Building the Kamakura Period Umi-Bune – Final

A completed model, but an ongoing project. Don’t think you’ve seen the last of this model.

Preparing it for the display took a bit of last minute work. I hadn’t put the remaining oars on until I was actually in the hotel the night before.

Carrying around of model of this nature, or any nature I suppose, has certain hazzards associated with it. I had taken the model to the meeting of the South Bay Model Shipwrights the night before with no problems whatsoever.
