Yeah that coat came out great, really cool effect with stitch pattern. The scale & attention to detail with the Battleships is just dizzying. The build alone is awesome, but your brush work just gives it life. What struck me the most going through all of the pics was the skirting (for lack of a better word) on the insides of the double kannon turret , That you included it.... :eek wow Outstanding job :thumbs

I finally decided to have a go at the lift that will service the various levels of the superstructure, allowing the orks to get up to the helm platform to have a go at steering. Although it wont actually be operable whilst sailing the boat, like various other elements of the ship I did want it to be adjustable so I can change how things look.

Started off by constructing the basic lift platform which has a tab that nicely slides along the runner that will be fitted through the superstructure...

Here you can see how the two parts fit together...

I then added some handrails to the lift platform itself, still need to add a few more details such as safety chains and controls etc.
You can also see that I have added a little pulley at the top of the shaft and attached a chain to the platform. The chain will eventually loop around to the bottom of the runner and joining up with the bottom of the platform. This will give a continuous loop of chain that will hopefully allow the platform to be moved up and down but still hold it in place enough so that it doesnt drop under its own weight.

Here is a final shot showing how the lift provides access to 3 levels...

Still a bit of work to do to get it finished, but going well so far :)

Basically just 3 layers of 1.5mm plastic card
First layer is the back, then two 3mm wide strips, then two 5mm strips all sandwiched together.

Very nice ship you do there :thumbs . But my big mek mind says: Make the building at the ship larger! I would add more buildings to the ship, mabye something like a car port with a crane for a Trukk. That would be very cool! :cheers Gitkilla

So another little job that's been lingering on the to do list for some time... the other firing position on the roof of the superstructure. I decided to go for a nice chunky Gatling gun, operated by another of my old Bad Moon ork boyz.

looks better and better every time you post something. When working with green-stuff do you use a Clay shaper? Also how do you do your rivets? Punch? Press? or cut from rod? the look to even for cut from rod.

Thanks :)

Yes, for GS I have an Extra Firm Clay Shaper set (size 0).

The rivets are indeed cut from rods. I mostly use 0.75mm, 1.2mm and a few 2mm.

That is a really great looking gatling gun, love the detail especially that sight. But those empty shell casings look weedy compared to the size of the ammo drum and caliber of the barrels.

Absolutely amazing. Really incredible work, such attention to detail and aesthetics. My own feeble plasticard skills have been truly humbled this day. I can't believe that this thing will actually float as well! Just nuts. Please do keep updating, your work is top-notch and very inspirational.

Loving the ship so far. The weapons and details such as the lifts are excellent. Looking forward to seeing it progress further. Damn it, I want to do an Ork Navy now.

This past week I have been working on the rear of the superstructure. Nothing particularly exciting but stuff that needed doing.

The wall of armour plating has been continued around the back and Iíve added a small curved section of railing around the chimney stack. The chimney stack has also been extended downwards to connect to the main deck.
Posted Image

On the main chimney stack Iíve added some baffles to the opening to provide some interest and detail. I have also fitted a Ďwoodení platform around the stack as a possible sniper position for a grot or two. Will eventually add access by means of a ladder of some description.
Posted Image

Iíve also added some drips on to the side of main chimney stack where it sits below the oozing pipe.
Posted Image

At this stage there is still more detail and gubbins to be added.
Other than the above I reckon I've added a few hundred more rivets to areas I have been avoiding :blush

That's incredibly impressive. I'm quite amazed and inspired! Great crafting skills and painting, just everything is awesome. I can't wait to see it finished. Keep it up! I'll use this as inspiration for my Ork Fort i'm working on. WAAAGH!
