This was a new experience trying out both weathering and removing seams for the first time overall it turned out good.
I went aggressive on the weathering because I wanted to learn how far I can take it so in the future I know when to dial it back when need be. I went with just a basic black and gray dry brush and real touch gundam markers. Could have used a hint of aluminum but hey I’m way to cheap and lazy to buy proper stuff all the time.
Using cement on a model wasn’t new to me but using it to remove seams was. Overall it’s was kinda a pain to use probably because of the brush attached to the cement cap was thick got all over the piece. Since some if the pieces were thin they broke off but was easy to but on and weather on top.
In the end im glad I tried something new and different from what I normally do.
Hubble gazes into a black hole of puzzling lightness
The beautiful spiral galaxy visible in the center of the image is known as RX J1140.1+0307, a galaxy in the Virgo constellation imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, and it presents an interesting puzzle.
At first glance, this galaxy appears to be a normal spiral galaxy, much like the Milky Way, but first appearances can be deceptive!
The Milky Way galaxy, like most large galaxies, has a supermassive black hole at its center, but some galaxies are centered on lighter, intermediate-mass black holes.
RX J1140.1+0307 is such a galaxy – in fact, it is centered on one of the lowest black hole masses known in any luminous galactic core. What puzzles scientists about this particular galaxy is that the calculations don’t add up. With such a relatively low mass for the central black hole, models for the emission from the object cannot explain the observed spectrum.
There must be other mechanisms at play in the interactions between the inner and outer parts of the accretion disk surrounding the black hole.
