“Spring in Fjord” with MS Midnatsol, 1:1200 Revell
It’s been a long time since I’ve post my last article. I was checking every new article on here every morning but had no time for share my new model. so now I have several models to show you.
MS Midnatsol in 1:1200 scale. 11cm long. small but nicely detailed model from revel new tooling in 2012.
From when I first saw this kit in local shop in two years ago, I always dreamed to make Norwegian Fjord diorama. after two year of modeling experience, I thought now I can handle this subject well. then I finished this in 3 weeks of work.
The main reference is “Geiranger Fjord” in Norway, Seven Sister’s Waterfall. the waterfall falls from 400m of height.
the whole base is scratch built. Styroform body painted with modelling paste, soft epoxy water base with acrylic varnish wave, piece of sponge and baking soda snow. one thing I noticed after, there is no professional modelling materials in this set.
In the spring, snow on the top start to melt to make waterfall and because of it’s high height of the cliff, the plant and trees put forth buds from down to upside. I colored this different in gradation vertically to express this scene of start of the season.
Thank you for watching!
