My first ever scratch built *model* was a 1:600 ship, ot destryer type. At 
the time I was about 12 and hellbent on joining the Navy as an officer (but 
crap eyesight saved me)

My first ever scratchbuilt aircraft was a Fokker E.III in 1/72   I was about 
15.  It wasn't available here, looked simple enough and with an engine from 
(I think) a broken Airfix Dr.1 I was away.

I probably have about 20 fully scratch models in my history which is amazing 
considering how slowly I work. OTOH most predate marriage...
