Nice! Cool How are you going to do the planks around the hull? Also what size is this bad boy? Is it for 28mm?

Not sure at this moment. I think it will be sticky-back plastic.

The model is built to 1/300th scale or 1mm = 1 foot.....

So no it is not for 28mm figures, it will be for 6mm figures.

Correct: The model is built to 1/300th scale  Cheesy

I'm hoping to use the Shark build as inspiration/goading so it can attack my Zeppelin!

The hull looks really nice. From the picture alone I thought it was made from balsa wood.

Most of the work last night was defining the basic hull shape. I have used card blanks to both define and add height to the hull, then filled any gaps with a filler/uPVA glue mix before sanding with sanding sticks and flexible pads.





More to come.

The upper hull sides have been modelled from card. I find that card bends and conforms to the curved hull sides better than plastic card. I used superglue to glue these parts into place and then filled any gaps with a filler/uPVA glue mix. Once the filler was fully set, I sanded the sides with both a sanding stick and sanding pads.



The small sets of steps towards the rear of the main deck are just triangles of Pink Foam glued in place with superglue. With every addition of filler and then sanding, the hull sides and hull shape is further refined.

More detailing on the hull sides.



The deck and hull sides continue to get attention. The forward section now has a gun redoubt that will house a cannon on a swivel base. This was built from a section of Biro barrel. Once again the other parts were card glued in place with superglue and then filled with fine filler and uPVA glue before being sanded smooth.

This is awesome looking, it's been really fascinating watching the hull shape get refined.

Could you post a picture with something else alongside the hull for some scale, please? I know this is small but a coin or Xacto knife or even just holding it in your hand for a pic would be great for a proper sense of the size.

The latest update; and at long last the Hammerhead Shark head has been modelled.



I have used some scrap Green Foam to model the simple aerofoil section and then, when I was happy with the shape I cut it in half and glued one half to each side of the hull. The shape was refined once the glue was fully set, by sanding with some fine sanding sticks and pads. The upper nose section has been filled with DAS modelling clay and I would expect this to be further detailed once fully hardened.

The gills are sections of plastic floor sections from the Airfix Sci-Fi platform kit. They were cut out with a razorsaw, before being thinned and glued in place with superglue.

The model is 150mm long, 50mm wide (across the head) or 25mm wide (across the hull) and 26mm deep at the central hull.
