Tim writes: “When I was first married I got my wife a piano for Christmas, and she gave me a 1/75 scale Billings model of the Cutty Sark. A while back, FSM Editor Matthew Usher wrote that his dad would take five years or more to build a wooden plank-on-frame ship. Mine took me 35 years. I changed the deadeyes from plastic to wood, and there were many other replacements as well, including the rigging and copper sheath.”
