Photographing/presenting this against the black background is a really good idea too since it also adds the appropriate somber/reflective/stark mood to the scenario/event. :)

Hi

Thanks for the comments.

The paint job is done, and the rest is history....literally!

This is the naked truth:




And this is the embelished version,  with some more "artistic" poses:











The last one, trying to capture the atmosphere of that era:





Thanks for watching. Hope you like it!

You not only managed to model the bomb in great detail, but you also captured the mood as well.

This is an incredible demonstration of your skill, Antonio. It's like a history lesson in scale.

WOW!  What they said man!  I feel like it needs to be a black box with a small spotlight on it from above (like in a wall mounted display case in a museum) to really emphasize the mood and power behind it all.  Very good job  8)

Beautiful work ( if you can call an A bomb that) I agree with Cliffy, black box with a spotlight.

I'm still thinking a shadow box is the way to go.  In fact, I have a good stock of steel wire I can send you if you need it and it would be invisible,painted black. They are leftovers from building Battletech minis and intended for making antennas. They were also a good way to tell you had enough to drink because they strck deep if you weren't careful !

Hi

Thanks for all the comments!

Thanks for the suggestion of the shadow box. It would be really cool.
But now I am engaged in other projects (the WALL-E evil alter ego, for instance!:)), so I wil have to postpone it.
