More Tweakage…

The Greebling continues.
I’ve added some bulk to the barrels, a lot of screws and some nice fittings here and there. They add visual interest and complexity as well as break up the flat featureless surfaces. I’m quite happy with the results so far. Filling and sanding is almost done.
I’ll take some detail photos before applying the base coat of paint, so we can compare later.

See what a difference a couple of cool days can make.


How do you spell greebling?

I spent 5 hours in the workshop today greebling, adding little details to the gun prop. It’s something you can spend hours doing without achieving anything dramatically obvious.
I’ve added a few things, like adjustment knobs, screw heads and fittings here and there to break up all the flat surfaces. I don’t want to over do it. Also, I’m working on tidying up the whole thing, filling and sanding here and there and removing any little defects.
It should be ready for a base coat very soon now, we’ll finally be able to get an idea of what the finished thing will look like.

More pics coming soon.
