Okay everyone! What's your project for the Fantasy build??? I couldn't make up my mind so I'm planning on 2 projects...a SteamPunk inspired Airship and the "Ark" from When Worlds Collide.
Blueprints of the Space Ark
A lovely block of wood that needs to be round....
Taper to the engine end and beginning the nose taper.
The fuselage is completed next the wings and tail.... And the Main engine thrusters fitted into the tail recess.
Next time I build a classic 1950's spaceship I WILL remember there at these things called dowels... that are already ROUND!! and not start that a square block of wood!
Wings, vertical stabilizer and tail fins cut.
Wing and vertical stabilizer sanded to shape.
Wings and vertical stabilizer are all set next the tail assembly. Tail assembly carved and shaped.
Now to cut the slots into the fuselage for the wing assembly to slot into.
Whew! Lots of work completed today. Next the small wing engines and the 'blisters' on the vertical stabilizer & tail assembly tips.
