1/350 Academy Oliver Hazard Perry

Recommended Posts

Hello mates,

I just finished up the 1/350 Oliver Hazard Perry "fig 7" class from Academy which I received for Christmas. My giftor also included the White Ensign Models PE set and with a little scratching here and there I put it in a seascape. I also purchased some 3D crew from Shapeways.

Super looking build

The water base has really worked - do you mind me asking what you used?

No problem, I used crumpled aluminum foil over hard Styrofoam. Applied acrylic varnish overall and acrylic medium gel for the bow wave. Cotton for the white water. Sprayed color using acrylic artist paints.

Very nice result yet again 👏👏👏

 

It's a nice kit to build, shame about the supplied decals 🤔 The old WEM set is also a good enhancement, you've done an excellent job on the mast railings 👍
