The cat would look good too on the deck somewhere.

 :)
That reminds me, I have some black cat stickers that I used on the custom monster playset. I may try to work one in on the deck.  cl:)

Here are a couple of good non-obscured pictures of horrorhunter's Haunted Hulk:





Here in horrorhunter's own words is how he cobbled it together starting with the original hull from a Haunted Hulk he had as a kid:

Quote from: horrorhunter
The hull is from the original Haunted Hulk my parents bought me at the age of 5 in 1964. The sail, skull standard, and spiderweb rigging are original pieces I luckily purchased in a rare eBay lot. The stickers are repros that I convinced an eBay seller to make for resale (he still sells sets of them). The wheel is from an MPC pirate ship (identical to the HH wheel except it isn't green). The set of 8 Weird Monsters are my originals from childhood.

Here are two really good non-obscured pictures of the custom "Ghost Galleon" vessel that horrorhunter cobbled together:





Here in his own words he describes how he put it together:

Quote from: horrorhunter
This is just a custom Haunted Hulk I put together using a repopped MPC pirate ship. The monsters, however, are original '60s MPC Weird Monsters. The skulls on the hull are buttons that I finally found after a long search. The skulls are attached by running wires and toothpicks through the holes.
