Would doing this be more rewarding if you didn't look at it as a 'model', but more as you were building an actual ship ?The current situation has me building my first wood ship model, a large New England lobster boat, maddening and very satisfying at the same time.
I’m looking for something because what I always end up doing is around 6:30 I bet the couch and just watch tv till 9:30 or so (and surf the internet at the same time) and just snack. Probables is, I’m tired by then. I’ve worked all day, I’ve worked out, I’ve eaten supper. And then I just want to let down and kind of veg out.
But I’d like a hobby where I won’t just sit and eat after dinner. Thought about building models, but I haven’t done that since I was like 10 or something. Not I’d like it. I can draw, but not sure I’d like that either. And like I said, I’m usually tired by then.
Right now it is a pile of nicely sanded wood frames, bulkheads and stringers. Final cutting and prep of the partially die cut parts is extremely time consuming, but key to the finished boat.We need pictures.
This looks amazing. I am jealous! I have never had a slot raceway close enough to me, the nearest one now is 1.5 hours away.Being an indoors guy myself and having a mind that is always busy, 30 years ago sitting on a coach drinking my favorite brew and watching tv with a buddy of mine. while during a commercial and add came on for a local shop advertising Slot Car Racing. Long story short he looked at me "said hey I have a slot cars from when my dad used to take me as a kid. We dug them out and went racing. And from that day forward I've been racing Slot Cars on national and local level ever since.
Now I live in the North east and growing up there were many local tracks around (not so many today) but if you search google you will find them.
This is my local raceway, https://portjeffraceway.com/ check it out and have fun
