My Dad builds boats.
Dad has always had a love affair with the water, and sailing and boats. Over the years he has owned several sail boats.
He also builds boats... Models.
He has the unique ability to see a picture or photo of a boat, scale it and then build a model.
These are a few of the models he has built. This is great stuff, even if he weren't my Dad.
They are for sale.
Models are constructed of basswood and balsa. They are for display not working models.
