BS2017 - Hammerhead Shark - part eleven

In this daily update, I have added five gun ports to each side of the main hull. I was planning four a side, but thought that five fitted better. There are also some deck details which like the gun ports were modelled with various thicknesses of card.

I estimate that there are over 60 separate or individual pieces used so far and construction is only about 60% finished.

Looks ready for paint at this point. Nice bit of scratch building. I don't think many appreciate how hard it is to maintain symmetry when modeling contoured surfaces. You've done that splendidly on this piece. Well done.

You're right, the biggest issue with this organic shape has been keeping the symmetry and the smooth lines.

I am hopeful that I will be adding paint very soon.
