1/144 US Navy RHIB Diorama

Found this on YouTube. The two RHIB models are impressive as is the build itself.

I would probably have tried using a tinted resin for the water rather than painted clay but his water effects are really good especially the finishing details of the foam. Must have taken ages.

I couldn't make out the details of the manufacturer (obviously a 3D print) and the builder provides no build notes or other details for the video which is a shame.

Boats and dio are most impressive indeed!
I think it's the HS models kit:

beautiful kit, but not really cheap for 48$ one piece . . .

Yep that's the one - and he used two!!

I have found a smaller, 7m version as well but still over $30.00.

Have to admit I am tempted

Stunning, indeed. :mrgreen:

As I watch that vid and see the modeller painting details on, say, the numerous figures, I realise that my manual dexterity is way past it (I'd keep missing their faces altogether and paint their helmets flesh colour!) and my reliance upon the magnifying lamp is the only way I'm still modelling to a half-decent standard. :oops:
OTB ...
GB20 - Lavochkin La-7 (Mark I)
GB25 - Vickers Windsor (Anigrand), Curtiss P-40M Kittyhawk III (AFV Club)
SoS - Douglas C-47B Dakota (Minicraft) and several others :-(

they aren't 1/144 but... have you watched the other Studio Blue Ocean clips? Japanese Surrender on USS Missouri, USS Yorktown at Midway, HMS Illustrious ready to launch and many other stunning masterpieces?
This guy does wonders (he must have mortgaged his house to buy all those Photo-Etched stuff, though)
