount of the pledge. And an admiral to stand on the quarter deck of this fine fleet, painted by the CEO of this project.

    DONE! I have a few sculptors in mind - preferably one that can do a really fancy hat! If Admiral Windbigler puts us over the top, you will all get a free figure of him!

    The Shipwright’s Apprentice: If our current range of ships does not suit your fancy. Work with us to design your own! The ship can measure up to 12” long and 5” wide and mount up to 10 guns. This design does not have to fit into the Napoleonic period so feel free to get creative – within the reasonable constraints of what is possible for our construction methods. Once the design is complete, we will give you three complete kits, and then make the design available to the public with credit to you as a co-designer.
