My goal was not a beautiful ship, but getting my son interested in
making stuff (and also him having relaxed time when no one is yelling).
Ship was spray painted gold, except for the US flag.

That's a cute kid. He's likely to get help in the girl department.
When we moved to Michigan, my sons holed up in the basement playing
video games for a few weeks because they showed up here between
semesters in the middle of winter (NOT recommended. Move in the
summer.) After about two weeks, the doorbell rang and I answered.
Three pretty high school aged girls were at the door, and I assumed
they were selling band candy or something. Instead, they asked for my
middle son by name, and asked if they could come in and meet him. Mind
you, he hadn't met anyone yet. After they talked a little, he said
there was a party and could he go. I said of course, and away he
Apparently, there is enough communication and common interests between
the two company towns that the word got out. He may have missed his
Texas friends, but didn't lack for companionship, that's for sure.
For his first dance, he had noticed that the local dress style was
grunge (which makes a lot of sense in a Michigan winter. Layers, you
know.) He decided that wasn't for him, went to the western store and
got some tight blue jeans, white shirt, and boots, then borrowed his
brother's big belt buckle. The next day I asked him how the dance
went. He said it was awful, he got really dehydrated (said with a
shit eating grin). Then he said he couldn't get to the water fountain
through the women wanting to dance.
Somehow, I don't recall dances being like that when I was young. Of
course, he's a lot better looking. Takes after his mother, I guess.
