|Building realistic models for rail-marine operations|
Applying scratch building or kitbashing techniques to build a realistic barge and a prototype tug for a rail-marine operation. Learning Points: Learn the basic nomenclature of marine vessels and the application of appropriate details to make a water craft model stand out. We’ll follow the steps of using a basic photo of a marine vessel as a guide to scratch build the hull of a Canadian Pacific Lake tug. This technique can be used for just about any vessel.
