Pete,
You really do have the knack of making these builds look special.

Hi John, no apologies needed there are so many builds to keep up with, if anything I owe you an apology for not leaving a comment or two on your great build I do keep up with yours and everyone else's builds, so many good ones around now, but everyone beat me to the good comments.
Thank you for dropping in and leaving a nice comment. Back to the other two ships.
Pete.

Pete,
Just joined in on this build and not a minute too soon. Excellent, and a complete change from 'normal' items. How did you do the water, and does it come in different shades/colours.

Hi very small update.

This is the 2nd layer of gel it's about 5mm deep and still has 12h to go before the next layer of clear gel then foam.


The light blue is where it's still drying out.


Thank you.
Pete. :sleeping::sleeping::sleeping::sleeping::sleeping:

This tiny battlecruiser is looking very good mate. And I like the water so far as well. Looking forward to see the foam ^^

Cheers

Hi a bit of disastrous update.

All went wrong when I added the sea foam around the hull as you can see it's :poop:




So cut out all the gel.


Looks like a beached whale.


I try again :sad-face: .


Thank you for looking.
Pete.

Hi Pete
Great looking build. Shame about the white water. I'm sure it will be sorted.

Hi Pete sorry to be a downer but well I thought it looked great with the white water a round the hull line as real warship do have this white water due to the hull speed of about 33 nkt's cutting through the sea but just my thoughts
