What a wonderful build. I am enamored by the detail you have put into the project. I have one question if you don't mind, you spoke of a taping technique for creating the small shading effect on the hull. Are you doing the base gray then overlaying a tape grid pattern on top then adding a light misting of white over it the get the shading effect?

I have attempted to use other methods to add more detail to the hull but what you have done is by far the best I have seen.

Would love your advice on proper shading technique.

Thanks and regards,

Hey,

Yes I use a tape method to produce the oil canning effect on the hull. Like you said, first the base grey, after that I start with the horizontal lines, which are tediously masked one line at a time, then sprayed with the base grey lightened with white.
After all the horizontal lines are done, I start masking and spraying the vertical lines one by one. And yes it's a tedious process and would prolly be easier with a self made specific mask. After all this is done I mist coat another lightened grey shade to tie and blend the effect down. This usually with reference in hand as it's not equally intense in every area.

Here's a few shot of a different project for examples:


The bow area only has the horizontal and vertical lines without the mist coat.

The stern with mist coat already applied.
