Shipwreck 1/350

August 23, 2019 · in Ships · · 16 · 2.9K

Hello everyone,

while browsing I came across a photo of the wreck of SS City of Adelaide, and instantly I knew I had to give it a go. The build was rather fast by my standards, as I was more interested in trying new things like resin for the sea and making copper wire trees. A very old Revell kit served as the wreck after a make over with my Dremmel. All weathering was done with oils. I think I overdid the leaves on the trees but all in all it's quite an eye-catching model.

Hope you like it!
