back on board after a couple weeks of illness, started by adding flashing led lights to landing pad and painting started

started painting the supports, air brushed leadbelcher on a black base coat, it seems darker than the base coat they do and gave a mottled effect good for weathering as I progress, after a drybrush of leadbelcher base to bring out detail and a wash of sepia ink dry off with kitchen towel, next will be the detail painting and rusting

wanted the walkways to look like they were painted but time and weather have caused it to deteriorate over the years, how I did it black base, air brushed leadbelcher which drys with a mottle effect and darker than base leadbelcher which I dry brushed on randomly next after a coat of Vallejo sepia dried I started with sponging hellion green on then rusting was done with Vallejo browns, still got to do details and a final light sponge of leadbelcher but I think I have the desired effect, what do you guys think



also started landing pad, used crackle medium in places to see if I can another effect to weathering

The metal certainly looks grungy and corroded. If you're after an effect for multiple layers of knackered paint, then dsteingas has a great tutorial for it using salt weathering. I've used it for my Necromunda bulkhead and barricades and it is easy and effective.

This is looking great bob, it's going to be a really cool board when you're done. I especially love what you've done with the sea and supports, and the crane mounting.

The only thing that I'm not too keen on is the painting on the walkways - it looks a bit too blotchy for my taste with the high contrast between the remaining bright paint and the corroded/rusted bits. It's still carried off really well though.

Good job, I look forward to seeing more.

thanks, TBH I partially agree although the flash makes it look worse, I am going to give it another going over, thanks for input

I REALLY like the container crane kitbash. Excellent work!

Never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.
