#902, "RE: Fantastic Model"
In response to In response to 30


  

          


Thanks!

I put some preliminary pictures of my hull on the forum, it's still quite rough because I'm trying to erode as much plastic as possible and it needs some fine grit action now.

Presently I am considering two other aesthetic properties of Titanic / Olympic from period photographs:

1) Railings (mostly foredeck and poop deck) are almost invisible in most pictures, yet highly visible on everyone's model. I wonder if there's a particular way to prepare photo etch so it is less visible.

2) Scale effect of shadows. In an attempt to firm up a classic visual queue of the prototype, I am considering using black or dark grey paint on some interior spaces to add contrast and "shadow effect". Some models have high quality paintwork in these areas which looks out of scale in display lighting. For example, the stark black window spaces in contrast with the white upper deck hull.

My recent trip to the hardware store means new project pictures will be available soon!

Regards,

Justin
