Full hulled models or livelier seascapes need bases with more substance. I use ordinary styrofoam insulation boards from the hardware supermarket. This is what I do:

Auf solch ein Tutoriale habe ich doch schon lange gewartet!

What a great tutorial, many thanks for sharing the knowledge

Danke Frank! Immer gut zu wissen! Kommt auch noch ein Wassergestaltung-Tutorial in 1:72?
22. January, 14:18
Sorry, Harry - nicht mein Maßstab für Wassergestaltung - dazu kann ich leider nichts beitragen...

Habe mich an Wassergestaltung nie rangetraut. Da ich jetzt aber vermehrt U-Boote baue, kann ich mich mit Hilfe deines tutorials daran mal versuchen. Danke

Schwierig wird´s, wenn das Wasser durchsichtig ist. Dann kommst Du mit diesen Techniken nicht weiter. Wenn es nicht durchsichtig ist - dann schon

Wow, what a great tutorial. Thank you, water wiz!

Great tutorial many thanks. But again how did you create the turbulented water direct at the hull. The the polygonal shape is very interesting.
25. January, 08:00
The water looks awesome, but typically I see these water builds without "wet" areas on the hull which detracts from the illusion because a real boat (or anything else in the water) would not be completely dry everywhere above the water. To go along with the turbulent waves maybe some gel on the hull itself so it looks wet from moving up and down in the water? Again, love the look of well-done water bases like this!

You´re right, Mike, I just might add some wetness to the hull yet - which it would show in reality. The problem is arriving at the right amount of gloss to make it look convincing. Norbert, I answered your query in the MCMV post.

Excellent, love it. Going to try it myself. Thank you very much.

I used the same technique for my Loire C130 project and was really happy how good it works, even in 1/72
. The only difference is that I used Styrodur insulation foam, which is very dense (dt.: Styrodur ist sehr dicht und hat sehr kleine Partikel, tolles Zeug) . That means that you can even sand it if necessary and cut it quite easily. But if you use Styrodur dont apply too much heat on one spot over long time, because this will cause the foam to create a solid top layer which is almost strong as plastic and can hardly be corrected. Always keep the flamer in motion, like an airbrush

Thanks, Stephan! I also use Styrodur, insulation board from the hardware supermarket. I also second your recommendations on flame use!
