When I was building Smuggler, I got to the point where I really needed a break. Smuggler was a 9-month long project and I was in danger of failing to finish it. I realy needed to get something completed, so I went to the local hobby shop and picked up this Midwest kit.

It didn't take long to build - maybe 3 or 4 weeks. It certainly wasn't difficult and I built it straight out of the box. As with the Lobster Smack, I wasn't ready to tackle sails on a model yet, but this boat still looks fine without them. Muscongus Bay Lobster Smack

In fact, the model is really cute and very pleasant to look at. I kept it on my desk at work for a long time.

The paint job is pretty bad (and the photography isn't much better). Painting has never been one of my best skills but I keep learning and improving.
