Looks really awesome: very nice cutting work to execute an interesting idea. Can't wait to see how the water is going to look.

Terrific. Looks like it really comes out of nowhere :)

Thanks, guys!
Lost in textures, as my wife said )

I haven"t decided yet how to do water.
Right now i have such plan - paint base in brown tones, put a few layers of clear cote and make water surface with gel denso.
Also going to add some autumn leaves.

By the way - who have an experiece with mixing gel denso with acrylic paints?

Some more progress with basement

Andrey I feel like your plan is sound.
Without the bottom half of the tank the water will have to appear muddy and the reason you can only see what is above the surface.

I bet your best bet would be to talk to a ship builder for the Denso or what ever it's called.

Andrey, just a thought: the box art depicting the KV-2 seems to have boxes or tanks on the the left fender that are level with or very slightly higher than the hull (can't quite tell...).

Should the front one of these just protrude through the water's surface?

Many regards

You are absolutely right Tony. I'm gonna try to do muddy water effect.

I understood what do you mean, Jochen.
I missed it. Will add them.
Thanks for noticing.
