|Pass thru this egress, assuming you can open it.|
And here is the final piece:
|Nearly birds-eye view.|
It went so quick that I didn't take many 'work in progress' pics until nearly the end.
|Patina and Rust.|
I drybrushed Patina over the entire model.
Then I picked out the areas that were clearly metal support structures and painted them with Indian Red which is sort of a terracotta color. These were Function vs. Form features such as I-beams, plates, wall sections etc. and I wanted their rust to contrast from the patina/copper look of the rest of the model.
|The old roof.|
All the hatches, vents, control panels and consoles, as well as hinges and latches, were all liberally washed with Orange Ink. I applied lines in some areas to give the appearance of rusty run-off stains.
|The rusty hatch.|
|Rusty doors, controls and panels.|
|Rusty areas on top.|
|Patina and copper touch-ups on the doors.|
After a few touch ups on the front door, it was now done as well. I love all the details the sculptors put into this model. The control panels were a lot of fun to paint, as were all the Saint statues. I couldn't help but wonder if there are design notes in the studio somewhere that might reveal the names of these forgotten holy characters...
|Saint Bannon vs. The Led Zeppelin Hermit.|
The project was a quick and fun one to do. I wouldn't mind doing another one, but I will have to see what the shop has laying around.
