    Nice build, thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed following your last card model build and have been waiting to see another.

    Are you posting pics of your wooden ships somewhere? I am presently working on one as well for my brother. Its a scratchbuild of the tall ship Elissa out of Galveston.

    I like to slip in card models as a break from the Elissa. I really want to start on a big battleship in paper, but I only have room for one large project at a time.

    Hope you're all healed up by now Chris. And as far as wood goes - what is wood anyway but preprocessed paper? :p

    The store has a side profile blueprint which you can buy, but does not provide any other sections or plan views. I dipped into my drawing collection and found another ship almost the same which had that information. I made a drawing where I used the data from the other plan and massaged it a little to fit the limited information on the Elissa blueprint.
    The ship is iron/steel construction and I wanted to capture that appearance. I applied card stock over the entire surface to simulate that. I am quite pleased at how it turned out and it was fairly quick and easy.

    Pics show as far as I got.
