    The fins were dremeled out because I don't have a file that thin to get in there. Don't worry tho - that piece isn't glued in and I have another idea to sand down the inner edges so that they are completely straight :)

    The Sculpey you said you used, are you referring to the clay or the plumbers epoxy stuff?

    I use Sculpey clay that hardens when baked:

    For everything else I use Apoxie Sculpt because it bonds to resin, has a play time of a couple hours and is rock hard when it cures:

    Oh, okay. I forgot that you can bake that stuff to make it hard. When you said you used a dremel it threw me off. I've never heard of the apoxie sculpt stuff, never seen it at any hobby or art stores?

    Those greens on that P1 are just wicked, really like the layers of paint you used. Can't wait to see this one done.

    I spent a long time studying the Blu-Ray screencaps that Art sent me, and I tried to replicate all the same marks...not just the blast marks. Photographing this wasn't easy because it looks dark in some pics, and light in others...so here's a slew of pictures for Art:
