I’ve decided to build a 1/285th scale USS Wasp LHD-1 and fill it full of Micro Armor vehicles and aircraft. I started the project by buying the Gallery Models 1/350th scale model kit with the intention of cutting it up and stretching it in length and width to make it sort of 285th scale. After thinking about this for a while I decided to just use the kit as a reference and draw all the parts of the model in CAD and then scale them up to 285th scale and just scratchbuild the entire thing.
Here is the kit that I bought as reference.
This is the drawing I made of the flight deck. On the bottom you can see the deck in 1/350th scale drawn directly from the model kit as a reference, above that you can see the deck blown up to 285th scale.
Next I started working on the basic superstructure. Below are drawings that I made based on the plastic model and then scaled up to 285th scale. The main superstructure will be 3D printed and then additional details will be added by hand.
