I started this project last year, took a break during the summer and picked it back up after Christmas
This was my first attempt at making a sea base with the cotton ball technique. It was surprisingly forgiving in that as long as it's there it'll look good.

Full album for each ship below since the images I took were too big to upload here and I don't want to resize everything
