Warship made with cornflakes packets


I decided to make a model of a ship and came across this picture of a model of HMS Vigo online:

The plan is to make an radio-controlled version, but first I needed to design it. To do that I found a CAD package – Delcam PowerSHAPE-e. This is the hull:

Cut out the bulkheads from various bits of cardboard lying about waiting to be recycled:

Then cover the hull with tissue paper and varnish:

Add some superstructure:

And paint:

It’s ballasted and waterproof so it does float nicely. The things people do to keep themselves out of mischief eh?!
