Showcase: Cruel Seas Airplane Re-Basing

Apologies for the iPhone photos. Wasn’t happy with the base that came with the British Bristol Beaufighter Mk Ic airplane from the Royal Navy Fleet box for Cruel Seas, so I decided to try something different. 1/8″ acrylic rod superglued into a drilled out 60mm MDF base. Applied some layers of Vallejo Water Effects Texture (Pacific Blue) over airbrushed blues, then I added some washes and highlights for waves. My first attempt at water effects, so I’m happy with the results. Still need to finish painting that boat though!

Tutorial: Bronze Statue

All-in-all, took about an hour (aside from dry times) to complete.

  1. Stynylrez Black Primer
  2. VMC bronze airbrushed on leaving the recesses dark
  3. Citadel Nuln Oil Gloss all over, followed by Matte Varnish
  4. Drybrush of VMC Bronze and VMA Aluminum mixed
  5. Citadel Nihilahk Oxide applied selectively in recessed and watered down on the model
  6. VMA Dead White airbrushed from above
  7. Citadel Valhallan Blizzard applied lightly.
  8. The plinth was various greys airbrushed on with the above bronze effect applied to decorative bits.
  9. The basing follows my previous tutorial.
