    Hi all decided to guild this model as the La Reale looks pretty good I've also opened the gun ports on one side to try and make it a bit better than the blanked off gun ports and a stub as a cannon, decided to guild this bit before sticking the cannons in as the guilding would have been more difficult with them sticking out.

    Hi all I've decided to do something different with this and it involves this
    Airfix 1/144 Royal Sovreign ODULjiq
    It flickers just like a real candle and the other one is kaput so I developed a cunning plan so, off with the transom
    Airfix 1/144 Royal Sovreign BYLcvyr
    can you guess where this is going
    drilled out the windows
    Airfix 1/144 Royal Sovreign EvG4esR
    then removed the rest of the window
    yes thats right I'm going to RC it, only joking, lighting up the state cabins.

    Thanks bcauchi a small update on this, The transom sticks out past the gallaries on the sides and I didnt like the way Airfix just moulded them flat so I've rounded the edges and reguilded them

    also the grills on the prow are not moulded all the way through so I drilled all the holes out.

    Lovely effect well done. Are you going to put in some material sheeting to look like the glass in the openings for the windows?

    It's dead easy mate, paint your base colour first(imagine how deep the water is, the deeper the darker the water will apear) ( mine is on a coastal waters so not particularly deep)if you need to remove the ship as with this(to change the batteries, or with my Warspite dio, to make it easier to transport)wrap the hull in cling film, so the sealant dosn't stick to it, if the ship is not to be removed don't worry about the cling film. Get some clear bathroom sealant and spread it over your PREVIOUSLY PAINTED base it needs to be deeper where the bow and port and starboard sides then with a spoon push into the sealant and drag in the direction of the wave with a rapid upwards movement and you will get a peak with a bendy over bit like the tip of a wave as you get farther away from the ship the waves should get less rough, after you have it roughly how you want it use different tools to get finer waves also you can let it go off then add more hight to bow waves as needed. Hope you understand what I've said, I could do a pictorial guide of how I do it if not. I am sure others on here could teach you more realistic effects.ps sorry forgot to add paint the tips of the waves with white paint.

    Great! I thought that you used silicone sealer but was not 100% sure because you really managed to make it stand like a wave. It normally swoons down to a blob if you try to prep it up. That is a really great idea. Lovely work.
