Ahab

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.

Jason, Great job on the figure. I'm sure the barrel was just full of supplies for the ship's sailmaker. Can't wait to see the next project. ~Gary

Thanks Gary and Joe!

Joe, I didn't know you were blogging too. Thanks for visiting!

Gary, thanks. You'll like the next project. It's a Rev War vignette with some big names in it.

Hi Jason
Cool idea with the figure and a neat finish too.
Johnny Quest's tune reminds me of my school days when I used to watch it a dozen times...:)
