Naval War HQ created the topic: Making smoke templates

Here's a little tutorial on how I made my smoke templates:

I started out by outlining the templates using the Naval War template (available in the counters & templates file) as a jig.

Next I cut out the templates and drilled some holes at the corners, I took care to put the center hole a bit back instead of at the utter edge of the template, since the front part needs to overlap any ship that is making the smoke. So I dont want the support to interfere with the model.

Next I added bolts as supports

I built up the smoke a bit by adding some polystyrene:

Now I covered the whole thing in PVA glue and added cotton balls to make the smoke:

Finally I gave everything a spray of black paint, making sure I didn't saturate the cotton.

Finished the supports with some black and blue paint and all done!
