Dudes and dudettes, welcome back to my little aquatic jar lid experiment.
Last time i showed you what i had in mind for this vignette and how i made a base for the model to sit on. Since then i have been hacking and sawing, claying, puttying and sculpting away and i think i am just about ready for the painting phase.
First off, after the base hardened out i took my chainsaw…
Joking,…. actually i figure sawed this little critter and smoothed the edges with a file and sandpaper….
Then i proceeded CA gluing the proper half (i caught myself trying to file the rear of the sub…..doh) to the base at an angle i thought looked convincing:
Scary bit one completed… so far so good. Next up was modelling the water streaming off the hull, decks and out of the floodholes. Pretty daunting task doing that in clay and putty. To facilitate the drying process and to nip any shrinking in the bud with some putty inbetween i worked in stages not trying to do the whole lot in one big clay lump:
Finally arriving at this:
How is that to you guys? Honestly now….!
