Waterworld Hellfire Gunboat WIP 3


Started work on the paddle wheel , I cast the ends with builders filler in a shallow dish to get the nice curve


Had this plastic cylinder handy turned out to be the right size


Building the rear paddle wheel support


Have ordered products to cast this case I used 2 glued together to make the long size I need


Working out the drive system found some R/C car drive belts with nice detail


Casting worked out great and now its looking good and getting bigger ! 60cm 


                                       Went on a casting frenzy and made all the tyres I need


Turned out great


Barge details spikes added


Rear drive system taking shape
