    totally amazing Lou, what sticks out the most is the water effect you managed to create for the hovercraft, awesome and so realistic, it made such a difference. You are the BEST!! Tikber u ssir ahjar.

    Thanks guys for your kind comments....I really enjoyed the build...it took quite a while...a year to be exact...366 days...but the end result was very rewarding....

    What a beautiful job on the ship, I have spent a lot of time on this thread studying the photos.

    I love how your water turned out. How did you do the nice shallow waves and also how did you do the spray alongside the hovercraft?

    I sculpt the water using common kitchen paper towels soaked in a diluted mixture of PVA glue....lay it on and sculpt it with different chisel brushes....a fine coating of a creamy mixture of household plaster is then applied...it's then painted with common house hold paint...namely blue, green and black using a wet on wet application.....The spray surrounding the LCAC's was fashioned out from special cotton wool for aquarium filters....glad u like it...best regards....next projext HMS Warspite entering Malta's grand harbour in 1942...

    That's a really cool way of doing the water, thanks much for the information! That's a lot like the way guys will lay the groundwork for the model railroad stuff, never thought of using it for water.
