So, I've finished my Portal gun, and I want to try something else. I'd like to make a large scale model as I want to try some miniature model for film. The easiest thing to do/film would be a plane or a submarine, so I'm going with a sub.
It needs to be large so that I can include more details for filming, thus the 1/72 scale.
Now, I've never done a model kit build before, but I never had made a prop when I started out on my Portal gun, so I'm confident that I can do this. I am wondering what I should read up on for tips on building something like this, along with what I should use to paint and detail the sub.
This is the model I'm considering. Amazon.com: Revell 1:72 Us Gato Class Submarine: Toys & Games
EDIT: I'd probably also be adding lighting and possibly even attempt to get the propeller to rotate slowly for the filming part.
