I also find it interesting that you took the time to document the time you spent on it. I assume that you must have kept a paper log book. So, I am wondering what criteria were you using to determine "When" you were actually working on it?
I mean, lets say you are rigging something, and it took an hour for you to figure out how you were going to do something as opposed to it only taking 5 min to actually "Perform" the task?
Current Build: Panart San Felipe 1:75

Since the level of detail a person may add and the availability and amount of research a person may chose to perform will vary with each modeler, the times I show are related to the actual work performed on the vessel. Each person’s ability to read and interpret plans can vary a great detail. Thus, the time reflects only that used to measure the plans for comparison on the vessel or to determine the size of wood used to make a part that is unclear and not listed in the instructions or on the plans separately. Hopefully, by doing this, a person can use this as a guide to determine the level of commitment necessary to compete this type of project or can use it to gauge how far along they are if building the same vessel.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple
