    This is my latest design to complement the previous warhammer small boat flotilla. I was considering the build thread in the Warhammer section but it can also be built here as well, since it is a watercraft of sorts. I was trying to make it simple but it seems that I am at it again, trying to cram a lot of details into it. Here is a teaser as to where I am at at the moment in the build process. If I upload the plans, keep in mind, that they are subject to cut and fit as needed parts. Lamination's will decide how thick some of the panels will fit and you will need to adjust as needed. Enjoy and soon I will start to post some build sequences for your enjoyment.

    Yup, more details, which will slow down the build process as I edit the photos.


    Here is the start of the build and as with all boats, the build start from the bottom up. The last photo is of the interior and the parts can be used with other models as well. It is part of the plans for the Command and Control Boat.

    Thanks for your comment and for looking in.

    Is that MG made from paper at a 1/1 scale? It should be interesting, especially repairing that hole in the floor board.


    Well the build continues and here are more photos of the hull build.

    The build continues and the hull is taking shape. It is very strong and can handle constant use for war-gaming.

    This version is the command and control and will have an array of electronic equipment inside, but the boat can be configured into a first aid medical craft, supply and troop transport or any other config that you can think of. This one will also have an upper control center cabin and hopefully a good selection of extra details.

    More update photos of the build. At this stage, the vessel can go into different versions. The troop and supply version is the easiest, since it needs only a control station and some armaments. For the command and control, it will have an upper cabin, detailed interior and removable sections to look inside. Enjoy and see you all soon with more updates.

    And so, the build continues. You will notice that the seat harness is a five point. For this build thread, the bottom leg strap is omitted. If you use the seat for an aircraft, the five point is recommended. The seat pedestal is built up with a short paper stick and some angled pieces to lock the pedestal in. If you do not want to go this route, you can make a small box and use that as the base. The steering system is different, in that it looks like an aircraft control. You can replace this with a joystick version or two steering bars like in an everglades boat. Enjoy and I will see you soon with more stuff.

    Thanks, keep in mind, that this is the secondary control section, there will be another primary section above deck. Here is a teaser as to where the vessel is at in the build stage. Disregard all of the smudge marks,, they will be painted over in the final stages.

    Continuing with the build. A bit of a slow down due to other priorities. In the build, the lower secondary command control is similar to the top side main one with little differences. The bulkheads are placed inside the compartment. the one behind the command center is placed directly behind the command seats. the second bulkhead can be place at a location of your choice depending on the inside layout. If it is made into a medical support ship, it can be omitted. More to come, enjoy and see you all soon.

    It reminds me of a modern version of the Russian River patrol boats in WWII. Excellent! :)

    Thanks for looking in. One thing about the Russian small boats, they were very basic in form and in comfort. While this one looks basic in nature, it will have more details and comforts. Here in this session, the upper control cabin is constructed. You can make out how thick the walls are to simulate the armor properties of the boat.

    It is slow going for the moment due to real live issues and I hope to post more often. I already have my ideas for more Warhammer, Civil War pieces, More boats And hopefully a tutorial on the Galactica hangar figurines. Enjoy and hope to see you all soon.

    All of the little details make a HUGE difference!
    This project is really coming to life.

    That's not a hole in the floor board, that my "Flintstone Drive" system. They've been in use since we were Troglodytes! :)

    No, really, those are two holes in the floor board. One hole to let water in and one to let water out.
