Bluenose by Sawdust - Billing Boats - scale 1/75 - A kit previously abandoned and then resuscitated

Recommended Posts

 This  was a project begun many, many  years ago (pre internet)  on the other side of Canada. After my initial enthusiasm I  begun to realise that this kit  represented more of a Scandinavian fantasy of  a Grand banks choomer than the real Bluenose.   Discouraged  I lost interest and with the pressures of career and family my  model ship building was put on hold.  "Old Blue"  accompanied   me to  Vancouver Island when I retired and eventually made its way on to the bench. if I was to resurrect this project  I first had to accept the inaccuracies of the kit and my ability to remedy them.  Having  grown upin post war UK i learnt frugality at an early age and  nothing is thrown away, Maybe rebuilt  or recycled. I even save sawdust and shavingsand have put them to good use.   Now my build log is lost I will repost some earlier photos  and huopefully "Old Blue" like the Phoenix will rise from the ashes. 

 I am enjoying the journey and not worried about the destination,

Kip (aka sawdust)
