I'd like to introduce to a steamy little tramp called Jennifer Dee. We've been spending a lot of time together recently and I've really come to appreciate her fine lines...
OK, that's enough hinting and silly innuendo. The "Jennifer Dee" is a 1:56 scale model of a tramp steamer for use in Pulp / VBCW gaming and is also my entry in the Nautical Bonus Round of the 6th Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.
Most of her is put scratch built using a range of materials, most notably blue insulation foam, various thicknesses of card and foamcore, timber and plasticard. The only commercial components are the anchors, bollards, life preservers and ventilators. These are all difficult to model quickly because of the compound curves so I elected to spend my time elsewhere because I knew she'd be a bit effort anyway.
Do go and have a look at all the wonderful entries and vote for your favourites while you're at it!
