Showcase: Carcharodons Drop Pod Finished


Hi all, stop listening to your Justin Bieber CD and listen up!
Heres a drop pod i finished last year some time. I have not put decals on as it was a test piece and didnt want to waste them, also there are imperial eagles stuck on by the previous owner right where i would have put them....

Anyway, as an excersice in weathering and airbrush work i both succeeded and failed.

The airbrushing was fine, i am looking forward to using it a lot more in future. The smooth colour transitions for highlights are awesome. however...

Although i think the hairspray technique chipped weathering looks ok, its FAR too much work to get a good effect and think i will stick with sponge chipping in future!
I only concentrated on the outside and not the interior as it was built before i got it and could not get to most of it so i bodged it all in an hour or two!

Anyway here are the pics,
