I believe the troop no longer organise such activity so a few ex-scouts and I have decided to build a ship and took some pictures along the process so you guys could have an idea how a model ship could be constructed.
This is the way we learned from our seniors and had definitely improvised slightly.
Do PM me if you guys have any question .
Here are some pictures that I had taken.
|This is one of the first few steps that you should do. Obtain a thick wood in the middle to act as the keel.|
Obtain a big plank and cut them to "U" shapes or any shape you want your ship to look like.
|Next you may add the mopsticks to the keel where the mopsticks will act as the masts. Gentle reminder , traditionally the middle mast will be the tallest follow by the one behind(the last one) and then the front which is the shortest.|
|Ensure they are symmetrical, straight and at 90 degrees angle.|
2. Thick wood
Anyway the bow of the ship isn't shaped yet. Sorry but you guys have to wait for the next update !
