Here is another shelf queen that needs to be dethroned. This languished in its box 3/4 done for too long.

Here it is as I found it: This is mostly OOTB, with some missing rivets and other small details added:



Primed and preshaded:


Base color - Tamiya IJN Grey:


I wanted to do something a bit different for camo compared to all the others I have seen on the web, then I stumbled upon this photo thanks to Saul.


Which resulted in this:




Of course no respectful Tiger Shark is mouth less - so...


Some hairspray:


Decals:


Pinwashes and streaking:





Now onto the fish!


That's it so far. I am bouncing back and forth between 3 projects - all Queens trying to get them done before I start anything new!

Okay moving in on finishing this. I have completed and loaded the fish, added salt streaks, more rust streaks, and polished the heck outta the dome.
