Okay guys it's midnight and I am spent. Have been working on the mudline for the last 6 hours so I'd thought I'd leave a little work in progress photos. The materials I used for the mudline are as follows:
Light Modeler's Clay
Railroad Scenery Cement
Fine Artist's Sand

Here I am building up the clay to approximate demensions. I covered every inch of the board with clay for uniform appearance. I super glued the edges down when it dried a little then trimmed the excess from the edges.







Once the clay set to a fairly firm state I started applying several layers of sand. I used a spray bottle and rail road scenery cement for all the coats. I got some residule sand on the model but this wipes off fairly easy with a fat paint brush.











Okay now here comes the hard part coloring. It's more like painting a canvas I think so you can get creative with the colors. The initial base coat is a light over spray of dark tan. I tried to get a two tone look from the lighter sand so that it would be darker in some areas then others. THe darkest areas for the whole mudline is close to the wreck were rusticles and other debris has fallen since the ship sank.









Once dry I applied a light over spray of Red/Brown primer around where the mud meets the model start the rust tint. Then I applied a thick coat of Italian Dark brown to establish a very dark base coat. Like I said get creative and paint away. Once this coat was dry I apllied a thick coat of rust creating a dark two tone effect. Then I applied a light coat of testors flat brown over these colors to lighten them and blend them into the dark tan better. THe end effect is as follows. I'm gonna finish the weathering phase tomorrow and will update this post when I am complete with this phase. The paint was a still a little wet when I took these photos. But also something to think about here that I would recomend. Get you a couple of cans of Model Master Lacquer Overcoat Lusterless (Flat) #1960. THis dulls all your colors and even adds one more level of age to the appearance of your model.









This shows the display case I am going to use. Not trying to advertise here but this website http://www.casesforcollectibles.com/ has display cases for just about any size model you got and are fairly reasonable with price. THey deal in acrylic plastic which means you don't have to worry about any glass breaking if you ever have to move and if the glass ever discolors or frosts you can simply purchase a new one minus the base so you can really get exactly what you want.
