Introduction: Yellow Submarine in Cardboard!!!

Hello my beattlemaniacs friends!

This is my Yellow Submarine project 100% in cardboard and newspaper. It can be made whit a very little budget and a week of work!

The size of the model can be modify to attend your demand too.

Step 1: #1 Materials!

It's very simple, no expensive items at all!

Here goes the list:

- LOT's of cardboard
- A4 paper
-Glues: Hot, White, Contact
-Paint Brush

Step 2: #2 Preparing the Model

Here is the trick
I got this free paper model toy in the web. Whit Illustrator we can print the image in a tile range, scaling the model to your own need.

After print, just build up the model!

Whit the model in your hands, just move the form to a cardboard base.

Save the models after work, you can build another submarine in the future!

Step 3: #3 Building It

I'm sorry by the lack of images, but is quite simple, Just follow the steps inside the pdf file!

I recomend to use a stapler and lot's of contact glue to put the submarine togheter.

Step 4: #4 Finishing

This is the end...

Now you cut the newspaper in smaller parts, and whit a paint brush spread white glue over the cardboard.

This will give more uniformity and resistance to the piece.

After some layers...

It's time to paint!

To glow in dark light, I paint my one whit neon spray

Varnish its a great idea too!

To float in the pool i used some foam.

Hope you enjoy! =)
Sorry by my poor english =/

made as a school project with cardboard, chicken wire and mod roc. Each child and teacher in the year group has their picture in one of the portholes! Oh and the Beatles are in there too!! Fantastic template that I super sized using an interactive whiteboard, great fun to make, brilliant result!
