Here is the dedication plaque for the USS EURISKO.
It was created out of all the names of the people who supported the EURISKO during the build.
This one is for you !

Here is a quick update,
The name is now easily visible, when I get my airbrush they will be made in contrasting colours .
Also started the fun work, kitbashing the german tank ..
Short but nice I think !
Hi there, here is an update of the build so far …
Here is a rough idea of what I am going to build. Its for studying the materials and techniques of modelbuilding and airbrushing before I am going to try something bigger (like a multiyear project – see the future builds and concepts section).
The left side is panelling with only a minimum of elevation of the letters from the base, where I will tryout scribing and airbrushing panel lines and weathering.
The right side is 26 mm deep and will be used to tryout real modelbuilding techniques. Bought a 600+ part german military vihicle that i will kitbash for the parts. Maybe if I feel like it I will incorporate a laser and some leds.
Wood working the base …
Some nice room to build some parts into ..
Covering the wood with styropreen sheets of 1 mm thick. I must practise this some moer as there are multitudes of cracks and overhanging pieces. This will need some serious putty and sanding .
Spent a whole afternoon sanding, filing and putty-ing the letters and corners in the base. Not the most exiting work. Also did the rough panelling on the left side. Its a 1mm thick sheet cut into panels onto which the next layers will be placed.
I am contemplating if I should file the sides of the panels down to have a more smooth transition onto the underlying sheet.
