Not had much time for modelling lately but I've been able to get some work done on the Meng Models Lexington.

Although the hull isn't finished yet I wanted to get her on her base and make a start on the sea. Plenty still to do but this is a great exercise to get in some practice.

 

Thanks for looking.

Had a few minutes to add some texture to the base this morning. The texture is a mixture of two types of Galeria gel. One is a smooth structure gel whereas the other has a fine grit in it. This I think gives a good surface if you're trying to represent a wind ruffled finish. It was quite wet when I took the photos but it dries fairly clear.

Looking forward to getting on with some weathering.

I wasn't too happy with the finish on the sea so I added a layer of Galeria Structure Gel to smooth it out a little.

It will probably need one two more coats to even it out a little more before I can add the wake etc.

Had a chance to do a little more to the Lexington.

Applied a very thin dark wash to begin bringing out some of the details. Next steps will be some highlighting on the raised detail then it will on to the flightdeck and the air group. Hope to be able to move on to the seascape then we'll nearly be there!
