Very nice models. Are these based on the old pond yachts in that they are steered via the sails rather than the later ones which are radio controlled, or are they just for decoration

Fantastic detail to them all, takes lots of patience to do that kind of work, way above my skill level.
Great job, they will be proud of their Grandpa for their lifetimes, and pass them on to your great grand children.

Of coarse they are good, they are real good. I was wondering about the serial numbers. Are they the date you completed them or what?
