The under water part

So, here's the coating for the base, which will eventually end up in the water. I protected the glass parts (which will allow me later to see where i put the resin) with some Tamiya masking tape. All the paint is rusty coloured of course. Several coats from redish to almost black paint. Including some run offs done with too much diluted paint. I should add some texture this evening. All the upper parts are painted too, but it got dark before I could take some picture, so this will wait for a coupla days now :)
