Well I'm out - unless you count the wooden model motorboat I put
together in my teens and failed to fix when it started to come apart at
the seems due to repeated immersions. I didn't know what to do, so I put
it in a box. I saw the box recently and thought m_a_y_be.... BUT it's
not currently moving forward. The rocking horse carving I started in my
twenties doesn't even come close. It's lying on a high shelf....
