    May 16, 2013, 2:27 PM - Scale Model of The Dawn Treader, from Narnia #1

    Hi everyone!

    This is a uni project from earlier in the year. It's a scratch built, 72nd scale model of the Dawn Treader from the Chronicles of Narnia. Any opinions on it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :-The rough shapes for the boat, cut in polyurethane foam on the band saw)Click image for larger version.

    Beautiful work my friend! I love the details, but you've really nailed the overall proportions well too. And what a stunning sail! I did my own version of the painting a few years back. You may be interested to take a look.

    Anyway, stunning work on the model!

    Thanks everyone! And just for the record, I did actually put the sketch model in the bath when I was shaping the foam to check the proportions were correct and that it was symmetrical ;-)
