    That's great! Thanks for the plans. Are you using 'body putty' on the side???

    This looks like the perfect project for one of the grandsons.

          Terry, your the first one I have noticed on this site that uses a scroll saw for model building.

          Model building is mostly why I owned a scroll saw until a year of so ago when I started dabbling with craft woodworking. I used to use my scroll saw almost exclusively for RC model airplane building. I seldom scratch build planes today. I still repair crash damage using the scroll saw to cut the various pieces being replaced though.

            Back in the early seventies I got my first Dremel scroll saw, Won it .
            I used it exclusively for building rc planes. Then about 10 years ago the dremel just was a piece of junk so I up graded to my current craftsman.
            I use it for everything. Great tool!
            No more planes though. My current Scroll saw projects seem to last a lot longer.

            It's all fun

              And I thought I was being bad using my saw for model skiffs.Your tug looks great.I use my saw with a fence a lot cutting the sides,ribs,seats,stern and about the whole model.The wood I use is thin and I get a cleaner cut with the scroll saw.

                My first scroll was a Dremel also. Only mine was a Christmas present when I was 10 years old. I had that saw for over forty years. It sat unused for years at a time though. I used that first saw for modeling way back then as I use my current scroll saw today.

                    Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75. I have a sister in assisted living with hospice people and care givers that come and go everyday...they still haven't received the...

                    We have not. A visit to the doctor and he stated that once sick with covid, the antibodies are active in the body.

                    My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an bbc.co appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
