This is Not a Kit

Jim & Mayflower June 2008-1
This is a picture of my dad building a new ship model, The Mayflower. He does it all by hand and it’ll take him a year from this point to finish. Wow! What dedication and talent! For those who don’t know, this is his second large-scale model. The first was the 9 ft long Enoch Train on display in the Museum of Church History and Art. Because of his interest in this sort of thing, he and my mom started a ship modeling magazine called “Seaways: Ships and Scale” many years ago and they still run the business. It is the premier ship modeling magazine in the United States. Pretty cool stuff.
