Harlan Hubbard shantyboat model
This model has been close to being done for a few years. I guess it took time for me to come to terms with the fact that it could not be a 'perfect' scale model. I had the hull made by a man who did a board by board professional job building the hull Harlan described in Shantyboat. But he put an inside wall in the wrong place, completely left off the between deck exterior storage, added a hatch on the front deck which was not pictured or described, and completely missed my instructions about the bed box which was put on castors during the day so that it could be pushed under the front deck when not in use. In small spaces, such details are important.
