After building plastic kits for a very long time I decided I wanted a change of pace . I got interested in wooden boats/ships after seeing some in a museum in Chicago . After building two , and not all that well I must add I came across this kit on eBay . I was hooked and ordered it . Been working on it for a couple of weeks . Still a lot to do but I’m getting there . I had no idea that anything like this was ever built .
Right, so this was converted from a "Family Weekend" sized Vodka Barrel?
P.S. You've heard about the Irishman who drowned after falling into a vat of Guinness? It took him all day to do so, it would probably have taken less except he had to keep getting out to relieve his bladder....
