At one time or another you may have looked at ad elaborately detailed model of a sailing ship, built from scratch! and thought. "Wow! Wish I could do that. But I know it's too hard".

The model is actually an accumulation on tiny details executed with loving care It does not require tremendous skill to build a ship from scratch, nor even inordinate manual dexterity. Anyone with a reasonable amount of patience and average ability with the hands can turn out a magnificent piece of artwork.
