What materials for seascapes?

Recommended Posts

After laying my hands on a 1/350 water line model I started wondering what products there could be for seascape modelling? A short google and youtube search brought up MIG, AK and Vallejo products but barely any comparison. Other than the price, is any of these better/worse than the others?


Also, if you might care to share your approach to modelling waves and water that would be very useful to a beginner like me, for sure.


Many thanks!

In my Work in Progress for my models of HMS Somerset and the Revel Type143 Fast Attack Craft I show my technique for modelling the ship underway at sea, one with a waterline hull and one with a full hull:






I use textured paper as a base and then texture paste to form the wake pattern.


There are other methods which you will find on the hints and tips part of the forum.


I hope this helps.
