    Amazing! Finally some life-like water. The best I've seen (although I haven't been looking as hard as some of you guys).

    Makes even me want to alight on the waves for a spell - I'm thinking a Cub on floats, an Aeronca on floats, and even a Sunderland - if I could find on of the old 1/33 kits (Fly model, was it?) - Leif

    I read an article in one of the model railroad magazines in which the author was using clear silicone to create the water effect on top of interior blue acrylic house paint. One problem with such believable water is that the suspension of disbelief created must also be equaled in the craftsmanship of the model.

    Seascapes: Perhaps a Translation?

    Hi Group!
    This water surface does, indeed, look good!

    The instructions? (Hint, hint, nudge,nudge etc)

    Russian is one of the few languages that auto translates well I used Google toolbar to read it.
