Stage 9 of 19 is now complete. “You’re nearly halfway!” I hear you call. I know technically you would imagine that we are about halfway done, but having looked ahead in the instructions, you are wrong. Not only are there still 1000s of pieces to assemble (exaggeration I know), but it looks like I may actually need a PhD to complete this month’s project.
Problems occurred since last blog entry: stupidly small pieces, holes not big enough to fit pieces and badly moulded plastic pieces, to name but a few. Close-up of deck shows some very shoddy model building…
But I’m passed hoping it is going to be a work of art that will end up in Tate Modern or on the Fourth Plinth at Trafalgar Square. Although, having someone attempt to build The Cutty Sark whilst sat on the plinth could actually be quite entertaining, however it may not be for family viewing (I’ll drop Boris an email).
Stage 10 requires yet more small pieces to be added to deck before we look to assemble the masts and associated stuff. Not to forget loads more painting. This is how it looks at the moment…..I realise it looks much the same as a couple of days ago…..
I think I need a break from The #$@*$@* Cutty Sark!!!!
