Well I've finished up my second devil fish as of yesterday :D With is one I managed to pin and magnetize the hatches so that they can open and shut the interior is painted albeit not as well as I would like but it was my second time (my first being a total bomb :shock: )

I've managed to snap a few okay pictures of the new fish (mind you they are glossy only because I have a coat of future floor wax over it before I spray it with Matte Sealer :neutral:

Looking good. Why do you put floor wax on it though?

Nice dude, very nice and slick looking, just like Tau should look like.

Those engine pods look awsome!. Really nice idea about the magnets as well.

That floor poslish idea should be interesting. Please explain because it looks great.

Thanks all I'm glad you like it :D

As for the future floor wax it helps with putting on the decals they stick better to the glossy surface and the decal edges blend in better also the future floor wax acts as a gloss coat for that extra protection.

So if the weather holds today I should be able to give it a good coat of matte sealer.

This was my first attempt at doing doors on the devil fish So I'm lucky I was able to pull this off I've had this devil fish since February the hardest thing for me to find was a small enough drill bit :? so when did find some I bought 2 (just in case one breaks) the top hatch is also pinned so it opens and closes as well :mrgreen:

Awesome model, clean and simple. Looks better than the normal yellow scheme that is out there.
