Hi all i got this last christmas and was waiting for some inspiration. I saw some pics of the wreck and inspiration struck, i started this about a month ago and here is where i am now, added some salt then a light grey wash to kill some of the colour, then knock some of the salt off add another thin sandy wash, knock some more salt off then a thin black wash. I feel it's getting there now.

Hi all can you guess what this will be.

Started on a background

Image

Put a blue whale in it which I've drawn to scale just to show how big the wreck is, i realise it don't look that great but I'm going to put dirty blue wash over the background so that should make it fade out a bit.

I'm really enjoying this build. Looking forward to my birthday and my next project (not a ship)

Hi all well I thought I could use this as the submersible used to light and film her, unfortunately it is totally out of scale so i will have to find something else, although I see that the effect will work quite well.

Hi all started weathering the deck.

Must say I'm a bit disappointed Tamiya don't supply and decals with this kit

Trouble with doing a wreck is now I have to find out what the inside of that turret that's had the armour blown off looks like.

Hi all built some more of the superstructure and added some more damage to the decking

I know there is no debris from the wreck in the immediate area but I'm sorely tempted to use some artistic licence and add some.

Hi all well I've got lighting that seems more right scale wise, got another one of these to convert and ordered 2 more slightly different (just for variety) to add.
