At the moment I am doing some work on an older model, the Proton-M, which still needed a decent fairing. Why, I'll tell you later this week.
See sou soon,
|This is what I am working with now. The silver / black part is new.|
|Ready to meet the tripods.|
|no lifeboats yet, no davits either, but the guns and cables are there.|
|here in a close-up view, you can see that the yellow-orangey colour of the fiberfill has been|
spattered with the black indian ink. The flakeyness of the spatter also gives it more body,
like there are little burning fragments in the cloud. It really needs time to dry, the fiberfill is like
ultra thin plastic fibre, and it doesn't really absorb the colours. So the ink dries in little clumps
on the fibres. The 'soaking' of the stuff in ecoline however, did give it a more equally spread colour.
|The tripod is held here by its yet unfinished legs, pinned into a cork on which I put a weight to keep it upright.|
