Thanks for the comments. I haven't been making masters for several years now, but Peter Krtina re-opened communications with me this Christmas, so I will give some thought to doing a master of Joffre. It would be in addition to doing a scratchbuilt for a client.
Someone mentioned "sculpting". Even with masters I don't do "sculpting"--just build with plastic shapes and sandpaper and cutting tools. I had NOT intended to do a master for Heian Maru. I'll think about it for the future.
Christmas workload notwithstanding, I managed to make a few new models while buying gifts, grocery shopping, and tree trimming (including two real trees in the backyard). Here they are:
My next project will be the never built French aircraft carrier "Joffre". Wish me luck!
