My first attempt at building a scale model of a ship

Hi there. If you follow my website you probably know that when I’m building scale models of something I usually engineer a train, a train on tracks, or a train and a train station, full set. I don’t know why, but I really love trains. It doesn’t make sense seeing how I’m a bus drive by day, but trains just relax me. Today I’m going to feature something different and show off a sail boat scale model that I worked on recently.

My first attempt at building a scale model of a ship

So here it is, this is what I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. It’s just a generic old-timey sailboat made from a photo that I found online. I made some changes to the model as I went along, making the parts, but for the most part I kept to the original.

Professionals looking at this photo will probably notice some inconsistencies in design, but to me it doesn’t matter really. This is my first attempt at building something like this, so mistakes are bound to happen. I didn’t really plan on this being an historically accurate model. It was just something for fun. Hope you like it.
