Fade To Black

So the next step in the inexorable plod toward completion consists of working the panel lines with black artists' chalk. I drew a line across each panel line then went back and rubbed it in with a rag (a discarded t-shirt). The chalk made the panel lines pop along with the recesses of the topside grating. It also helped mellow the roof brown paint. The top half has been worked, the bottom half is next.



About Me

The first movie I saw in a theater was Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (1971 re-release). The first grown-up book I read was "War Fish" by George Grider. Built hundreds of plastic kits growing up. Saw an article on The SubCommittee in the mid 90's and joined. Began first foray into radio controlled subs in 1998.
