Looks good alright.
Only thing I thought looked a little off was the water colour towards the rear of the LCM. My first thought was the water to the back should be a tad darker than the water lapping on the beach. Entirely up to you, that's just what I thought after thinking this looks cool.

Thanks guys :cheer:
I have been stuck on the water effect tangent for some time,all started with a float plane my dad gave me and he had this idea of the plane and sub in the sea dio,So I set about building a LCVP landing craft on a base,tried resin looked super but cracked after a couple of days,dug the boat out and then tried silicon,It worked ok,will post some photos .
Then I got this kit tried the silicon idea again but was not happy,air bubbles,dug the boat out and found a video on u tube using Mod podge, this is where I am so far,very had to judge the colours,will try and drarken the deeper water.
I will post a how to sometime soon.
Thanks for looking.

I reckon it looks great. Very realistic water and waves. I agree about darkening the deeper water a little.
And I am hanging out to see your "How To" because I have several water dios I want to do.
I'll look up that Mod Podge?

I wouldn't darken up the water, I'm sure Maarten will back me up on this but the beaches at Normandy are quite long and shallow and don't really change colour, certainly not in the length of this vehicle. In fact I think you've nailed the colours of the water/beach perfectly.

Wow nice water effect.
What G1 said, I'm no expert but I think the water colour and depth B) looks good.
