Waterworld Hellfire Gunboat WIP 4





Full primer stage and test fitting of all parts




Pre shading and first base coat of Dulux Rust Effect it has a nice texture


This should be fun these chains are tiny and fiddly
*swearing*


Success 



Why the hell not !
 I will put the smokers mother ship name on the back of the barge
I may or may not go with the Trump flag on the truck I think it has the same dark whimsy as the use of the Exxon Valdez name . I am not a fan or even American just to make that clear lol



Having not ever done much rust I have now done lots rust , basically the whole boat is a rustbucket


Small deck items gathered and painted


Getting close now onto the base and the water effects ,after looking at many ideas I found a great method on youtube, if you follow what the guy says its basically foolproof


Very happy with this method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TwpB7sVMn8

Waterworld Hellfire Gunboat WIP 3


Started work on the paddle wheel , I cast the ends with builders filler in a shallow dish to get the nice curve


Had this plastic cylinder handy turned out to be the right size


Building the rear paddle wheel support


Have ordered products to cast this case I used 2 glued together to make the long size I need


Working out the drive system found some R/C car drive belts with nice detail


Casting worked out great and now its looking good and getting bigger ! 60cm 


                                       Went on a casting frenzy and made all the tyres I need


Turned out great


Barge details spikes added


Rear drive system taking shape


Deck items
