Here is where I am at on this. I was going to pop some sand down tonight, but I need to take care of a few things first. But I thought I would share a little base preparation with you.

Some XPS (extruded polystyrene, poster board and a nice piece of Ash!! :o

Time for a little fitting....

Foam has been sanded and glued and a little stain on the wood.

With some luck, I will get a good chunk of this done tomorrow in between snow removal from the Blizzard!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Ah Spud and names, ive been labeled as the virgin mother of the baby Jesus, but i digress, this is really great to watch how you achieve these textures, what do you use for your pigments to add to the base, is it pastels? just wondering how you are getting the effects, lookin forward to seeing the base come together, loving this cant wait to see you tackle another wingy here, the force is strong in this one [smilie=thumb.gif] [smilie=thumb.gif]

Hi Martay! Sorry if I loose my place here....texture on the base or the tank? Either way any pigments that I use are 'true' pigments...AK, some generic, some K4 on the tank. The base textures will be a combination of fine sand, plaster, pigments in kind of a mix-until-I like texture. I appreciate you hanging out while I drive through this. [smilie=banana.gif]
