This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
So what are those things? took me quite some time to figure out when i was building my Izmail PT boat, indeed it's the place where the sailors put some signal lamps while sailing at night.
So here's the chimney, it's a lump of plastic glued together basically -the trick is that it's very thin plastic so it will deform itself quite easely -the shape will not be that round anymore but it you observe some boat's chimney's you observe they take some bumps quite easely.
Products heads up
I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.
It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)
The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices
That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
