"To recreate this piece, I started by giving the miniature a base coat of paint suitable for resin models. I considered the typical color schemes of real-life cabin cruisers to choose my palette, keeping in mind the era and common use for such a boat. I then applied multiple thin layers to build up the color depth, and I focused on details like the trim and the outboard motor, using a fine brush for accuracy. To finish, I used a wash to bring out the details and add depth, followed by a light dry brushing to highlight the edges. A matte varnish was applied to protect the paintwork and reduce shine, giving a more realistic look." - Stuart
