Tips on building a model Sumerian boat? Answered
For a school project, I'm building a model of a Sumerian boat, about 3-4 feet long.
(some quick background: the Sumerians created one of the earliest civilizations, and one of their inventions was the boat)
Google Images can provide some images to base a design off of: http://images.google.com/images?q=sumerian%20boat
It doesn't need to actually work or float, nor be very accurate. As long as it's not too fragile and has the general shape of the boat (which apparently resembles a canoe), it's okay.
It should also be made from cheap materials so that it won't cost too much to make. Any ideas on how to constuct it? My idea is to make a wire frame, and wrap that with paper or cardboard, but as I have little experience with this, I don't know if it'll work.
