Virginia Progress

Posted in Uncategorized by Andy Hall on September 8, 2010

Upper works blocked out and a preliminary texture on the casemate.

Guns added, as well. For now, they’re eight 9-inch Dahlgren smoothbores on the broadside, with a 7-inch Brooke rifle at each end. Two of the Dahlgrens need to be replaced with 6.4-inch Brooke rifles, but I need to be sure of their placement first.

Update: The data cards from the old Yaquinto game Ironclads show the two 6.4-inch Brookes as being the foremost broadside guns. Makes sense.

    So you’re building it, digitally? How do you do that?

      3D modeling software, specifically Rhinoceros. I did one of Virginia years ago, but started this one over from scratch.
