On this page you see several "water dioramas with German U-boote.
Especially Scale 1:144 is a great scale for these boats. The boats (mostly Revell) are well detailed and can be put easily in a diorama. Creating water is not difficult and is done, not with resin but, with yacht varnish*(terpentine based). By giving several layers of varnish (sometimes some paint is added to give it another color) I'm creating depth in the water.
*purchased at a construction market. A tin can yacht varnish of 0,25 litre (around 15 euro) can be used for several dioramas!
