Having spent my youthful summer vacations from school at places like Vaca Key, Breton Sound and Alazan Bay; I learned a great deal about boat repair and salvage work by doing all kinds of jobs at small wharves and deep sea salvage firms. This piece is from those youthful days and memories...It is 98% completely scratch built (example: the paint cans are drinking straws...the hot water heater is a cigar tube...the sink is fashioned out of heated plastic sheet...the coffee pot, fry pan and other items are made from sheet lead...and so on. The non-scratch built items are all parts from my extensive parts box. This is another piece that allowed me extensive usage of my term " organized chaos "...I have been working on this piece (off and on) for about 3 years...maybe one day I will finish it...but until then, each time I take it out and work on it...it brings back those youthful memories of yesteryear. There is a secondary building that goes with this piece (no interior detail...just exterior) that I will post later today or in the next few days. Hope that you will enjoy viewing both of these pieces of nostalgic memorabilia from the life of Catdancer.
