Carcharodons drop pod finished.

Hi all, stop listening to your justin bieber CD and listen up!
well the drop pod is finished. i've not put decals on as it was a test piece and didnt want to waste them, also theres imperial eagles stuck on by the previous owner right where i would have put them....

Anyway, as an excersize in weathering and airbrush work i both suceeded and failed.

The airbrushing was fine, i'm looking forward to using it a lot more in future. The smooth colour transitions for highlights are awesome. however...

Although i think the hairspray technique chipped weathering looks ok, its FAR too much work to get a good effect and think i will stick with sponge chipping in future! (see the previous post for an example of this..)

I only concentrated on the outside and not the interior as it was built before i got it and couldnt get to most of it so i bodged it all in an hour or two!

Anyway heres the pics,


  1. the airbrush realy does give a smooth transition, looks good.

    1. Thanks mate, i'm really pleased with it. do you have one?
