Ah the sponge seems like a nice idea. I will have to try remember that for trying to make an ocean diorama myself. :)

Looking forward to seeing this built Frank! With revell 1/200 offshore tugs?

Well, I do have a 1:200 Heller Smit Rotterdam I might reuse for it. Anyway, this is a really large model, and I guess I´ll have to be able to store it in sections ...

Frank Spahr
Thank you all! Yes, this must be one of the un-coolest service aircraft ever, but it did what it wa sbuilt for, and did it for quite along time, so the engineers at Fairey must have done something right.

Thanks a lot to both of you, it´s been a fun project and I like the somewhat different look of a grey ship with some colour on it!

A great model. I like your sea scape. How did you do the turbulent water at the hull. Never seen that before.
25. January, 07:50
Frank Spahr
Thank you both a lot! The water around the hull, after internottent spraying of green, I added more white wall paint, stippled carefully. After glosscoating the base, I added some more gloss clear acrylic gel and drybrushed that after curing using white artist´s oil paint. HTH Frank
25. January, 09:46
Peter Griffin
Great aspect, love the bow down attitude! Very, very convincing.
25. January, 09:49
Frank Spahr
Thank you, Peter! I added some in-progress photos of the base. I have none showing only the white wall paint, but I think there are enough of those in the albums on Making Waves.

I used the same technique for my Loire C130 project and was really happy how good it works, even in 1/72 ;) . The only difference is that I used Styrodur insulation foam, which is very dense (dt.: Styrodur ist sehr dicht und hat sehr kleine Partikel, tolles Zeug) . That means that you can even sand it if necessary and cut it quite easily. But if you use Styrodur dont apply too much heat on one spot over long time, because this will cause the foam to create a solid top layer which is almost strong as plastic and can hardly be corrected. Always keep the flamer in motion, like an airbrush :).
28. January, 09:42
Frank Spahr
Thanks, Stephan! I also use Styrodur, insulation board from the hardware supermarket. I also second your recommendations on flame use!

Fantastic schiff! What's not to like? I really like the details that bring the scene to life - the boats tied up, the anchor chain, outstanding camouflage, and subtle weathering along with the water effect of course contribute to making this a masterpiece. Congratulations.
