|Ready to meet the tripods.|
|no lifeboats yet, no davits either, but the guns and cables are there.|
|As usual, the small blemishes and roughness of the work seems atrociously apparent on these macro photos.|
But of course what you see here is so much enlarged that you could hardly see it with the naked eye.
|I always love to do some small depth of field shots with these tiny models.|
Then, the cables. I thought at first I shouldn't do them because in this scale stuff rapidly looks too thick. But I was fiddling with some leftover iron yarn from the Tripod's tentacles and realised I could twist the yarn in the opposite way to free a couple of thinner strings. Maybe that would do. So I untwisted a piece of string and re-rolled the obtained thinner strings. They became quite thin and didn't look bad at all. I CA'ed them into place.
Lastly, some smoke. What is a sailing steam ship without smoking pipes? Again, Fiberfill is your friend here. Just pluck it a little, make it a little thinner here and there and roll the ends on one side into points to stick into the chimneys.
|Mirror waterline. That soon will change.|
PS. The diorama already has been finished, but I leave that post for now serving as a cliffhanger for tomorrow.
See you tomorrow!
