    You're idea, and a great one too!

    Nice handeling boat. And the visibility was not bad for a lake. Did you use the 808 camera-in-a-tic-tac case? Good stuff!

    You did wonders with the awful I-53 kit, my friend.

    Thanks Scott, you are correct in what you say about the roof. I didn't even think about the roof when I was weathering the boat.

    I guess a large flat area like that with all sorts of things the birds could sit in/on and out of the way of human contact would soon get very messy. Add to that that because it was flat any water left up there would evaporate and leave the salt behind.

    Mix the salt and bird droppings together add a little heat to open up any faults in the paint and away it goes.


    Any other ideas?

    That is great work. You asked for comments so maybe a little weathering on the
    towers roof. It probably is right with the deck weathering but in the video it look
    closer to a large freshly painted roof. Maybe foot path wear.
    It really does look great.

    Hi all, I picked up a cheep Cam corder today and gave it a test.
    The video is a bit boring but it will give you a good CLOSE look at the i25.

    There is video of both sides as well as a top view.

    Let me know what you think I can do to improve the model.

    Just enough weathering. I see so many over do it. When I look at photos of the original subs, I see light weathering for the most part. Once in awhile I see heavy wear and tear. This looks fantastic! Cheers!
