More work on Rebuilding the roof

I rebuild the from of the ship using layers of grey card. One of the reasons I got this toy ship so cheap on eBay was that this part of the ship was missing – it should have had flaps that closed over where the nerf gun used to pop up.

The roof is rebuilt using layers of grey card welded together with hot glue. To get the slope I want I make each layer slightly lower than the one below it ( like an Aztec pryamid) then fill in the stepped slope with filler.The roof is rebuilt using layers of grey card welded together with hot glue.

Next I have to glue the circular turret gun housing back in place – easier said than done as I have removed a lot of the structure it used fit into.

Not pretty, but filling any big gaps with a card frame, my hot glue gun comes to the rescue yet again. I can tidy this up once I get the ship's room walls built and I can see how much space space I have to play with.Not pretty, but filling any big gaps with a card frame, my hot glue gun comes to the rescue yet again.

Not too, bad... I have to cut away some struts and card to let the roof sit flat again with the bottom of the round turret taking up more space than I expected.Not too, bad...
