So the Governor General of Sector 6 and I are embarking on a wild and zany campaign, which requires us to build giant space aircraft carriers. I will be sharing my progress here. Check out the blogs for moawr info tho if you would like.

I got the inspiration from this ship, which appeared in an old episode of Thundarr the Barbarian

Getting everything aligned for the build

After figuring out where everything would go I began getting the deck shape cut down.

Stay tuned for moawr

Yepper, mind is well and truly blown.

huh. All these years of opening up stuff, removing the packing forms and I never once noticed that, with some careful cutting and flipping them upside down, those paper maché forms make great mud forts/buildings.

Imagination activated, I can feel another project coming on. Now to start searching for stuff I can give away but keep the packing forms…

Wow! This is a really dangerous idea guys. There's no telling what one of you will come up with next now that he has planted the seed.

Today's progress covers sinking the command tower into the hangar deck and starting to glue the raft supports to the main ship.

I begin work on the Hangar Deck:

Just curious …

Are you going to make the tubes look like giant logs, or are you going to make them look like metal pontoons?

I was going to try and make them look like giant logs to start off, but I tried wrapping with string and making it look wood grain, and it just wasnt working out. So I have a different plan which I will probably be able to share in the next post.

Getting some more interior done, and got the deck buildings how I want them:

This is insane… -ly awesome!!!

I am about as unplugged from your genre of gaming as possible for a fellow miniature gamer, and yet… am wearing a big smile seeing this and reading the various blog posts updating your progress, which I will continue to do.

Thanks for posting!

Absolutely amazing what a coat of paint can do! I've been anxious to see it start taking paint. Very nice!!!
