When I was still at sea, I was in the habit of building one model every voyage of two months. Because space was limited, I went onto miniatures many years ago, as there was always the problem of getting them home with me at the end of the voyage. I assembled all the parts and materials and packed them in a small plywood box. After the model was complete, I put it in the empty box to bring it home with me. The display case was then completed when on leave. Here are the component parts for the steam whaling barque Esquimax and the completed model.
