NC&J: Papertrade #13 Viskotter GO-38

Like I said in the main thread for this challenge, I am jumping with both feet into this build,

And as such, I have completed the first part of the build, namely the eggcrate structure of the hull.



I am following the way the instructions are listed, doing the model in groups of parts
Like this part of the hull is parts 1 though 14.

Next up are the decks of the ship, making it look more whole.

Rick

Excellent beginning, Rick. But it doesn't look like a helicopter!

As for me, I am embrangled with Korean map name translations and will spend the day at the East Broad Top narrow-gauge railroad with older grandson, Don4, who has built a nice paper dragon. My efforts toward the contest consist so far only of sketching the Peder Skram on the back of a place mat at dinner two nights ago.

Rick, forgive my ignorance. I've never built anything with what you call an egg carton frame. This is of unreinforced card? Is it very strong?

I'll jump in and hijack to answer part of this. I've never finished a ship, but I have done a few waterline hulls with decks, and yes the egg-crate frame can be made pretty strong from plain card. I got started with Wilhelmshavener kits and that is the assembly method they used for all the ships I've tried. The aircraft carrier I built in high school was fairly high, and I could set like 10 pounds or so on it.
The recent Lutjens that sits 1/2 finished on my shelf took a bunch of the weight of my 15 lb. cat a couple times when I left it out working on bits and he walked across it.
It was when I got back into card modelling last year that I ran across framing anything with extra layers of card. It works, but you can do a lot and get pretty strong structures without it depending on the design.
