I have the pleasure of doing a build-up for a client of the new Moebius Eight Window Seaview.

This is a static build,per the client witha medium Gray for the upper hull and White for the lower hull, keel, etc..It's what the client wants.

As I take great pride in all my work, I am building this(as alll my work), as if it were for me.

Ok, The client requested the Limber holes be opened up..Which I have done, then I attached the bow to the stern.

Currently I am removing all seam lines from the hull and will post more Pix when I have something of interest to show.

:wave: "Returned favor" time: I found Tamiya's rattlecan "USAF Neutral Grey" to be an excellent shade for the upper hull.
Many thanks again for tipping me off to Tamiya "Mica Silver" for the Moebius Jupiter II! :thumbsup:

Off to a good start, I'm sure it will be a beauty when your done Mark. You've got the knack for building many great things.

I did a similar paint job on my 4-window, using Tamiya paints. (It was he first rattle-can paint job I had done in almost 20 years!) I used a Darker grey on the top, and a light grey on the bottom, and kind of "faded" them together to give a "shark" look to the build. I was pleased, although that's another one of those "shake up the traditionalists" things!! LOL.

UPDATE!

The final medium Grey has been mixed and airbrushed to the upper hull.
I have eliminated all the seam lines on the upper and lower hull, and have installed the completed Observation Nose.

I have also filled in the holes for the kit supplied stand(per the client).

So far, so beautiful! While the sub fairly begs for lighting, your client will really love this display model even without it! :thumbsup:

Looking really good, I can never get tired of that 8-window proportion and symmetry. Its like 'Mondrian' geometry - its so beautifully perfected... Fox
