Making Ocean Waves . SH-60 Jayhawk . Diorama

Hello Everyone,

My first try at making ocean waves. I use my old Hobbyboss 1/72 Sh-60 Jayhawk kit and I modify this by adding rudimentary pilots, ocean door and a winch wire.

The Rotating blades are made by using Clear Acrylic sheet which was masked and painted with RED White and Yellow Stripes. Black was Painted on the bottom in a fading stroke.

The waves are made using silicone rubber and Baking Soda. I put two layers and I think it did a good enough job.

The base is basic plywood and topped with foam and acrylic putty.

Paints used are acrylics through the build.

Hope you like it . . Do let me know for your techniques and suggestions.

Best
Adi
