This is a resin kit I got a few months back. Scale is 1/35 and it was a real learning experience to paint all these metallic colors. Oils were used for the patina. I added a bright white LED in the cockpit area, and replaced the clear resin "eyes" with punched clear styrene discs to better view the interior. All the fins are photo etch and were soldered together. The base was a lot of fun to make. I drew on my SCUBA diving hobby as inspiration. I wanted to have a lot of color and just played with the oils and such. I added the wagon wheel to fill some dead space and I think it worked out well. It was crudded up with a thick mixture of od green pigments and alcohol then sealed and a dark brown wash applied. The seaweed is cut from sheet aluminum and formed. I used it to hide the support for the fish. The coral is pillow foam stretched and colored with Vallejo acrylics and glued in place. I will be taking this to Wonderfest in KY next week for display. Hope you guys like it. "Q" happy.gif

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
