Challenge #4 boats all scales 6/19-8/19

Since this idea could cover any scale or most layouts what about a kitbashing/scratchbuilding boat challenge.

Thought this out as I have a 1/72 PT-109 that i plan on turning into a large Ho cabin cruiser and or small Yacht.

90 day time frame beginning to end of challenge, no base model restrictions just build a boat, yacht, cabin cruiser open or closed cabin.

So whatcha thunk. Lol.

How about a car float?  There's been a couple of them modeled nicely by denizens of the Railwire...  Is there a requirement that it be self-propelled?

As stated if it floats (your boat) couldn't resist.  As long as it's a watercraft so I think it would qualify.  Like I said this is just a challenge thought.

I could go for this as I have a freighter to convert from a resin Sylvan kit I picked up quite a while ago. Another example of using a challenge to get something off the to-do list.

If we can get a few more interested we can set a date start & end.

Anything that floats on water should be the theme that'll open it up to all sorts of stuff.

How about a start of June 1st thru August 31st. That way it allows time to complete and options for other modeling breaks also.

This way you can finish it early or start a 2nd boat or hyper detail it.

Post at least one start photo progress pics a +

If it has a boat hull and floats on water then the caddy can be entered key word water craft.

Amphibious rubber tired duck & brethren & amphibious car/truck.

Boat/Amphibious as in water going is the primary objective.

Clearly, I need to do one of the Norfolk Southern's steamers.   But, which one?
