I thought a Siluria should be a bit smaller than a Dauntless, considering it doesn't need space for torpedo or lance systems.
Next, I cut out the basic hull shape from plasticard, here it is with a Dauntless for comparison. Slightly shorter, but a bit taller.
Next I went to work on the prow, when I make a prow I first cut out the shapes I want for the profile, the top, the bottom and the back. Then I fill this with milliput. Once that has cured I sand it all smooth.
The next thing I did was make the "wing," a common feature of Imperial Navy vessels. It's practically all plasticard and strip styrene, along with some Aquilas and GW kit antennas.
Today, I started out by beginning to bulk up the hull. I added width to the rear section, added the vertical "wing" and the engine exhausts. No details yet.
I also added the piping to the prow, along with some etched brass eagle's wings. I decided against an eagle's head or skull on the fact it's an older Imperial ship and they tended not to have such things based on what is shown as chaos ships.
I still need to finish detailing and fleshing out the hull, and add some details to the engines. I will have to detail the bottom of the prow as well. The most major thing I have to do is to build the bridge. In order to duplicate the weapons battery, as well as this ship as I would like more than one, I will be getting a casting kit from the hobby shop sometime soon.
Hope you enjoyed the post, that's all I have for today.
