Quick - somebody start a new thread on whether it should be gloss or flat.

Think about it!
This is a 39 inch version of a 17'3" shooting miniature! I'd guess that would really make the kit about 1/5th scale!
This is a model of a vessel that only exists in an old TV series.
This is a model of a vessel, about which even the "experts" disagree as to the size of the fictional "real Seaview"
I happen to be an aircraft modeler and I fully understand the concepts of consistent scale as applied to REAL airplanes or REAL cars or REAL ships! Seaview never was a real practical operating submarine at a 1 to1 scale!
Sorry to dwell on this, as it is becoming an increasingly wasteful distraction.

I hope that everybody who buys a Seaview kit enjoys building and painting it to whatever standard makes them happy!

I guess its ok to obsessed about the color of the Seaview, but not the scale.

Obviously the Seaview is a fictional sub and there is tremendous debate about the actual size of the sub.

But in the research and planing of this kit, there must have been attempts at justifying the interior sets to the exterior dimensions.
Thus, including an interior of the kit with people, ties it to a real world scale.

Regardless of whos length is 'correct', the interior of the kit is scaled to 1/128 which also affects the diving bell, flying sub etc.

Its easy to paint the kit any color one wants, its harder to rebuild the interior.

For the sake of the color obsession discussion I'll try to get over the scale thing.

^Well, ya can paint the sub any color you want, but there's nothing you can DO about the size of the kit. Unless you're trying to talk Moebius into scrapping everything they've done up to this point, eating the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent, and starting over.

And your point?


I'm just thankful it's coming out, even if I have to add on to the house to accomodate it!!

Here you go the build up of the first test shot......not award winning photography, but you can get an idea of how the finished model will look.

Happy New Year

Dave

I watched a couple of episodes of my Voyage season 2 DVD last night. Sure, the surface shot shows a clearly grayish brown Seaview (being wet darkens the color) but when it's submerged, you know, the stock footage, 3/4 beauty shot just off of the ocean floor? THAT's what I will be aiming for. That's what I fell in love with as a kid and that's why I'm gonna paint it blue. It's just a beautiful sub and I'm happy to have the chance to do it.
