    The vignette depicts the last scenes of the film, when Princess Nausicca rescues a baby Ohm, a giant animal.

    The bug - Ohm - has been airbrushed. First pre-shaded and after a basic green colour, dry brushed . The paints I used are from the Vallejo range.

    The base is a cheap build of my own. A circle of insulation foam lined with grey cardoard coated iwth PVA glue and painted with a spray can.
    The ground was built with modeling clay Das Pronto and the water with still water form Woodland Scenics. nausicaa (26).JPG

    Thank you Rhaven Blaack.
    This is a very easy kit to build and very interesting to paint.

    Very interesting model, It gives me ideas for a diorama for Starship Troopers capturing the brain bug. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Zathros, I thought of your project when I was building this kit. What you showed me then looked very good.

    I have to many irons in the furnace. I have too stay focused to get one thing out. Hopefully soon, I will have something. Quite a departure from I normally work on. :)

    Your work so just so artistic. I wish I had that kind of artistic ability, what I do is much more mechanical. I can make some really exotic Bas-Reliefs out of paper though, but they are to risque to post, maybe I will send you one if you email account, and you can have a good laugh putting it together. They go together quite easily, and look good when done. :)

    How I understand you Zathros.
    I'm currently involved in an event in a group of modelers in facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/521957691148121/
    https://www.facebook.com/events/1398444853783136/?ref_dashboard_filter=past
    After an online chat I realised I had over 20 projects on standby. If this was a competition I would've won the trophee....
    This led to a joke and a cartoon. An imaginary group named Kitaholics Anonymous.
    The event consists on finishing at least 3 projects until march31st.
    We are a small bunch that really checked-in and is doing the works. It has been motivating. kitaholics.jpg

    I have made a new year's promise to attempt to stop procrastinating. The attempt is working out very well, though I have yet not made a thing. :)
