#55384, "Creating a realistic sea for water-line model"


          

Hello
I'm about to embark on a minicraft "deluxe" and I've already decided that I want my model displayed "sailing on the seas".
I've seen some fantastic seas modelled in photos but I haven't the first idea on how to create one or even which materials to use.
Can somebody point me in the right direction please?

Many thanks Michael.

There are many ship modeling websites out there with detailed step-by-step photos and tutorials. Have done any searching along those lines?

One web page I highly recommend for a related subject is this one. Many modelers do superb job of re-creating the ocean surface, only to have the wake patterns all wrong.

Hi Michael,

I've not personally ever done a waterline model sea, but I've always thought this method would bring some fairly decent results:

Earlier this year there was a really great article in Fine Scale Modeler about making waves and the boat wake.

I don't recall the exact month, but I'm sure if you go to their website, you should have no trouble finding something about it, it shouldn't be too hard because the article was highlighted on the front cover.

Hi Michael,

I would look into Woodland Scenics brand water effects line. It is a product for model railroaders and is easy to use. I hope this helps.

Regards,
Cord
