Here is my latest project – A scale model of the famous Canadian schooner Bluenose.
Its the same ship as on a Canadian 10 cent coin.
Made to scale with no plans or help, just a lot of google to find sizes etc.
Made almost totally from scrap wood and other things around the house.
The hull is made from maple off cuts from another project, the base it sits on is a birch off cut with a 10 cent coin inlay, the masts, booms and gaffs are all dowels, the sails are from a canvas painters drop cloth, the rigging is string and fishing line, all rigging is attached with cotter pins and small nails, the steering wheel is made from copper wire, the cabins and fittings were wood out of the burn box.
All up this project cost me less than $20.
Its sitting on display in the house now and looks great.
