I open a new topic on 3D creations.
I have been working for a few weeks on a mecha that I did not have in the idea of realizing, it is the skull.
This ship that appears regularly in the show comes from a mysterious civilization. Everything around him is mysterious, as is his captain and the bond he has with force one.
It has an aspect of a ghost ship, somewhat in the style of pirates of the Caribbean of the 1980s.
A ship that’s been buzzing.
So before I got into bigger pieces, I thought I’d try the skull.
I felt that the hull was going to be difficult to model, I was not disappointed.
The model has many parts to assemble and paste, the shell is in two parts the small size of my printer tray.
The sails have several pieces and remind by their masts those of a junk.
The assembly is complete. I have not yet started painting, it is a work in progress.
Painting is a fundamental element of this model. Not obvious but interesting!
Concerning the base, I was inspired by the coat of arms that we meet on the planet M13 where this ship originated (if I am not mistaken). These coat of arms are found on Captain Halley’s bust.
For the photos, I helped myself as usual with all the screenshots that we find in the show, I did not see any photos from the top, little on the front (for the calculation of the width).
I also reproduced the machine guns at the front of the ship (from a model box), the machine gun was used by the captain in one of the very good episodes of the show.
I used plastic profiles and brass profiles for fixing the sails.
Time for Photos
