Hi Everyone!

A group of my friends and I are going to do One Piece characters, and I was batting around the idea of having something for pictures. I ended up deciding I want to try and build the Thousand Sunny, not super big but big enough for a single person to sit in it comfortably for pictures. Obviously there are tons of reference pictures out there of the Sunny so that isn't an issue.

I am most concerned with the materials and actually putting it together. I am moderately handy, have access to any kind of power tool. I just was hoping some other moderatly handy people would open up with some ideas.

Things I know are important.

- The Mast will be detachable.
- It will need to be some kind of durable material (probably actual wood - unless anyone can think of something cheaper) so people can climb in and out of it with out much damage
- Tool suggestions....perhaps....

I really want to do this and if it goes well I hope a lot of people will get to use it....if not then I'm sorry if I got anyone's hopes up. I am also hoping to start soon, so if any disaster does happen I have a ton of time to adjust.

So any help at all is appreciated, and thank you any help given!

to build the thousand sunny, I would suggest a few things. Do you want an easy tear down a put up one? If that's the case then cardboard and paper machete is the best way to go. I would first figure out how much space you would want to have for that one person. Might be a good idea to make it where it's just the front and back of the ship so it looks like you're standing inside it?

Put up and tear down aren't an issue. I'm not worried about effort...and I was thinking of something more parade float like...I am thinking of wheels on the bottom to make travel easier though.
