Thinking out loud and talking to oneself as one often does - I can count on one hand - of model ships which I started to build and put to one side to finish at a later date. Some of them I have totally scrapped. A model I began of HMS Warspite and I scrapped it completely due - and me wife has just reminded me she was going to put plants in HMS Warspite hull (1:96 scale fairly large) and I scrapped it before it was planted up 😉
The 2nd hull which was of a tug and I wasnt happy with that - I put it in boiling water to soften the glue and managed to salvage the planking that I could.
Then model of a cargo ship - MV Duburg - I completed the hull but wasnt happy with the deck level - the deck was twisted (it took after me) hahahahah anyway, that sat in the loft for over a year and a half until one day I replanked it, levelled it off etc.
The latest one to date where I have stopped half way through was a 1:48 scale model of a Castle Class HMS Leeds Castle (2nd World War one) (vintage) this one I diagonally planked the hull and for some reason I wasnt happy with the hull and I have just left it on the building board.
The last one - was the Guardsman hull. it was originally planked in balsa wood - and I knocked it into the vice on me bench and it punched a big hole in the side of it. I stripped all the balsa wood planking off and replanked it in obechi. The other thing I did differently to the plan on the Guardsman was that I didnt like the way the door was on the front of the bridge, so, I moved the doors to the side - therefore deviating from Vic Smeed's plan.
The latest creation of mine is the Ireland Class hull which up to now I have managed to finish planking, got most of the internals in and busy putting the deck on . Here are a couple of pics for yaz.
