Great progress Seth and it's looking really nice, I'm really looking forward to seeing the diorama too, a ditched landing in water is a great idea

Finished up the weathering this weekend.  Here is an example from the underside. 

[Do-17z-build55] 

Wasn't sure just how much chipping and such to do on a 1/72nd. Even with my smallest brush it looked out of proportion. I ended up using a toothpick and running it down panel lines. 


This is the image I am using for Battle damage, bonus it is a Do-17z hit with .303 rounds.

Highlight in aluminum

[Do-17z-build58] 


Starting the part I dread, the water. This really is make or break for the model. I've put down the base. The next layers will start adding waves and make it more uneven. I'm learning how to work with the resin as I go. It is very very sticky and if I'm not careful, everything ends up stuck to the base.  The next layers will also be more and more clear, trying to add depth, ending hopefully with part of the pilot and plan covered, but still being able to see the parts that are under "water"

Those bullet holes are looking very realistic, nice work Seth! I'm very interested in your water technique... would be interesting if you can post step by step pictures with a little explanation. It already looks awesome I can imagine that it's a little nerve wrecking to handle your nice model with all this stickiness :-/

I got more work done, the water is just about finished. Only have some detail work to do, hopefully can finish by next weekend (have to work this weekend)

First, how I am doing the water. I use clear casting resin that I put drops of paint in while mixing. This comes in two parts, that you mix. like 2 part epoxy. 

[Do-17z-build60] 

it is very sticky and gets all over. Luckily when hard it is easy to get off cutting mats and paint booths. 

I pour the two and add in the paint. they recommend pouring the mix back and forth in the cups to really help mix it up. takes about 4-5 minutes of stirring.

[Do-17z-build61]   
[Do-17z-build62] 

I then pour mixture on to the base and use a skewer to help shape it. The stuff really self levels so making waves/rippes is hard. I'd have to keep pushing it away from the sides and then when it was mostly hard, create some rippes/waves. It is recommended to only pour in thin layers because it heats up while hardening (about 5-10mm). It takes about 12-16 hours to dry. So I would pour in the morning and then even 2 hours or so stir it up.

[Do-17z-build63] 
[Do-17z-build64] 

Because it does self level so much, I made a couple wax molds to try to get some waves.

Finished up the pre-molded bits and final pour. 

[Do-17z-build66] 


Liferaft put in place

This stuff is really reflective, so it is hard to photograph. For the final I'll need to get a diffuser of some type.
