Titanic Model

We have finished building Hang Hang's Titanic model. I did most of the assembly and detail works. Hang Hang helped on painting. Good thing he has learned to color within lines. Now this becomes his favorite toy. He loves to manipulate it and sink it at various angles. You may wonder whether it is a good idea to gives a five year old a model as detailed and as delicate as this? I think I know the answer. Let's enjoy it while it last.

This is the first model I built since I was a teenager. I think I am a much better craftsman now. It reminds me how clueless I was applying glue back then. Now I can control the right amount of glue much better so that it bonds but do not squeeze out badly. My presbyopia is terrible though. I have to take off my glass and hold the object in front of my face for any detail work.
