I have built, based and now undercoated these little wooden ships. I have used pine pieces bought from and RC model store earlier, but have just realized this is a cheap and quick way to build steamers too.
The whole building line is for two smaller fleets of 3 heavy, 10 medium and 3 light ships.
L to R: battlecruiser, cruiser, light cruiser, destroyer. The plasticard for the bases was very easy to work with once I figured it's easier to snap than cut through.
Sketched up plans for the lot, I originally wanted 4mm thick turrets and 6mm thick upper decks but the store was out of them. Also the uhu glue I was using left some mess around but paint will cover it hopefully.
I will do two more carriers/motherships and two subs for each side then battle on.
