Starting the paint…

Re: Custom Replicas 66 inch Nautilus build-RC


Started the paint job today after adding more parts and making the wheel house removable to add figures, repair and replace lights if ever needed. Magnets did the trick and pins to remove the rake.

What’s left is to go over the boat by hand and add weathering, streaks, bare metal effects and other details but we are safe to go ahead and add the lighting tomorrow and the windows. So far I’m sticking to my daily quota.

Here are some pictures of the paint so far. All acrylics paints were used and the entire paint free hand with an airbrush.

Here are the pins that remove.

Those other parts that were added I over looked.

70 bucks worth of paint and thinner.

Outside in the shade of the late day.

Lighting tomorrow!
Steve
