South Dakota-Class Battleship by WarKrhyme - Cardboard


Recommended Posts

Hello captains and sailors! Sorry I didn't get to post my build log because for me, the site servers were down. For me anyways, I don't know about you people. So, this is my cardboard build and I need some of your knowledge on how to to build this ship better since i'm only using cardboard, hot glue, and Elmers. BUT... it's going to be highly detailed. It's gonna take me a long time to build this.

 

So the main model will be the USS Alabama (BB-60). Right here is my guide, a trumpeter 1/700 scale model that my brother wrecked a year ago.20180207_140308.thumb.jpg.20eedc1740e011ac3d333cc8ed4734b8.jpg20180207_140326.thumb.jpg.4d694574dce9be5299462fd393cf473a.jpg

It's gonna be a waterline model and trust me I have worked with cardboard models years ago but first time building a cardboard ship. I'm going to aim the look of the ship to be fully, pure, made of cardboard. There's an inspiration from youtube who built a cardboard Yamato. Here are the pics.20180207_140211.thumb.jpg.ee318555818cacef5fe5e9deb45a2615.jpg

I'll keep you guys updated everyday, every other day, or weekly. Thanks for making me share this.

Here is a small update to the super structure of the ship :) Time consuming even for cardboard.

Hello once again everybody! Just a small update on my ship. I built the conning tower and the smoke stack. after creating a roof for this I'll be continuing the build for the mast being followed by the main battery turrets and secondary guns. Cheers mates!! Oh and I bought a new camera so that photos can be a little more appealing and updated my work space so that my build will look more presentable.

You gentlemen might be thinking I must be a complete amateur for posting a cardboard model on this site comparing it to your more, professional work I would say.

I completely understand. And yes this is my first time building a scratch model ship. Well what do you expect? In my country there isn't much hobby stores and I'm still in college so earning money is at little for me. Anyway thanks for the support Canute & mtaylor. 

 

Be building the main battery guns this week and i'll be posting the build log. Cheers!

Don't be too worried about whether people are liking your work or not. It's true that cardboard is not everyone's favorite modeling medium, but that doesn't mean that people don't check in to see your progress. You might be interested to know that this isn't the first cardboard model we've had posted here, but it's been a while since we've had one. It's obvious from your work so far that you have some real skills, since cardboard is not the easiest medium to work with, and your model appears very neat and does, in fact, look like a South Dakota-class battleship. I'll be interested to see how you accomplish all the little detail work.

 

Cheers,
