Hi all added some salt then a light grey wash to kill some of the colour, then knock some of the salt off add another thin sandy wash, knock some more salt off then a thin black wash. I feel it's getting there now.

Hi all can you guess what this will be.





Started on a background



Put a blue whale in it which I've drawn to scale just to show how big the wreck is, i realise it don't look that great but I'm going to put dirty blue wash over the background so that should make it fade out a bit.





I'm really enjoying this build. Looking forward to my birthday and my next project (not a ship)

Hi all well I thought I could use this as the submersible used to light and film her, unfortunately it is totally out of scale so i will have to find something else, although I see that the effect will work quite well.

Great idea.  Maybe try getting one of these:  Takara TMW 1 / 144 world ships no. 3 Mir 1



It would s still in it of scale but maybe could be used in a "forced perspective" setting.

Awesome weathering and a cool project. Love the sub above her as a way to light it - very unique.
Will be watching this one

Hi all started weathering the deck.





Must say I'm a bit disappointed Tamiya don't supply and decals with this kit

Turret ring teeth damage is excellent touch.  Bet was messy when main turrets departed ship.  Neato build.  :smiley:

Hi all added some damage to the superstructure 













Trouble with doing a wreck is now I have to find out what the inside of that turret that's had the armour blown off looks like.

Well the turret is for one of the Bismark's 150 mm-SK-C/28 Weapons so that is what you are looking for.  The below photo of one of the surviving similar mounts from the Gneisenau currently at Stevnsfort in southern Denmark might be of assistance:
