A friend from my dad's model ship club started this ship but, sadly, passed away before finishing it. My dad took on the task of finishing this beautiful model and will be auctioning it off (starting bids at $10,000.) If you know anyone who is a true connoisseur of fine modelling, pass this on. The money will be given to charity.
If you will be in Kansas City, Mo., the model will be on display in April at Commerce Bank. (Hmm, there are multiple Commerce banks in K.C. -- I'll get back to you on which one it will be specifically.)
