Hi, in this instructable I show you how I made a pirate ship.

For this project I used cardboard from pizza boxes, egg cartons, hot glue, thread, super glue and paint.

It took me about 5 days to finish, working a couple of hours daily.

Step 1: Making the Patterns

I started by designing the patterns. I had some idea of what I want to create so I drew the profile of the ship, then the top view of the deck. The ribs of the ship were a little bit of a guessing game, knowing only two dimensions from the side view and the top view. You can see the result translated in 10 images containing the patterns I will be using in the following steps. All 10 pages are in A4 format (297x210 mm) so try to use them without changing the aspect ratio. My cardboard was 2 mm thick and used two pieces for each pattern, so the thickness you see there is 4 mm (except for the orange one which is the main line of the boat and made it in 4 layers, 8 mm thick). You may have to adjust some of the patterns if you use a thicker or thinner cardboard.

I had a lot of trouble, but I did it. my difficulties were not to possess the ideal materials. the cardboard was not malleable and I only had string. so the boat got a little dented. but I think it was reasonable.

I'm from Brazil.

Hello!, everyone.
I made this ship adding some details like a rudder, anchor, boat baton, pirate flag and emblem and the name of the ship. Thanks to creative mom for sharing her project.

All the patterns are on A4 pages. So you only need to download them from Step 1 and print them. A4 it's an universal format and has 210x297 mm

Porque ao clicar em baixar em pdf você pede pra verificar meu email?
Creative Mother (author)  carloscarf3 months ago
você não precisa baixar o pdf. Você só precisa dos padrões. Vá para o passo 1 e você terá um arquivo zip "patterns". Baixe isso

If this graphic It is possible be placed in a file to be downloaded and printed, it will be easy to implement the project because the drawing method is very difficult

Done. There is a zip file in the first step.
Thank you very much ..

Keep going .. :)

Incredible work! Would it be possible for you to upload the pages of the cut sheets by themselves? It is difficult for some of us to take them out of the pdf file and scale them to the correct size.
Really enjoyed watching you make it.
Did you have a measurement ship for details?

Love it.... I just can't download... it ALL wants me to buy something or download a program... where is the file????? so I opted out... sorry... it's too difficult for me to get the file to even start the project.... will watch video in slow motion... and make my own I guess...

But beautiful work!!!! Thank you for sharing!!!
Creative Mother (author)  annette2ya5 months ago
Hi, Thank you! But why would you try to download the whole pdf? That option is only available to premium users. You only need the patterns so just go to each pattern picture and download it individually

I like card models.
Scale models of buildings that I've seen somewhere.
Another favorite are the card models of railway buidings like Superquick.
Amazing just how strong cardboard can be when used the way you have. Looks good enough to sail.

I've done some wood sculptures that have ended up in museums, if that matters here, because I'm about to praise the high heaven out of this. Your eye for design and color allows you to enhance even the rough edges of the cardboard and letting it contribute to an aged look that ROCKS this boat. You've managed to let the raw material be proud of itself with good reason. That's just brilliant. Congratulations.
