    Well I believe there are about 50 that are complete, but could be more as there are still parts of my store areas that haven't been accessed by me since 2013.
    Allow that about 15% are in need of restoration or repair.
    The models that I take to the vintage shows range from 1914 up to the 1990's .
    Hopefully with a model built in each decade on display.
    Only about half my models are ready to sail at present.
    So plenty to keep me busy for a few years yet.
    Cheers Colin.

    There never too many, as long as you have room and enjoy the hobby.
    I believe in helping those young people who show an interest in our hobby, so don't hesitate to ask if you need help (I'm pushing 72).
    1 boat for each year of my life is my aim, so here's to a long life.
    Cheers Colin.

    It's great to see another young person getting into this hobby. I was first introduced to it when I was nine when my parents bought me an RAF Crash Tender for my ninth birthday. I was helped with the build by my father and have been interested ever since. I hope ๐Ÿคž that your grandson also likes the hobby and stay with it. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž I would like to add that I'm now about 7 weeks from my 70th birthday and still enjoy both building (and as my wife would say) playing with my model boats.She says I have too many and shudders when I bring in another into the house.

    Jacko,
    I bet he enjoyed painting it.
    He looks happy with his efforts.
    Practice makes perfect.
    Tell him to keep up the good work.
