At Coalville, in an effort to promote the clubs lifeboat day, I took along the only orange boat that I own - my scratchbuilt Brede.
The model hasn't seen the light of day for about 2 years, and that was after at least 18 months storage. I'm shocked to realise I "finished" the model in 2013.
Except it's not finished. I got far enough to produce a magazine article to a deadline and then stopped.
Part of the problem was that my initial thoughts had been around a really perfect miniature and yet I know the hull isn't quite the right shape, not bulbous enough at the front. It wasn't as good as I hoped so I tucked it away.
Seeing the model afresh, you know I didn't do a bad job. I even got a few compliments at the show.
There's not a huge amount to do. Perhaps I can add a little missing detail before May's lifeboat day and then get it out on the water.
Has anyone else come back to an old model and revised their opinion positively?
