I measured out the angle in which the runway would look best and would leave me with some extra room for detailing the surrounding landscape. (Well, its a desert, so there's not much to detail and decorate..) I will make a small tutorial in the tutorial section about how I make this kind of landscape.
Anyway, here's what I came up with.
The SCA and the other hardware still isn't finished but now I have a place for them to go.
More after the jump.
|I used paint and birdsand (crushed shells and very fine grained sand) as medium to make the desert floor.|
|The runway was made of water proof sandpaper #400. it was much too dark all over so I had to find a way to lighten it up.|
|Chalk did the trick. Softly rubbing it out over the sandpaper.|
|The middle part, where all the planes burn their rubber, was made blacker with black pencils and charcoal. For measurement and just to see how it looked I put the SCA on the runway. The T-38 was already flying.|
|It looks quite real..|
|But it is attached to a pin.|
