|How important is the project to you? Do you have access to a boat? Making a truly accurate model (taking the lines off an extant boat) would be a lot of work (but doable - I'm sure someone in the Marine Museum in Halifax would be able to point you to a source of instruction). On the other hand, if all you want is a boat model that looks sufficiently like a Bluejacket to please the eye, half an hour with a camera would probably give you enough views to turn the trick.
I probably shouldn't repeat this, but an exchange student we had living here gave me a model kit for the Bluenose for Xmas. Now, to me and probably to you, this model looks nothing like Bluenose, but I painted it carefully in Bluenose colours and everyone thinks it looks lovely (I like it, but it only looks like Bluenose in the most general way). Your mileage may vary.
