cool!  All of mine are lasercut wood and insulation or actual plank on bulkhead construction.  what are you using to print the cardstock?  Note here, my color laser jet by Samsung is not the right answer!

Wow that's a huge ship.

Good luck, card models aren't always easy, and this looks like a challenge!

That looks amazing and not a little bit intimidating at all! :blink:

 

I have every confidence that you'll do it justice and I'm really looking forward to seeing your progress.

So my Husband needs a boat for his 4E campaign. It unfortunately cannot wait until Bones 5 delivers so I bought a paper craft boat from World Works Games. It's called The Maiden. It's HUGE. Photo from the website in spoiler. In the photo you can see a few minis placed on it for scale.

Like I said HUGE. I've done some other paper craft boats before but nothing like this. I'll be using foamcore for the base of the decks but the rest of it is card stock, transparency paper, and Uhu glue(the glue stick not the liquid-y stuff). I'm not yet sure which figurehead and props I will be using. I may just make them all and let Husband decide what he wants/needs after that.

 

Thankfully, this thing comes with pretty detailed instructions so it shouldn't be...not sure hard is the word I want but it's the one I'm going to use. So it shouldn't be hard, it's just up to my skill to cut, glue, and (most importantly) follow directions. It will take lots of time though I am sure of that. 

 

I've always liked this ship. I was so glad I made a conscious effort to buy/download the files* before they went under. Would you mind sharing the instructions? Apparently I've misplaced that file. (3 computers later. I really should just put the entire file on one of my cloud sharing sites).

 

Thanks & good luck with this one!!

 

*Which reminds me I need to download the stl files from Bombshell!!

Wow!  Now that's a boat!  :winkthumbs:

 

Good luck with the build.  I've yet to try real paper-craft other than couple very simple GW ones from old White Dwarf magazines so very curious to see how this turns out.

Yes! PM me your email address and I will email you the instructions PDFs.

So far not much work has been done. I cut out a few of the deck pieces and printed transparencies. The ink has not dried on it so I'm thinking I will have to print them on card stock and then trace with a sharpie onto the transparency sheet.

They went under? I know they haven't released anything new lately, but I just logged into my account there and everything works fine. Even started a download to make sure it would go and all went well. You should still have access to anything you've purchased in the past.

That is what I have heard. As far as I can tell everything like that works fine. Haven't run into any trouble with anything yet.

Might need to totally redo that middle section. Might have figured out why the transparency didn't dry. If so I need to reprint and cut things out that I didn't previously that I needed to.

      So! I'm back. I haven't finished any of my other WIPs lately but I figure one more won't hurt. 
       
      I'm planning on doing a film noir style desert expedition whereupon our investigators find something not of this world. 
       
      I'm really excited for this one(not that I'm not excited for all my projects) but I have some hurdles to cross. 
       
      I want a wall between the white and grey bones, preferably crumbly looking. Not sure where to start with that.  Figure out the best way to magnetize things. And the really big one: figure out how to actually paint in the style I'm trying to do.   
      This will involve a lot of work and time. As well as some (maybe a lot of) practice minis. 
       
      I'm currently in the mock up stage. I've got the minis I want and I'm trying to stage them how I think will look good as well as imagine the wall where I want it.
      First stages of mock up.

      Spent just about a week on this one. It was fun. My GS work sucks but it's done. C&C welcome.

      Painted this up. Finally attached her to the base. Not sure if I want to just paint black over the base or do something fancy with it.

      It's been quite some time since I've done a show off but here goes.
       
      I painted this mini in about 6 hours. Still need to gloss and seal. C&C welcome.
