Build Log: Seaspeeder & Dockpainting, weathering, diorama, making water/waves The 2 main kits for the kit-bash These are pieces you may want to remove, as they could easily break off (and they don’t mix up easily). Completed layout. Nearly the entire base was scratchbuilt. White base color was chipped down to the primer. Then I added more chipping fluid & masks. Sprayed in a green/grey custom color. Masks removed Another shot Red highlights added Beginning to paint figure Used Tamiya putty to make barnacles Completed base. Used post-it notes to airbrush gradiants on the flat dock surfaces. Nearly all the panels were highlighted in some way. Most effects made by acrylics. Sponge chipping on most of the surfaces. Beginning to pour the 2-part resin water. About 7 layers were poured, each one very thin and tinted with color. Seaspeeder embedded and frame removed. I had to slice off the water that had crept up the sides, which left it rough. Applied the Water Effects with a brush and toothpick to wick the stuff into waves.
