About 2 years ago i convinced myself I needed a wooden "Bluenose" kit. I did all my research, found that the Model Slipways kit was the way to go and eventually got one through ebay. It sits at the bottom of the stash. I darent take the sticks out of the box cos I'll never get them in again! I keep telling myself its a post retirement gig, but the skill and craftsmanship required to emulate real life ship building planking is quite daunting.. I'll probably end up selling it.
