Avast there!

To the way back machine once again, this time for something I have only ever painted once so far.  This was part of a batch of Micronauts ships.  Really tiny buggers!

Knowing what I do now, it would have been WAY easier to do.

It would be way easier to glue the pieces together now, and it certainly would be easier to paint.  I have learned so much about glazing ans such... those sails would be a lot easier, and have more depth.

I would also do more to reflect the 'ocean' colors on the sails... like this painting that I did many years ago :-)

I had fun making the water effects, done with sculpey.  I put the nameplate on there so that we could interchange the names of the ships... I couldn't resist having some fun with a crazy name. ;-)

Sailing away!!!  I do look forward to trying more of these in the future!  Stay tuned.


  1. That is a lovely looking ship. Really like the base. HMS Shagadelic-if only!! With names like that I would probably be more interested in naval gaming!

  2. He he... or with names like that, would you get more navel gazing? ;-)

    1. Thanks! Looking forward to doing more of that as well, testing out some newer techniques.
