The models will be plastic and the game will include, for both the British and French fleets, 1 Leviathan, 1 light cruiser and 2 destroyers; for 8 total models.

That's ugly and brutal, but in a very beautiful way  Laugh

Another masterpiece of making gold from junk. I love it!

thx, guys.  Actually, it was easy to make and so would a larger one be.

1. Go to the toy shop (best time = spring, summer)
2. check out the Super Soaker section
3. pick one you fancy
4. saw off the handgrip
5. turn it upside down and have a good look at it
6. put aside for a while
7. repeat steps 5 & 6 a couple of times  Laugh
8. plunder your bitbox and keep some plastic card, strip, washers, the lot (you know   Wink ) at hand
9. Action!: "camouflage" the area where the grip was attached (I mounted the open bridge there)
10. build, build, build.... (I left the pump mechanism as it was, it enables the tail to be lengthened and the fins to turn around their axis)
11. when finished (or so you think...) repeat step 7 again a couple of times...
12. Prime the model (you never know about plastics & acrylics...)
13. Sit back, lit up a cigar and pour yourself a single malt (that's what I do: I really do HATE this hobby, but it's a good excuse to get  Hypno)
14. Post it on LAF...

Easy, not?
Have a go at it...

Rudi, easy for you and easy for me are two very different things...  Laugh

You're right, though. Funnily enough, my son has some old water guns that mysterously seem to have broken during the winter.....  Wink

Fortune smiles at you... Laugh  I'm not that lucky: my son is 38 (no more water guns to be found there) and my granddaughter is just 4 months...

Here is another photo of the first production prototype on a makeshift stand:



So it would appear that the basing isn't going to be terribly high.

Bunch more (and far better) photos at the link I posted at the beginning of the thread.
