Hi guys -
yes, today some pictures!
Tim -yeah....good and the bad that comes with experimenting....yes...I'll keep doing so - you never know when something cool might happen -
Jerry - you nailed it exactly! I should not have experimented, and instead put down thin layers....
So, the result this AM before I left for work was the mush is getting firmer, so maybe a day of getting baked without me fooling around with it will net some good results.
Meanwhile at the office, another lunch time post - sort of a step by step - please have a look:
Before dropping a perfectly good model in the muck - I want to be able to find the right place again on the layout, so some tape was used to bracket the location
I didn't want to need to install these guys once the kit was mounted, so there you have them....
and more guys...and below - the pumice underway - mixed with some vallejo color:
nice huh? after the above photo time to get serious, and to drop your kit into that mess....
above, you can see - my tank looks to be on the mud, and not in it...so:
As above, you can see I kept adding my fake mud....
And as you can see above, the surface of this has dried to look right. However, just beneath is a mushy mess just like the real thing - let's hope it solidifies - as I want to add water...but need to/will wait...and before that, maybe more mud too....we'll see -
thanks for checking it out -
