Incredible! I love the figures, foliage, water...everything.

I do have one comment though; providing the the motor is still turning (I assume that it would during a hot drop-off/insertion), there should be some bubbling and frothing visible behind the stern of the boat.

Water was made from simple epoxy resin,casting in aluminium foliage form and covered with extra-gloss car varnish.
After I made hundreds of little (0.3-0.4 mm) holes and glued plants.For plants I used Inflorescences of a river cane.
In early autumn you can find such big brushes on top of canes.This branches are airbrushed with green tones,but before it you must
delete fuzz among branches.

I saw this on a Russian website,didnt need to read russian this is 1st class work, also the other dio recently posted. there was an interesting article on making that water effect with a x ray film to get the ripples heat very gently, then paint it , facinating stuff .
