I love it when you light up your models!!  [biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin]

Brilliant Ken. [biggrin]

I've got a small self contained unit with red and blue flashing LED's that I've got a plan for. Easy enough to guess what that may be lol. I must follow your lead her mate. You come up with the most unique builds.

Hi all here is tonights update, I've tried to do the cannon anchors and the ammo boxes.

also tried an experiment with the vac formed sails

which looks most realistic

The one in picture left? I like the wash there but just my personal preference.

Hi all here is an update on this one. All the guns in place (still got to tie some down) all the closed gunports glued in.

 

 

 

I've discovered that the slots in the grating for the bowsprit tie downs are not there so had to make them.

This is an amazing build Ken, so much detail in this kit and you really are making a cracking job mate.

For the sails did you use tissue and PVA glue ?

The water effects are superb ! Very realistic, please cam you explain how it's done Ken ? I would really like to try this, but honestly have no clue where to begin

Fantastic work

Pete

Hi Pete, its dead easy mate.
First paint your base ( the deeper the water the darker and less other colours there would be) in this example its costal waters so not very deep ( you could add greens and browns for really shallow water showing the shallowness)
So here's your base

place ship wherever you want it (if the ship is to be removed wrap the hull in cling film to stop the sealant sticking to it.

Get some clear bathroom sealant

and apply to base

using a knife or spoon spread it roughly about

now press down with the knife or spoon and rapidly move in the direction of the wave moving upwards as you go and you will get a little peak, just like a wave, continue till you have enough, it should end up looking like this

let it go off, if you need higher waves you can add more when its gone off, as I did on the bow waves
then just highlight with white paint


you can then use cotton wool for the foam on the very tops of the waves. 
obviously you would take more care than I did on this example, but you get the idea. it really is easy I did this example in ten mins.
hope this is of use.

Thanks for going to the time and effort to show me how you did it Ken.

That's a really clever way to create a seascape, I would never in a million years have thought of using silicone ! I really do like the look that it gives and so much cheaper than buying a water effect product from the hobby shop.
Even the quick demonstration piece you have done looks fantasic, I'm definitely going to give it a try.
I have a 1/32 Revell Sea Lynx helicopter and seeing how you have done this is making me think I could make a base showing the helicopter Hovering over the waves (I wonder if I could make the silicone look like rotor wash on the surface ?)

This has really given me some inspiration to try something new

Cheers mate

Pete

My advice there would be get a round lid about the size of the rotor spread the silicon press the lid in and as you lift in the driection of the rotors it should give you waves going out in concentric circles.
