Athanasios you created a wonderful little scene; I admire your skills and would would like to read a few words of you how you did everything. Especially the seawater looks terrific!

Thank you for your good words!
The sea effect is made of clay,colourd in several tones of
mixed blue and green, and coated with a clear
acrylic gel, layer. The surfs on the other hand are
little cotton tufts, glued on the surface.

What a wonderful diorama! The layout, details, action, and weathering are all first class, and all in 1/700 scale! This one's a gem.
