Painting the Hull

I’ve been working on the hull around the bow and jaw… so far I’m very happy with how the gun metal base is taking the weathering effects I’m applying.

Hull Bottom Painted

The bottom of the hull has been painted black and varnished. I should now have no further need to turn the boat over so I can begin detailing the deck.

Launching Stormboy Painted

This last week I have been painting the Stormboy who has just lifted off from the take-off ramp. I was looking forward to painting this, firstly to see how the smoke trail was going to turn out and secondly to have my first attempt at using a technique called OSL. OSL or object source lighting is where the reflected colours are painted on to areas surrounding a light source giving the illusion of a glowing light. The effect is mostĀ noticeableĀ in the final photo of this post. Overall I’m very pleased with how it all turned out.
