More Bass…ilisk

Not much to update on Project Bass-ilisk, but I have continued on with the firing platform. I reinforced underneath with more sheet styrene and glued the treadplate to the top. Tonight I should be able to cut down the treadplate to fit correctly.



The treadplate needs to be glued as tight and as strongly as possible as I will be trimming and sanding it to match the correct proportions.

Glued Down!

Glued Down!

Everything is now nice and tight. I have those two little bare spots by the gun platform that I have to figure out what to do with. I may just build it up with some putty. The over hang of the cannon breech will be there, so I don’t think it’ll be too noticeable.
I still need to figure out if I’m going to do anything else help explain why it looks so different from the other Basilisks (besides I’m cheap and got burned on a sale…).

Oh, and I still need to figure out what I’m going to do for a gun shield. I have the paper model files that I can use as a master, but I don’t think I can get the curve right, so I’ll probably make something else.
