Just finished this 1/700 Skywave JMSDF Shirane:




and here are two other recent modern ships I've done - a Russian Sovremenny class destroyer:



and the Russian Slava-class missile cruiser Moskva:

That water is a blend of Testors Deep Purple and Green spray paints, then a layer of ModPodge to attach the ship, then a final coat of Future for the gloss.

It's OK, but doesn't have a lot of depth or texture. I need to learn how to make water with acrylic gel so that there's more of an impression of wind and waves.

I'm glad you like it, though!! :)

If you did that with just paint, I'm impressed.
Looks great in a photo.

Try the gel.
Its not hard and you can do it in layers.
I did a test with a old Shinano and four torpedos heading for the starboard side.
Layering the gel, I could make the bubbles from the torp. look like they started under water and rise to the surface.

Also works great on the propellor wake.
With your painting ability so far, I'm sure you could do some KILLER water.
