I think it's high time I made another big prop and this time it's gonna be the mighty Hutt's sail barge, the Khetanna

I completely modelled the whole craft and generated SVG files to laser cut a lot of the smaller parts; the slotted windows. the panels. interior etc, and print some of the other parts like the cannons, deck boxes.
Everything else will be scratch built from wood, much the same way I did the 1/6 Falcon

Here's what I got so far; first thing to make on a boat...the Hull

How long will the finished piece be? It was a cruise ship, so it was huge!!
Overall size at 1/6 scale comes out at just under 5 metres (16'), which means the ship they built on a hill, which they also built, in Utah was about 35 metres (100'). I suppose they were on a roll from episodes 4 and 5 and had the moola.

So, got the hull finished and primed, with the side panels on.

The blocks of wood are to mount the wheels to, for transport...the finished prop will be hung from chains
Next up, is flipping her over to start on the decks

Geek1138 does not do things by halves, which on this occasion.... One sixth is more than two times bonkers!

Such a great portfolio of old skool SW props man!!

So, this time next week then? (Joking - natch, kinda, should probably place some bets)

Don't tease him mateo_O, since he's a machine; he's capable of whipping that behemoth in no time:p(y)(y):cool::cool::notworthy::notworthy:

Can’t wait to see it finish with 1/6 scale figures running around the deck....
Actually, the diorama for this model is based on this image;
b50ae9a9c4d64e41b4d02de6d8870e5d.jpg

so not sure how many figures will be aboard
How long is this?...
it's just shy of 5 metres long
How’s that 1/6 super star destroyer coming along?
It's the next build after this one

Ok so a bit more progress on the barge...started detailing the hull with the doors and windows;

It never occurred to me before but there is no obvious way for Jabba to get in or out of this ship?
