The Boat Hobby

So I got a ship I am working on at the moment the kit is from revell of germany and features a metric ton of oars and shields. As well as fun with rigging and a pretty ludicroius decal for the sail which luckly some days is my style but it would look more at home on a football team jeresy then a sail on a scale model.

So far it’s been fun I have most of the sub assembly done and will be ready to paint the next while then I am on to the run of rigging. Its one of those wierd subjects I was always facinated with but have never actually done it. It looks like besides a deep knock out mark on the mast I wont need to do much filling work. There has been little flash to remove and the mold lines scraped away nicely. Not much left to do on the main body before paitning except add blocks for the rigging in the back. The shield and oars will be painted sperately then added.

 

All in all a good simple build to get back into a hobby I used to love. the only tools I am useing right now are a xacto blade and some glue I find you dont need much more then that for assembly unless you have shallow recess lines that need to be scribed deeper.

I write fiction, do street art, used to paint trains but that's really hard when your old, they just always seemed so dull and NY had better trains then we did with more color so i always liked throwing paint at my trains, I have one main blog which is my idea board which you are probably free to steel from just don't let me catch you with my more professional lawyers, I was depressed at one point in life because people kept pointing out i was different then them thanks, I guess i am, I don't fit in anywhere particular but I'm pretty happy because it seems like instead i fit in everywhere. I occasionally use grape vines to talk at some people, which are slow but un hack-able, I'm also my own medical researcher and a host of other nifty job titles i don't mind doing for myself it makes me happier each day! I am intelligent to the point where i'm hyper curious about things so i tend to ask alot of question about stuff if peole dont piss on me for having the super human ability of curiosity which keeps me learning despite a system that turned its back on me long ago, I still survive and write, one day i might go public but considering I'm probably wanted in my home town and don't even know it because i never got caught i don't often clue people in on who i am on earth, on the inter webs. while i have many masks that may seems scary even to some people I'm genuinely just a man making his community a better place to live for everyone he talks to that ever had a sad story who erased my metal ass face? I liked my metal face?
