With all the projects I work on, progress in any one of them can be a bit slow. Every now and then I start to get antsy to finish something. This is one of those times, so I decided to finish up my 18th Century English Longboat. I’ve had this small 1:48-scale model (1/4″=1′) project since about January of 2012. Though I’ve primarily worked on scratch projects over the last few years, I decided to pick up the kit as something straight forward to build, something that didn’t require lots of research or decision making – just something to work on when I didn’t feel like working on something else.
Over the course of almost two years I worked on the model here and there and pretty well finished up the hull. After the recent ship model display at the Good Sam Showcase of Miniatures, where the model was displayed “in progress”, I decided the model was close enough to being done that I would go into high gear on it and finish it up. I hope to finish it up in the next week or two and will post more about it as I go.
