Work in Progress: Desert Skiff model

I am currently working on a "desert skiff" paper model in 28mm scale, for the Cardboard Warriors monthly figure hoard. It is inspired by similarly-named vehicles found in Star Wars and in the game Borderlands 2. Here are some pictures of a quick and dirty build of the template, just to check if everything is fitting together.



That flag pole did not look good in the model so it will not be an option in the final model. For a few more pictures, check this thread on the forum...

Edit: here is the template for the model, in Inkscape format.

Oh, nice work! Looks like a great base/start. (I like the idea of a steampunk version, or maybe add-ons.)

I wonder, I suppose it would be possible to use the template as a sort of pattern for a plasticard version, if someone wanted something a bit sturdier than paper/card.

Thanks! I agree, a steampunk version would be interesting...

I have updated the post with a link for the template in Inkscape (.svg) format.
