Tiniest attempts a Nautilus model kit

Recommended Posts

Awesome !

 

Is the salon visible when the model is assembled?

 

Are you going to paint the black keys too on that organ?

This looks awesome even if I was expecting a cephalopod  instead of a submarine.

 

As it turns out BONUS CEPHALOPOD!

 

I know Pendraken makes some 10mm aquatic stuff.  I wonder...

I just came across the post this morning.

 

Depending on the size I could see this used in a Kraken diorama.

What size bottle would you use?

And before or after CW inspects it?

Does the kit come with Mr. tentacles?  Awesome start!!

And after looking at the original post again, I successfully made my perception check this time and read the text on the bottom-left corner of the box: "Includes detailed squid display base!".  

 

This really makes this cooler!

When it's assembled and lit, you can see it but it's still obscured quite a bit by the windows. Nope,not going to paint the black keys. I tried, they are hair thin and you really won't be able too see well enough in it to justify the frustration of painting them. I did some basic highlighting on the pieces bit didn't go too crazy for the same reason.

I'd say the kraken is a perfect size for a kraken diorama. It's pretty big.

Good start!  Any plans to light the interior?

 Yep, that's why there are three holes drilled in the top. It will get 3 warm white interior lights in the salon, 2 green lights in the alligator eyes on top, and spotlights by the windows. I think there's a spot light for the top too, I'll have to look at the lighting kit again. 

 

Thanks for all the lovely comments. Glad y,all are liking it so far.

      A long time ago (years, actually), those of us who didn't want to spend large sums on Ott lights used "natural" bulbs made by General Electric. These were bluish, incandescent, 60 watt bulbs that gave a more sunlike color spectrum than regular house bulbs.
       
      Technology has moved on and I'm looking for modern replacements. The incandescents get pretty warm, hot enough to deform the plastic on another lamp I use, and my new painting room gets pretty hot when my fiancé and I have 2 illuminated magnifying lamps going, plus a laptop, three dogs that hangout, an upstairs room, etc. I'd like to buy a pair of LED bulbs (or CF, if that's the only option) with the same light characteristics.
       
      However, searches of my local hardware store, Meijer, plus Amazon and even a general Google search have turned up nothing. I used to buy these at the local Home Depot, and I'm a bit concerned that LEDs can't do what tungsten filaments did in regards to spectrum. I am looking for a "standard" size of bulb and base, just like the old incandescent house lights I bought for decades before CF became a thing and then were replaced by LEDs running on house current.
       
      What is considered the replacement for these old bulbs? What do people use today, and where can I buy some?

      I ran across this "Make:" article in which Bob Richens explains how to mount LEDs in Reaper's Bones Eye Beast, SKU 77043, including teeny-tiny ones in the ends of the tentacles.   It looks pretty cool!

      Need somewhere to keep my dwarf army. Thought to build LED underground small garrison fort/outpost. 
       
      Will have 4 floors
      Magnetized bottom floor for large models
      And will try to stuff as much detail as I can. 
       
      Began with a wooden simple frame, and 2" PinkFoam. 
      Was debating to build up all details and then paint it at once, or paint it in pieces and install them into the box as I go. 
       
      Do to the nature of the LED lighting, and much uncertainties with LED lighting, I decided to craft it piece by piece instead of all at once. 
      Also, I do not have a good way to cover very large, hard to get to, very detailed area with coats of paint very efficiently, thus will take slower path. 
       
      Have some plans how to dress up the outside but want to leave that part for last.

      I posted this figure in the WIP forum to ask for critiques, and the critiques I received help me improve her a lot. Before I was really unhappy with how the figure was looking, and now I'm really happy with how she came out. I may still tweak some things, as she's for a painting competition and I still have a month to make changes. If you have any other critiques, I'd love to hear them!

      In order to be friendly to people on phones or other slow internet connections, especially given the large number of pics, all pictures are small compressed jpgs that link to higher-resolution, higher quality versions of the same image.










       
      The figure represents Fiona the Black, and is a conversion based on the old Fiona model and the satyxis sea witch.
       
      As always, comments, questions, and constructive criticism are welcome and encouraged!

      I went on a dragon painting binge a couple of months ago.  This is Sandra Garrity's Dragon of the Fire (or rather, its more casual cousin the Bones Fire Dragon).  I started with some thought of it being a desert dweller and it developed from there.
       
      WIP thread here, including a few false starts.
