Here's the finished "Ahab". All painted with acrylics. I added a scar to his head, per Gregory Peck's character in the 1950's movie "Moby Dick". Which, by the way, I watched a dozen time while working on this model!
I labeled the cask "SAIL MAKER", again, picked up from the movie. Just what that means, I have no idea.
I gave the hatch a chipped paint look. I think it helps make the whale design hinge pop.
I have one more item to add as soon as I figure out how to build it. Right now, I'm going to take a break and start on a project, which will no doubt take all summer to complete.
Thanks for following.
