Dade W. Bell shares one of his latest creations with us, a 1/350 scale diorama of Germany's Prinz Eugen.
This is a commission Dade had built of Trumpeterís 1/350 Prinz Eugen. It contains photo etch and barrels from Flyhawk and deck by Artwox. The masts are custom pieces made from brass. The model retains its full hull so that a close look in person reveals the hull disappearing into the depths of the water (itís hard to see in photos). The water is a 12 step process based around the use of silicone. Gunze Sangyo, Mr. Color and Vallejo paints were used along with AK Interactive products used for weathering. The photo etch was attached with CA glue and our own Gatorís Thin Blend product. This build won Gold and Best Overall: Ship at Maraudercon 2016.
Model Shipwrights would like to thank Dade W. Bell for providing photos of his 1/350 scale Prinz Eugen.
