|Marine having a bit of a look up top, just for scale.|
|Front "mouth door" finished & installed. A cheap camera |
aperture used for a door.
|These are the two base platforms that will keep this bad boy off the deck.|
|As you can see, it's not a pretty sight underneath. Copious amounts |
of hot glue were administered, all in the name of mad science.
|Not sure if you can place this section, but it goes just behind the |
conning tower. I cut out the boss in the centre of this hole,
enlarged it to take a 25mm base, installed some mesh & put a
plastic ring inbetween to fill in the gap.
|Magic health drink containers installed. Their jet engines silly!|
|Double the yogurt power!!!!!|
I'm pretty happy with how the bases turned out, their only visible if you get down low to the table, apart from that angle they cannot be seen....just what I was aiming for.
I'm kinda worried about the painting process at the moment. That mouth section really should have been painted as a subassembly & then installed after everything had been painted, but I'm too impatient to see it fully assembled. If I painted it before installing it I might have faced the chance of running into fitting issues & could have ruined the paint in the process of making it fit....thats my reason for fitting now anyway :)
Next up will be fitting a control panel to the conning tower, armaments to the various sections & then I think she'll be ready for the detailed work i.e. making the drink bottles look like engines, running cables over the exterior of the body, hiding/ including the stub axles in the design.
The beautifying proceess continues........
Bye for now.
