There is an amazing amount of detail in this small vessel. You think that ships are simple and that not much is needed to make them function until you have to build all the little details. Nice work.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

thanks Gary.........I'm finding things I probably should have done differently, but I able to work around them, so all is good. I've done quite a bit more to this model......I still have to write the logs. at the moment, I'm working on the fish box.....it's coming out better than I expected.

I'll try and post them soon. thanks for the kind comment and for look'in in :D

I've made a bunch more progress on this project. the mid ship became pretty complex......I added a lot of extra stuff. originally, I was going to keep it simple, but one thing led to another........and before you know it. oh well......I had fun doing it, and that's what counts ;-)

hello there.......just me. I'm a bit behind, but this will catch things up. I've always considered the month of February to be nothing more than 28 days of hell.........and this year is no exception. I have been ill a few times, and life continues to get in the way.....but I have managed to make time at the table. I've made some great progress.
