Sampan boats constructed for Hammerhead show

Sampan, most common type of small boat in Chinese waters, constructed in a variety of designs. Some have sharp bows, and nearly all have large sterns, with the after portion of the gunwale and deck nearly always raised. Sampans are usually rigged for sailing, sometimes with two masts; otherwise they are rowed with large sweep-type oars. They are usually open or partly decked, with a shelter or cabin aft. In Japan, Hawaii, and Taiwan, a powered boat has been developed out of the traditional Japanese sampan, with a flat-bottomed midsection.

Thought i might just contruct 4 Sampans, created from a black foam board with coffee stirrers, bamboo skewers and basic wire for rope effect, all 28mm scale, these will be added to the game at the Hammerhead show.

You're a machine a Nevermore, do you ever break from making terrain and accessories...what does your partner say!!!

Anyway very nice work as usual, the wire effect for nets is especially good.

However where are the bow cannon? :D

Cheers!

I am a speed painter Capt, i don't hang around doing anything in my life, can you see a cannon on the Sampan boat, take aim and fire ... lol, can see the Sampan overturning so funny, i did think about it and thought narrrrrrr ... but i might create a Junk and fit one on that, never done one before but i think i could get my head around it, watch this space .. got others projects going on at the moment like creating a Italian church for my friend and a bridge to go with it .. then i might take photos on how to create a Junk ... no plans, just off the cuff ... properly end up like a piece of junk !!
