Burglar... or jealous classmate? Your post jogged a memory of a viking ship assignment

I had long ago in grade school. Most kids bought the Revell plastic model, I chose to build from scratch. Mine had balsa wood hull, toothpick oars, tiny painted shields along the gunnels, etc. The teacher gave me a lower grade saying it wasn't as detailed as the other kids (kit) ones (!). I remember being somewhat disenchanted with that teacher from then on. And one day the display area got wacked by some kid, and mine ship was the only casualty. Coincidence? I think not.
