I know what you mean Tony.......I'm getting tired of it though. I've done "rough service" all my life........time to find a nice quiet job.......like building boats!
:text-lol:


thank you Chailai......this is another Billing Boats kit. I like them a lot....they're fun to build....and you can add to them easily. I put quite a bit into this one {I still think I went a little overboard with it}........fishing boats are easy to "dress up"....unlike sailing ships, especially replica builds....they give you a very narrow window to work with. thanks for looking in.......glad you like it.
