Bantha II cargo skiff from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (Scratch build)

For a long time I have been wanting the Skiff from ROTJ. So I went looking for a model. I could not find one, but found lots of pictures I could use to build one. So working with a few as a base, here is my build. I used the top view for the floor. I then added ribs to the bottom to get the contour I wanted. I then skinned it. Texture is not easy for me. I then layered the floor tiles and added the island. The Skiff is 31'-2", the model is 10". so that makes the scale approximately 1/37.

Update

I got some more done. I built a frame work for the nose, then glued the card stock on, then trimmed the card stock to fit. To me, this was easier then trying to draw the part, cut it, then praying it fit. I did this all in that horrible orange rust texture. I was able to make a much better texture, so I overlaid both the nose and the bottom. I also finished and installed the handrails.

What material did you use on the framework? Backing board?

Thanks all.

Vermin_King: I use a product called Ram Board. It is 1 mm thick 38"wide and comes in 50 and 100 ft rolls. I buy it at Home depot, but have seen it at Lowe's also. I have found it on amazon as well. Its not expensive, I paid $28.00 for the 50 ft roll. It's used in construction like a drop cloth, to protect the floor from damage. It works very well for models too.
