He looks like he knows what he is doing! Keep encouraging him in this direction and he will never be in trouble! One day he may make an exact duplicate model of the Titanic, he already has the idea planted!

Great looking Ship, very nice Fit and Finish.

Guess the real test is whether it floats or flips (like the original).

He did a nice job on that and you must be very proud of him. Nothing like starting them early.

The tools are a Handy Andy kit. My dad got the same kit for me when I was a boy in the ‘70s. They are made in Poland. The quality is not great, but they are certainly usable.

I paid $49.99 on eBay. The kit I purchased was 100% complete and had never been used. They come up for sale all the time, but are almost always missing a couple of pieces.
