Re: My first ship model
The first model ship was a scratchbuilt waterline war emergency destroyer (as I remember it) made by my dad when I was in isolation hospital with Scarlet Fever in about 1953/4. It was painyed silver-grey. He built several more as I was in for about 4 months. I had to leave everything behind when I left, which really upset me at the time; I was crying over their loss in the ambulance on the way home, I was only four and on my own for some reason. So what I remember as old ladies took pity on me and gave me some money,silver. So I arrived home tear stained with a handful of money! A replacement was made which I kept for many years, but it was lost during a house move unfortunately
My first purchased mode would be a Minic Queen, not sure which one, If pushed probably Mary.
