This looks amazing! I really wish that we could have Airfix models of GoI airships now :P.

Who else remembers Airfix? haha

This looks really good. Try not to ram it into things when you are finished.

Ya that may be hard to resist, such a habit ya know.

I built a airfix spitfire not too long ago, good basic kits that give you a great satisfaction when a build goes really well.

Been laying out drawings for the lower deck, honestly this is the tricky part coming up. Lots of ways to make it look not quite right.  I've already taken some libertys with certain details and relations...

Oh I figure the scale of this build to be aproximately 1/300.

Make sure you add the scrum bell on the lower deck.

When can I buy one?

I'm not even joking. I would totally buy a finished pyramidion model. So cool.

What guns do you think you'll mount?

I'm planning on building a gat, carronade, flamer, lt flak, and mine launcher.  The gun mounts on this model are magnetic so I'll be able to swap weapons :) and as I plan on building each ship, I intend to cast the weapons, when I make a goldfish there will be the sculpts for a hwatcha, and heavy flak

Part of the reason for these builds is looking for ways to make and cast the designs in resin. What compromises are required, and how complicated the models would be to build.

So far I have learned a lot.
