1:48 Pilot And Deck Crew - Sculpting

Recommended Posts

Since I Have some Free Weekends this month....Decided to make a Simple Base For This one


Already Scratch-built a simple "Mototok" type Tug out of cardboard pieces and some guitar strings to go along a hand painted Deck Base






And last week , I started sculpting a couple of figures out of epoxy clay

Sure, I can buy some online... but it seems more fun to make em myself.... and its super super super cheap :D 


So,here we go

The supplies : Indians would really appreciate these, I believe ;) 

The Colours are mostly basic, so any colour i need...I have to mix them myself ...super cheap..love em :) 

Epoxy Clay... dries hard, water soluble initially...i also use it for filling gaps in model joints...extremely cheap... Love it :D 

clear resin epoxy, colour inks...for making transparency... Don't have clear acrylic paints here ...not for cheap atleast...so i make my own work around... comparatively cheap.... Works!!! :P 

varnishes...the usual stuff
