Jason's Argo - part one

This particular model was built over ten years ago as a commission for Grand Manner. The model was meant to represent a small sailing/rowing boat and based on a number of illustrations showing reproductions of early Greek ships or Jason's Argo. The model is scaled for 28mm/32mm miniatures

This image was taken from a children's story book and became the main inspiration when planning and starting construction. The finished resin model can still be bought from Grand Manner - for more information, see this link

The main hull was built up over a sandwich of plastic card with foam, wood and Milliput used to define the sleek shape.

Detailing was done with more foam, plastic card and Milliput epoxy putty.

I will add more work-in-progress shots over the next couple of days but for now, I hope that you like seeing how I work on these master models.

That's very impressive. I would like to build a junk for a pulp game so I am always interested in the boat builds of others.

I've never built a Junk, but I have built a Dow. The model was never cast in resin so I only have a couple of work-in-progress images.

If I can find them - I'll post them on the Blog.
