Saxon /viking longship from cereal packet card.
« on: January 31, 2015, 04:16:43 PM »
I posted in another topic on waterlining a long ship.That I had a couple to make for the York show.So here they are.
Rather than go for the late 9th cent classic Sail baring long ship,I've gone for an ealier oared coastal raider.(mainly because I only left myself twelve hours in which to make them)

They are made from cereal boxes!?!?  :o
How?
The only bits that looked like cereal box card was the bits that they were sitting on.
They look fab. I'm trying to make some bronze-age ships in 15mm, and so far they don't look too bad, but it's a slow process.

Thank you gent's.
They are just cereal packet card.The golden rule of using such a material is to have the printed side on the inner side.
But if your having trouble making your 15mm boats.Just post a pic'of what it is your making and what's giving you issue's.And I'll do my best to trouble shoot for you.But belive me the language I've uttered making these at speed would make a nun blush lol.(not to mention how many times I've stuck my fingers to the card with evil glue.)
As for a tutorial I don't think this version of a longship will translate,as these are throw away modeld for the 1st Corps.game at York tomorrow.I don't expect them to last the day. lol.
But if your at the show ,ask Simon or Mick at 1st corps.Where I am and they'll point me out,or ring me,and I'll be happy to talk you through making one.
All the methods you need are in a couple of tutorials over in the Workbench section.
The crew are with Simon and Mick ready for tomorrow.
It is possible to make the classic looking longship using the same methods but some of the ocean going ships,work out at roughly 40cm long when done in 28mm.So it would take a fair bit of my spare time to build and post a tutorial for one.
If I do give in and do one it couldn't be until March at best.

Cracker Mark, again you excel where ever breakfast and superglue combine. :-*

Why do you not expect it to last more than a day? Evil glue is pretty tough and there isn't any fiddly protruding parts.

Cheers

I haven't eaten cereal for year's,But with five Kids and a couple of foster kids I had to do something with all the recycling.(we're always short of bin space)hense all the card tutorials.
I can't see them lasting too long on the edge of table at Show,with a bar.(but I could be wrong)last year I had a couple of ww1 vehicles grow leg's and wander off (I like to think they've gone to live on a farm.)
