Star Trek's Ceti Eel

Recommended Posts

Based on the creature seen in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. This was a quick little model I've been tinkering with for a while now and decided to finish it up and get if off the bench and onto the shelf.

I received the kit thru Gillman Prod.. It came in 4 parts - the body, two "leg claws", and the tip of the tail. It was cast in a cream color resin, and had only 4 or 5 tiny bubbles. On an intricate surface like this, that is excellent.

After washing the parts, I primed them all in black. Then I went about assembling the kit. The legs fit fairly well, and used some Vallejo Putty to fill the voids. Turning to the tail, I drilled both parts and pinned the tail to the body. There was a bit of a gap between the two parts and this too was fixed with V's putty.

Next I painted the entire top pf the model Vallejo's Cork brown.

I then washed the segment spaces with Citadel's Nuln Oil. Once that was dry, I washed the rest of the plates with V's Agrax Earthshade. Later on I hit the highest parts of the plates with V's Sand Yellow.
Along the lines I added Citadels Sepia wash around the eye, and finally used V's Glossy Black for the eye slit.

I was waiting for it to move. Great job with a more than realistic paint job.
