Have added in the columns, Just used balsa. Gets rid of that blank look.



Undercoated with rattle can primer


2 coats of Tamiya Deck Tan. This is a great concrete colour.




Now I can start the weathering.

Looks realistic from all the photos I've seen.

All that tedious work paid off Rob, you've got a great looking platform for your diorama there. And yes, that color made a fine looking concrete color.

Looks good, and when weathered, will look even better!

Thank you Frank, Pete, Louis, Greg, Mike, Carl & Bill.
Yep, I'm very happy with it. That Tamiya deck tan is my go to colour for concrete.

I've now weathered it. Did an overall black wash, to dirty it up & highlight the shadows, then used brown and orange for some colour, and then the lower half was given a green wash to represent the waterline.









Regards Rob

Rob that slimy weathering job stinks, but I mean that in a good way.

Thanks Mike, Michael, Frank & Louis.
Yes slime is good.

Have now made up a base for this all to sit on. Just used some scrap melamine board I had.
I carved in concrete joint lines, and weathered.
Have also added a footpath to the top edge.



Wall section in place




I've started framing it to give it a finished look. Just balsa sheet.
Now have to make a caisson lock gate, and keel blocks for the sub to sit on.

Regards Rob
