Some day I'd love to build models and such. I do miss my Lake Michigan and seeing/hearing the ships come in. emoticon

It's too bad that we don't live closer to each other, Hasah. Because I have a still unfinished 1/350th scale model of Titanic sitting on one of my tables. Her four funnels are simply resting on their proper places on her, with her guy wires dangling down both her port and starboard sides..

Plus, my paint which to use on her, has sine dried up.

I need help of an expert who has the patience of a saint to finish building her. I wish that I could persuade my Uncle Gary (he's Will's lookalike) to help me finish building my ship.
