Is there any guide for scratchbuilding in card?


Recommended Posts

We don't have a guide such as what you are looking for, but we do have a number of members who have built scratch models from card. In the list of topics here, look for build logs in the scratch category. Reading through those logs should give you an idea of how to get started.

I used that tutorial to build my Prince de Neufchatel from card (my build log is one of the card builds mentioned).  Ab Hoving does an amazing job of explaining how to go from plans to model in card.  The part about translating line drawings to keel plate and bulkheads also applies to wood.
