These are two more old projects I made long before I had a woodshop. I built them in my bedroom as a teenager when I was into model building.
The first is a sailboat that I built in similar fashion to how you would build a full-size boat, around a frame. Its mostly made of balsa but the hull is covered in actual fiberglass resin. My grandma sewed the sails for me. The base is driftwood. I made the pulleys myself, and all the “block and tackle” actually works.
The second boat is a fishing boat I built from photos in a book. I painted the water stains on the sides and added real beach sand to the inside to make it look like a real old workin boat. The crab pots are made out of window screen panted silver.
