This project is for a SOC-R Riverine Boat. The image below is scaled down, but will print out at about 7 inches/17.8cm . The hull is about 90% done and I still need to make the engine deck, driver's rear deck and driver/radar area. It's not an exact copy and it is also a water line type of model, but I did do a quick colored bottom for it. I'm not making guns for this, but Ebbles Miniatures does make a set you could add to this.
May i ask why, being the bottom at the bottom ( ;D ) you choose to not put the tabs on it but on the top? I could have go in the opposite way (so the top piece with the hole attached to the sides, glueing them to the unprinted part of the bottom, and then gluing the printed "floor" on top of that tabs....) but i'm surely missing some design reason...
There are a few advantages to doing it this way: -One is that the holes for the rope lines are much easier to cut out. -The top pieces is a sandwich fold for extra strength. A sandwich fold makes it much easier to align the two pieces together. -The bottom piece has the engine box part attached to it and the alignment for the box really needs to be done after the bottom is in place with the walls. -When attaching the top part to the walls, the glue flaps are much easier to clamp (See the Alligator clamps).
I found construction to be easy. Although I did add chipboard to the model. This adds more strength, but meant that I had to do a lot of extra trimming to get the inside pieces to fit. If you build it without the chipboard you wont have to trim the paper. I need a day or so to go over the file.
It will hold between 11 and 13 minis with 25mm bases.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
