31″ Nautilus W.I.P build – The Skiff

The skiff which came with the kit is in itself well done and a good enough representation to attach as is. But for me, it just needed tweaking to give it some added realism. To do that I  made the tiller arm, rudder and control wires using copies of the original studio plans to help get the scale right. Just to so there is an understanding on size the completed skiff is approximately one and a half inches long.

Because of its size, I used the skiff to gauge how the final colours would work on the model. What the picture on the slide show reveal is the painting from the first coat over the base coat through to the final dry-brush and weathering with washes and chalks.
