Scrounged and Salvaged Ship.
My first ever Terragenesis Comp entry.

I recently came up with an idea for a Warhammer campaign scenario that requires a ship/boat. Since it will mostly be made of reclaimed materials and scrap - it fits in.

A scrounged and salvaged ship - made of scrounged and salvaged materials.

I guess "Welcome aboard" seems appropriate (groans all round).

Doubling down on the theme, I like it.

The junk:
Cardboard box leftover from Christmas presents

Thin card from some leftover political pamphlets

At my last job they gave me this whole box of business cards - despite the fact that I never had anything but phone and email contact with anyone outside of my office....

When we moved into our new house, there were all sorts of useless wires running around the place. I kept a few random lengths from going into the skip.

When I built my gaming table in my basement I was left with this small off cut of wood and this leftover piece of dowel. I threw them into my toolbox knowing that they would one day come in handy. Also pictured are some ice lolly/popsicle sticks (sadly these are not recycled).

The foil from the top of a wine bottle

Leftover spru - from various kits.

Bolts and washers - Literally found in the sweepings while I was cleaning my garage. I have no idea if they belong somewhere important - they do now!

Anyone recognize this? No? Not even the Brits? The Lawgiver MK1. It belonged to Psi-Judge Anderson. She met with a terrible demise at the paws of David the cat. I placed her weapon in my bits box where it has waited patiently for over 8 years.

A bubble tea straw (courtesy of my wife) a pair of corks (also courtesy of the wife) and some super-glue lids, which I kept when the glue ran out.

A cheese cloth. My wife was throwing this out (because it's full of very large holes). She used it many times over to make Paneer. She actually said to me - "this would make some good rigging for your boat". I replied that the boat didn't have a mast - but I took it anyway as another idea struck.

I found this bracelet underneath my table, one night, many years ago, at the Crocodile Lounge in NYC. I'm deeply sorry if it belonged to you. Trust me when I say: It's going to a better place... Many better places.

Started building up the shape with the corrugated card using the political pamphlets for the more complex pieces (curves etc).

Started cutting up the business cards to make details to add to the base.

Began gluing down the detail parts.

I am forced to use purchased craft supplies today. Sure - they are ice lolly/popsicle sticks, but here in Buffalo (this time of year), such things are not readily available for salvaging.
Progressed with the detailing:

So far so good. 

Did you come up with an idea yet?  
I braved the frigid cold of my garage this morning to us my scroll saw, drill press, belt sander and a hammer...

Stripped and twisted some of the wire to make some rope:

So now I have:

BUILD DAY 5 (Yesterday)
Added more railings more steel plates and lots of tiny rivets.

OH! - And paint!
