I'm very pleased with how this came out, because I really needed a ship this size. You see, I was rebasing all my other resin scratchbuilds and with the whole fleet lined up I realized that nearly every ship was 55mm long, +/- about 5mm. That kind of uniformity makes it hard to distinguish which are the heavy battleships, which are the medium cruisers, and which vessels are the light corvettes. I plan on focussing on making small and large ships for a while, since I have a plethora of medium craft.
The pictures below show today's ship fresh from the mold, with only some soap and water clean-up. I still need to take a knife and sandpaper to the edges, and of course base and paint. Before the paint however I will use polymer clay and epoxy to sculpt the exhaust nozzle section. I find that the ships look about 300% better with a nozzle section added.
|85mm now, but will grow with nozzles added|
