Masterpiece Model’s 31 Inch Nautilus by Jerry Testa

This is the 31” version of Disney’s Nautilus produced by Masterpiece Models. It was a well thought out kit that was a pleasure to assemble. There where just a few parts that I replaced like the main salon bubble window frames and the cover of the skiff, which I think I misplaced so had to make it from scratch. The finish is spayed on “Antique Copper” and then burnished with a black wash and pastels to give it a patina appearance. I didn’t want it to look like an old rust bucket but rather a real world weathered vessel and maintain the illusion it was made of copper.
Hope you like it.

Very Sincerely,
Jerry Testa
