I started the largest and most ambitious project so far. I hope I'll finish it, which is not at all certain (my drawers are full of infinite models)

DIY pocket orks battleship. This is not a gaming model, but rather diorama or LoS blocker. Planned dimensiones: lenght - 50 cm, hight - 50 cm, widht - 40 cm. I've started a month ago and estimate it will take me about six months.

Like all my other models, it's a great improvisation (I do not make plans and schemes, just take a parts and glue and... done!)
Hull was made from styrofoam, covered with cardboard and HIPS. Towers made mainly from HIPS. Nothing is finished yet

In the meantime I make the hull sheating. This is the most arduous and boring part of work. But necessary: details makes the final effect. I did not like cardboard sheating, which I did before. So I covered it one more, with HIPS.

Flat surfaces are made from High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS). I use sheets of varying thickness and colors. Black is basic, because I have a lot of it. I got a huge sheet from a friend who makes advertising banners out of it. Main advantage of this material is that it can be glued with ordinary modeling glue.

It's nice to read such comments Thanks.

My ship was unstable, so I added stabilizer with vertical start propellers (HIPS, part of toner cartridge and GPU fans).
It will be painted separately, and glued then, so I painted this part with primer. This model is too big to paint all the elements joined together.
By the way I painted the side zzap gun.

Oops... My mistake. The recoil will be larger or a few gretchins will die

If we're talking about gretchins: the first crewman is on board. I had to paint it now, because its cabin will be closed and will be an integral part of the hull. Windows will be transparent, so I used clear styrene and masked with Tamiya tape before painting. If something goes wrong I will paint windows too.

I do think that the name on the ship is a little large though, seems to detract from all the other details in that area, it would probably look great on a large display base though if that was something you were planning?

Are you going to give the ship a big mean looking anchor? A big grabby thing for docking or boarding could look awesome if you have any space left on this beast!

Construction works are going to the end. I hope that in the next post I will show you the whole ship assembled and primed.
In the meantime, I made railings for the main deck. I waited with this to the end, because I was afraid that they would break when manipulating the model during construction. I also prepare places for the assembly of turrets. One of the photos with railings shows the launcher base. Last one is base for newest cannon. The assumption is that all possible elements can be painted separately and attached after painting.

First turret is painted. I've been experimenting with salt chipping, I've never used this method before. Even pretty nice

Just read through all 4 pages of orky magnificence!!!

Truly a scratch-building masterpiece!

Your salt chipping looks nice, one of the best ways of chipping I've found too - nice and random, especially if you use some different sizes of salt grains.

Looking forward to more updates!

Salt chipping seems to he working out very well. Lovely work! One minor nitpick: the inside of the rusty bit pointing up is still white on the inside (unless another bit will fit in there, of course).

Recently, I do not have much time to paint. Progress is therefore small.
I painted the skull for a ship's prow (the yellow eye is a spotlight), steersman and radar screen.

Excellent work, the level of detail and the work you are putting into the individual pieces is inspiring and breathtaking bud, mammoth task. I am going to be working on a big project or two myself shortly and this is really making me think about how hard I need to push.

Slow and steady wins the race, you're doing great work! For the ork's skin: if you want to take away some of the chalkiness (some people like it, some don't), a mix of 1/3 green wash, 1/3 yellow or brown, 1/3 water will add a veyr nice glaze and bring some warmth tot he kin.

Unfortunately, the pace of work has recently slowed down. After six months it is still far from the end. Working on this model takes a lot of time and I'm bored
Either way, progress is small

I applied a layer of rusty colors to the hull. All paints from Vallejo - base is flat brown, the others are: hull red, cavalry red and orange brown. The whole is secured with a satin vallejo varnish on which I will apply AK Interactive chipping medium. The bottom part of the hull will be light blue, top yellow. Unless I change my mind

A tempting thought. But unfortunately I'm not playing, I'm just building models

Hull painted with base colors. Now the most time-consuming part of the painting job: weathering

Love the chipping on the yellow, looks great with the rust.

I think I’d work on the ork skin, looks a little chalky, I’d honestly try a light purple wash, do a test, a treat on green skin.

I know but I don't like paintig minis. Above all, I am a builder, this is part of the modeling I like the most. Painting characters is a necessary evil for me. Yes, I know it sounds like heresy here

What motivates me most is that I know well: if I put it aside for a moment, I will never come back to it. Removing something from the workshop is a death sentence for the project... That was the case with many models so far. Among others scratchbuilded gorkanaut, finished in 95 percent, and several tanks from the Second World War. So I try not to give up

It depends on the definition of "entire thing done" There are only several elements to be finished, visible in the picture below.
But some things broke off when painting, I need to fix it. Ship needs a vignette/base. For now, I did not even think about it. And last but not least: crew. I've painted only one ork so far. I have a dozen or so
