The Amber Bliss.

Recommended Posts

The Amber Bliss.

 

The port side AG unit is playing up again and we are leaking photons all over the place so we have had to stop at the Great Oak waypoint to make some minor repairs. I’m going to have to replace that cheap Margrathean AG unit as soon as we get to Wistow port market.  I should have bought that Honda unit when I had the chance 3 cycles ago; you know the old girl is costing me in reapers than I’m taking in profit lately. A few passengers and crew were happy to take the jolly boat down to the way point to have a look at the Great Oak tree, apparently it’s a real tree, not synthetic. It must be one of the last real trees that you can see outside a high society collection. 

 

The Amber Bliss is  a 1/100 scale model from a world were ships have been converted to fly in the air not on the water, the idea comes from the artist Ian Macque and his fantastic flying ships art work. This kits started out as a Revell  1/108 Harbour tug boat and with a bit of sticking and gluing I ended up with the Amber Bliss, it’s not perfect some of the lights don’t work, some of the weathering is a bit hit and miss and I still don’t get on with Vallejo chipping solution but other than that I really enjoyed the build and I’m really happy with what I have ended up with.

Some reference for you

I like the model. Not so sure about the flouro-pink background though- sorry. 😐

That's OK, it was an experiment back ground. It kind of over exposed the  colours a bit but makes model standout but not sure it I will use it again though. 

 

Cheers all for your comments, collecting parts for the  next one.

I really love these hovering boats and can really relate to the concept from the artist. You model is quite excellent. One of the guys at our model club did a 1/48 scratch build of a very similar Remora which has always delighted me whenever he brings it out at shows, so this new arrival on the forum is a great treat for me

 

superb work there

Well, it always looked spot on to me so I'm not that surprised.

 

Congratulations - a well deserved win.

Love it! She's a great looking ship. And so what if some of the lights don't work or the rust a little odd and patchy, that's just called realism!
