There were three final tasks remaining to finish off the fortifications. The first was to glue all the rivets in place, which takes a lot of time. However, it always looks neat!
For the parts that are not metal, I had to make some pock marks. This would be the second element that I needed to add.
I took that same very sharp exacto blade and chopped out some chunks of various sizes. I also added some bullet holed by pressing a ball point pen into the foam.
I added a few chipped out areas to the walls, using that same super sharp exacto blade to that I would not tear away the board from the foam.
This gives you a nice view of the rivets on the walls.
The last task. Out comes the trusty Oxide Paste.
The oxide paste does far more than just fill in gaps. I allows me to create a rough texture on what will be metal surfaces to create a rusty, encrusted look.
It also lets me hide unwanted texture, such as the painter's tape. I learned that on the Tomb Kings army board project.
So, I will be painting this thing up, which is actually going to be another kind of experiment. Stay tuned!!
