Hi there

3L of Clearvu 555 clear casting resin later the aircraft is partially submerged, diorama is really getting heavy now. The resin does generate some heat so I have been pouring in layers and it does shrink by 5-10% when fully dry - so you need to keep filling the gaps between the glass and the solid resin. Note for future reference - ensure that the first coat to go on the surface contains half the recommended hardener to ensure that it flows every where and no bubbles get trapped. On the final surface layer I textured some waves and ripples, but will probably need a thin layer of water effects surface texture to make more realistic

Thanks for looking
