Well I used plxiglass for my water on my Ferreira build. I simply made sure any items above the water were cut to mimic what they would look like and any item below the water was also done in like manner. I suspect you can place the model under the plexi and only glue the items that actually stick above the water on the surface. I then laid a coat of resin on the surface and allowed it to get very stiff when it was drying and them forked the surface...this permitted the surface to slowly sag back and made the water surface ripply. I also painted the under surface to add color and depth detail. I wanted the water to look like a a backwater...murky and discolored with algae and surface yuk.The bigger trick to pull-off is the water! 1/16 of inch is 26 scale inches! Any part of the ship that is above water, I have to remove a 1/16th of the model to keep it in perspective. I don't know what else I can use, that won't sag. Any ideas out there?
Hi Shane. Would you get us to know, what is Shapeways Memorial and why would you need it for your project?Thanks Danno, I think I need to juggle projects to keep me sane. I need to get the Shapeways Memorial for this project soon and I may start a third project, so stay tuned.
