Post Apoc River Traders Craft.
« on: July 18, 2011, 06:39:06 PM »
The rivers of the Post Apocalyptic world are an easy way to travel and trade. Many communities rely on the River for water. Even if it is contaminated and filthy. This little vessel was built so that a trader can make a living from the rivers.





The landing ramp works and it has room to take a decent sized vehicle or horde for raiding missions.

The model was made from Balsa, cereal packet card and bits from the bits box. I am still trying to think of a name for this tub.

Well done! The tire fenders are a particularly nice touch.

Thanks for the comments. I had loads of toy cars I ripped tyres off and stored for terrain. I remembered seeing tyre fenders on the Mersey Ferry as a kid.

That is a great idea! One of those rafts made out of planks and empty barrels would look good next to it.

Very nice stuff there, well done!

Inky, you do know that you are not supposed to drink old spice?

Well done. Shame I don't got a river in my little slice of the Post Apocalypse.

i really like it, it has a really "dinamic" shape!

The only thing is tha tthe wooden pieces are really big: that's ok, but i shall suggest you to add some details on the planks, like some nails, cables, some wheels or similar... just to make it less... well, wooden :)
