Your have got some real talent there, nevermore. I wouldn't know how to even start a project like that.

That looks really good. More pix!!!

All it is is two pieces of black foamboard 5mm thick on top of each other, cut to shape, sand down abit cardboard cut for the sides, poppy  pins pushed in for Rivets.

The rest is coffee stirrers for decking, then just basic build on top, the big gun is a plastic 1/72 gun, i just build the front and side panels, port holes are washers, granny sewing mesh for the grills ... just a paint job then the weathering really brings it to life.

Thanks for the comments guys. O0

I'd really like to do a game that just used small gunboat naval action.
