We have had this discussion before about the ''museum quality'' stuff. One can put a cave painting next to a Rembrant. The cave painting is crude and lacking in super fine detail when compaired to the Rembrant, But both are ''museum quality items.

There are simple boats like the old K&O'S in museums as well as highly detailed down to the last nut and bolt,both are art and both are crafts.

Your Caldercraft Milford Star is great and it would fit in both catagories.

For the most part we in this hobby are both artists AND craftsmen regardless of the expertese we have. From scratch builder to kit builder we are artisans at our craft.
