Hearts of Foamcore part 2

More progress on the "cruiser" this evening.

Front and sides of the turret built up from plastic card. I'm in two minds as to whether to add a roof or to leave it open topped.

Then I added portholes to the superstructure.  They are costumier's eyelets set into holes bored into the foamcore. You can also just see that I've added a piece of brass tube in the stern.  This will allow me to swap in different nations' ensigns as required.

Next up I want to find some bits of plastic and a couple of lengths of chain so I can crudely represent the anchor chains for'ard.  Oh and I need to decide how to represent crew access hatches on the superstructure.

Coming along nicely. Looking forward to seeing how you tackle the finishing touches.

This is fantastic and will look superb on the tables of Crisis Point :-)

Looking good! Maybe you could add a 3/4 roof to the turret, leaving the rear 1/4 open?
