Thanks Paul, below Her, on the table, are the cannons, ready to go into HMS Victory.

I do plastic models. Mainly 1/35 military 1/32 airplanes and 1/200 ships…also 1/16 armour

lots of delicate painting and building sets to play on.

Certainly need a steady hand there Harry :+1::slightly_smiling_face:

This is very like a model my dad made from cigar boxes which he got from our neighbour.
He also made models of yachts from matches.
He flew biplanes made from Izal toilet paper out of the loo window and gliders from the envelopes of his football,pools.

Unfortunately he died when I was thirteen.

Ah that’s sad Jane, a shame for you too, sounds as though He was an interesting Man, the family must have missed Him a great deal :heart:

Thanks Carol, I have a few more I’ve done, currently have HMS Victory ‘on the go’, but it’s going to take years, if I last long enough! :grin:

Few pictures of some of my “efforts”
