Make a Plastic Model Battleship - Part 3
Now we build up the battleship by adding layers of decks and walls.
And as we are adding decks we add in the various sub-assemblies that we made.
And some parts like this set of big guns is assembled so you will be able to freely rotate it. Nice little extra detail. That little cap you see on the bench will glue underneath the deck allowing the guns to rotate.
There are some more sub-assemblies that you make and add including the command tower.
Once everything is built on the top of the ship we then finish it off by adding the details under the hull. Just a few things here including rudders, props and drive shafts.
And that's it. We finish off the assembly by gluing together the upper portion and the lower hull.
And that's it! It comes with a little stand you can set it on.
Make a Plastic Model PT Boat (PT-109)
Fun little project and easy to build. I take you through the steps of making this military torpedo boat. And the commander of this boat was John F. Kennedy. I tell you about the amazing story of this boat during WWII. Make PT-109
Make a Model Submarine
This is a wonderful little plastic model kit. I chose this one because it has the open side so you can see all the various stuff inside the sub. Fun skill level 4 which means it is a challenging build. I also have a video. Make a Model Submarine
