It is indeed looking smart, i like it!, and  also the replica of the ancient artifact, not being gold doesn't  bother me ,I'm  not too particular about an exact colour match.

It is looking good, though.

I think the "Settee" area gives an idea of how small she really was.

Work started on wheelhouse

P1100528 (Copy)

 

Looks a bit floppy here but I'm lhoping to laminate the sides from 3 x 0.25mm card/clear/card. As the wheelhouse is quite open I wanted the frame visible on both sides. The added bonus being I can slip the glass after painting.

The recess for the glass can be seen here on the left hand piece

Success , slipping the glass in

Gidday Kev, I like what you've done with the interior, and I think that is a clever idea with the glass. Regards, Jeff.

Looking good, Kev! 

 

That shattered glass pane looks very realistic.   What caliber of gun did you use?  :mg:

 

Seriously now, how did you make the look of damaged glass?

Thanks John,

Re damaged glass I borrowed the idea from @Andy Moore

https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235064589-oshkosh-m911-c-het/page/2/

 

Basic idea, after drilling a hole I scratched out the broken pieces using a needle held in a pin vice. To make it stand out further I used a brown wash. Think I'll dark green on the next

 

HTH

Love that broken glass effect Kev

Andy Moore's work is always worth checking out for tips and inspiration (AFV and his Sc-fi).
