Great looking ship, Jack!. Thanks for sharing it with us. My pastime is more of a sporting obsession... golf!

That is one fine looking ship. Me, I just work 10 - 12 hrs a day not much time for anything else at the moment.

PL, that is awesome!  It takes a great deal of patience and attention to detail to do something so intricate and cool!

when I started my health regime (no smoking, little eating) I took up counted cross stitch.  It takes some thinking to get the stitches placed correctly and you have to pick out all the stitches that you miscount.  It really has helped me not smoke and eat right!

I think I've done 6 projects since Jan 1!!

Thanks for all the kind words, the first one took me over a year to make and the two that i am working on now i have been at it for over seven months. I only work on them for about 3 hours a day. But here lately have been doing 5-6 a day just to get them finished so that i can go on to another one that i have planed and it is a Mississippi river boat.

As soon as i can get them reduce to fit here will post some of the NAVY DESTORYERS that i have done.

ONEBLUELEG, sorry to say your picture didn't come through for me, could you try again.

PIN-HI, hope your are not talking about COWPASTURE POOL, (HAHAHA), have played some but just couldn't get the hang of it, preferred BOWLING, and before i lost my legs carried 175 average with either arm, cost me a fortune for getting the balls drilled for both hand. wound up with 6 differant balls.
you-all have a great day.

Hi PLJ.  What an interesting hobby!   I love the ship.    :)

I make stained glass (copper foil) and I also do counted cross stitch. 

I also volunteer a lot of my time at an area animal shelter.  I am currently serving a term on the board of directors.  I do whatever I can to help the shelter  (attend meetings, fundraising, assist the general public, clean kennels and cages, socialize animals, walk the dogs, take animals to adoption events, etc.) 

Marilyn, congrats on starting to cross stitch.  ...6 projects since January... wow!  I've been lazy and have only completed 2.

Oneblueleg... I also enjoy your hobby.   ;)

PLJ
The ship is beautiful with all the detail we can see. You must have a great deal of patience to complete this kind of project Glad that you are sharing with us.
 How long and how tall is the model?
Do you use a plan or are you also the designer?

Hi Jack - Your ship is very impressive. How did you get started? Were you a sailor in the past? I have my horses for a hobby. I also do woodworking from lumber from trees that I cut and saw into lumber. I am always making something. I am a toolaholic. I am always buying more. I have 5 radial arm saws.  Herb

Very cool ship Jack. I'm working on my first one now. Its a Sharpie Schooner, not as intricate as yours
but wanted to start out simple and work up. Grew up building car and plane models and never tried a ship.

Now I know why.....lol  Lots of time and patients needed. Gotta work on the patients part for sure. I would really like to see your other ships you have built and even a pic of the one you have not started. Do you have many modeling tools (Dremel etc.??)

Before I start another one, I'm getting all the tools I need to make it a little easier on myself.

How ya going to get that ship in the bottle now?????
