Had never done scale modeling. A picture of HMS surprise started it all. Got a Piece of wood and started. Some of the tools had to be self made. All pieces are carved out from solid wood. Till now the preferred medium is wood. Took two years to complete the double decked three masted ship. Completed a Stage Coach. After Arado Sea Plane, was trying to do something small. For sometime wanted to do a puppet. The puppet is still work in progress, the little fellow is still to go on strings. The joints fixtures are temporary. Trying to find fine bolts.
