  1. Amazing, really like the weathering, brings it to life
  2. Thank you, I think I’m going to try one soon, just looking into the different methods. Yours looks very good!!
  3. Excellent, how did you do the base?
  4. Looks brill!!! How did you achieve the background, as in no corners etc? I tried a white sheet once but didn’t have the effect you have.
  5. Defo look into fibre optic as well as it wont matter to much if you have any unsealed seams, that was the challenge for me. have a look at the work in progress and there are steps i used, most worked some didnt lol
  6. Hello Hoolio, thanks very much, I used INFINI MODELS 110denier for the rigging, its the best ive used so far. think it was 10 quid from Sovereighn models. Its very easy to attach with a dab of CA. I think the key is even though its stretchy lycra, only stretch it enough to fit and that allows all the rigging to be a uniform thickness and flex when your wife knocks it as well!
  7. Thanks for the comments, the light shade was intended it’s warm white, didn’t know how many whites there was until I started the build
  8. Hello all, Spent the best part of 6 months putting it together and experimenting lol!! Hope you all like!! Sorry for all the pics but there is ALOT of ship!!!!!
  9. Excellent, cant wait to do water it looks great, epoxy??
  10. Well after printing out a few signs and a quick coat of gloss, i think that is it, Done!!! Its been just over 6 months but i think its there. Hope people have had a few tips and wont make the mistakes i did, If i could do anything different obviously i would but its still the best ive built and the first time ive used fibre optic which will come in handy on my future builds. Cheers for the support and thanks again Doc for the anchor!!!! Ill post a few pics in ready for inspection!!
  11. Gutted for you, ive been looking into resin but after some reading it is far from simple.
  12. Ive chosen not to go with the epoxy as I didnt want to chance anything going wrong. Ive gone with the base but customised it slightly by adding a switch and ive moved the sleepers further in which looks more uniform. Just waiting on the flags to finnish!!
