Welcome in my brand new website!

Well, i am really happy about it, it’s got all the modern comfort and is also really very light to load.
So here is a pretty sight below, that picture scared the heck out of me when I first saw it more than 25 years ago.
Maybe now it’s the time to  do something about it.

Arranging the 100mm bubble

Then i cut a platic striped the same height as the upper section and glued it inside the hole and recovered the whole with some Magic Sculp (look at the picture). Well I am quite late for this blog, The next instalment will be on friday :) And thanks Charles!

Fixing the 100mm '"bubble'"

Then i used a small saw to cut the right portion to be embeded in the hull and fixed it using superglue.

The 100mm gun space

Ah well, on my original plans I had overlook some big bubble on the top of the hull which is the place where one 100mm gun (5 inches?) gun was fixed. So well, here i vacuformed the place using a light bulb of the right dimensions!
Now will I make the gun itself?
Well no.

Pebeo's outliner (Cernes relief)

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)

Flex Pad on horse sculpting

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
