Diorama's - Water related - photo's, hints, tips and video's

Recommended Posts

Those are terrific photos.  It is funny, modeling water,  it is one of those things that when done it either comes out really really cool!  or really really bad :o .

 

Not hard in practice to do,  but very difficult to do well - a lot of attention to the little things like bubbles, shorelines, wave peaks, color.

 

 

VERY nice to see these,  always fascinated by water modelling.

It';s a pity there isnothing in the pics to give an impression of size (my Japanese (?) not being good enough to understand :) )

Kevin, That last one does look like a picture. I've done some military modeling, but those dyoramas are works of art!

Great post!!!

Kevin,

 

This is fantastic!!!!! Please post more pictures and give us links.

These modellers are true artists. It is so realistic and it is true, the first pictures with the two subs makes you sea sick....

I just looked there seems all his sea is made for his flat bottomed warships not really going to work well on say a Victory hull

 

 

But all ships and diorama's shown here are resin based, small scale, flat hulled models.

 

But I think the basics for the sea are comparable. (either stick the hull on a flat base, or make a hole in the base to accommodate for the hull.

I think your scale will be the issue. The Baumann-technique will not do for say a 1:64 model...

That is a very good point. Seas at larger scales require much more sculpting and careful observation of their movement. It's very easy to overdo the movement of water making waves look like jagged mountain ranges.!

 

I make one or two sea dioramas a year in larger scales. I just finished one that is sitting in several crates waiting to be shipped and installed. There are some examples of my seascapes on my website.   www.thehistoryman.com

 

I'd be happy to offer advice if you want to tackle a larger sea.

Have another look at Kevin's link in post #19.   Wooden ships at 1:50   He did, on MSW 1.0,  have a build log and last I heard, that diorama is for sale.

Hi, I know this is on the edge of a promotion but the best explanation concerning the sea, the ship[s in it and how to model and paint both is in Justin Camarata's book Waterline Dioramas. Justin is a well known modeler and artist whose work compares with some of the best in the world. The book can be found at www.seawatchbooks.com

 

Thanks,

Hey Dan..can you simply explain the composition of your water and its application?

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
