RMS Titanic 1912, 1/1000 Academy
In this long holiday I've been stuck building new things, especially I got a short break with any aircraft things and having some interesting tries.
this is my first ship model, Academy's 1/1000 RMS Titanic with soft epoxy base. looks familiar with this? yeah, that's the technic used in Wonhui Lee's amazing underwater submarine diorama series. after I saw his diorama I got a thinking to made this sinking titanic scene.
Academy's kit was much more than that scale. I just colored some detail but nothing added to more detailing.
And the Riggin'... hell yeah I've really enjoyed it... I rigged with Lycra fiber following academy 1/400's instruction manual.
Mixed Epoxy liquid with hardener and put a drop of clear blue and smoke color.
pour into transparent acrylic case and it took 48 hours for harden. and gel medium layer was added for wave.
In first try, acrylic case was broken while epoxy hardening phase due to epoxy's weight. and that was A disaster cleaning all of that. and ship is still stained with it in some part.
I've made this for decorating my desktop in office. in final photo I added title on side with self printed decal. I paid hours for select font 🙂
