Scratch Built Airships - Miniature Wargames issue 487

The latest issue of Miniature Wargames (issue 487, November 2023) has an article written by me showing how I built a couple of airships inspired by the Amazon Prime TV series Carnival Row. The blimps were cut from insulation foam with plastic card gondolas and painted with a range of acrylic paints before being based.

The models are built to a nominal scale of 1/600th and mounted on to 60mm round bases.

For more information, pick up a copy of Miniature Wargames, or check out this link.

The final image shows the second airship alongside a bottle of paint to give an idea of the scale and size of these models.

Those are great!

I knew they would be small based on the description and the stated base size, but the picture with the paint bottle really drives it home.

Thank you. They were great fun to build and paint.
