Hasegawa 1/1500 Sace Pirate Battleship Arcadia 24 (Skull remake)

Hasegawa 1/1500 Arcadia Models

 I still have something to do before I start painting.

 Basically, I have not changed the form of the kit. But I have only one thing I would like to modify the shape. It is the skull and crossbones of the big features of the Arcadia.

 This is the skull that comes with the kit.

 I have duplicated this part using silicon and resin for modification.  I wanted to keep the original part for back up.

f:id:mata1:20160324172140j:plain

  The bow part was also replicated in plaster.

 

 I put on the resin skull on the plaster bow, and built up resin, or putty and the skull was newly sculpted.

f:id:mata1:20160324172213j:plain

 The left ons is renewed, and I made it a litler smaller than original (right hand side).

f:id:mata1:20160324172240j:plain

 the original on the bow.

f:id:mata1:20160324172244j:plain

 new one.

 I thought that one was good even if a little smaller, but I go with this.

 

Next, I will start base painting.

 Finally, it will begin a base paint.

 But before that, eliminate the seam of the hull.

f:id:mata1:20160311171245j:plain

f:id:mata1:20160311171250j:plain

 Using the Tamiya putty, remove the step of the left and right , prepare the surface with sandpaper. Panel line that disappeared in the sand paper, re-carving again.

 After  pre-treatment of parts is finished , start painting undercoat.

f:id:mata1:20160311171308j:plain

 Because I want to cut off the light of  built-in LED , I painted the color of black first. 

 By masked the window (yellow part) of the side, the hull has been painted.

 Once the paint is dry, I attached the wings. In order to both wings will be the same angle, I have to fix the wing while watching the space with the ground.

f:id:mata1:20160311171348j:plain

 

f:id:mata1:20160311171407j:plain

 When the wing is attached, it appears to have proceeded a lot.

f:id:mata1:20160311171412j:plain

 

 The next step is to fix the skull on the bow .

 The work of the Arcadia has advanced only slightly. 

 I glued the parts around the bridge.

f:id:mata1:20160223175432j:plain

 You can see optic fiber and wires from LED from the bottom.

f:id:mata1:20160223175435j:plain

 Finally it was bonded, so it is not possible to fix even if it will bebroken inside

 Also, parts of the left and right of the hull was bonded..

f:id:mata1:20160223175448j:plain

 I checked many times, if I forgeot the wiring, or connecting LED or,,,anything.

f:id:mata1:20160223175451j:plain

 Parts of the back of the hull has been bonded, too.

 Since the main part came up sets, it will proceed smoothly from now on,,,I hope...

 Hello, there.

 I have not done up date for long time,,,

 So, I think that many people forgot about the brog, or what is next.

  I finished basic work for bridge last time, and I am going to build the base parts of the bridge.

 

 I did not change the shape of the parts, but I just added some fine detail using prastic paper, junk parts and stretched runner.

f:id:mata1:20160211180748j:plain

 

 Also, I did the same to the base part of the main cannon. 

f:id:mata1:20160211180752j:plain

 I added 2 optic fiber for this part, too.

 

 At the base part of the main wing, I grind the red arrow area to make it detachable after I glue both upper and lower parts together.

f:id:mata1:20160211180758j:plain

 

 The parts attached to the hull.

f:id:mata1:20160211180806j:plain

 Finally it is getting close to the appearance of a ship, little bit,,,

 Today I will update after a long time.

 It is the assembly of the bridge, but,,,

 I forgot to take pictures of the middle of the process.

 Bridge was finished in this way.

f:id:mata1:20151204170609j:plain

f:id:mata1:20151204170646j:plain

 

Next, I must think of the idea to deliver light to the radar on the bridge.

 I bend the optical fiber, it was along under the radar as something of a pipe. Then, put the fiber in the bridge,it was delivered the LED light inside the bridge to radar.

f:id:mata1:20160109181104j:plain

 

 I have tried lighting

f:id:mata1:20151204170748j:plain

 It is a little dark, but somehow it was turned on.

 

 It is up to here today.

 Thank you for reading.

 Today's topic is about the illuminations of the bridge.

f:id:mata1:20151106172733j:plain

 Below the skull mark, it is the window of the bridge.

 I will illumination this window.

 First, I will open the windows of the slit. Method is the same as the radar.

f:id:mata1:20151106173110j:plain

 On top of the main bridge, there is another small room, it was also the opening in the same way.

f:id:mata1:20151219155047j:plain

 There are red light spot arranged in the vertical is on both sides to the radar, there is a sight chamber is also in the middle, it also be illuminated.

 

 I made hole at the vertical light and put light cure gel to make it like lens.

f:id:mata1:20151106174552j:plain

 

 Then, make 0.3mm hole from the bottom of the spot, and it was passed through an optical fiber into the hole.

f:id:mata1:20151219154529j:plain

 After that it will be painted in color of red.

 

 I made a hole from under the radar to the sighting room, then through the fiber from the top of the sighting room.

f:id:mata1:20151106174532j:plain

 

 After passing through the fiber, I glued  a window part. I made it using  a clear runner.

f:id:mata1:20151106174642j:plain

 

 It was tested using the LEd.

f:id:mata1:20151106174654j:plain

 It is looks good.

 

Next, assemble the bridge.

 Today, it is the work around the bridge.

 

 Since the antenna of the kit of parts slit is closed, I was hollowed out there.

f:id:mata1:20151024170031j:plain

 In the left is a non-working state, the right is the state of being hollowed.

 

 I opened a lot of holes in the slit using a pin vise, then I opened the slit by connecting the hole. 

 After opening the slit, I made a very small file with an aluminum plate, obtained by shaping the walls of the slit.

f:id:mata1:20151024170342j:plain

 

f:id:mata1:20151024170610j:plain

 

 The top of the antenna of the bridge was also in the same way.

f:id:mata1:20151024171113j:plain

 

 I was carefully opening the slit using the chisel.

f:id:mata1:20151024171322j:plain

 

 I hollowed out all of the slit.

f:id:mata1:20151024171607j:plain

 I spent a lot of time to doing this.

 

The following also work of the bridge part 2.
