This is a small boat made for RPG pen and paper games that have figures that are 1 inch by 1 inch. I painted an example of what it can look like, but what you are buying is a version that is primed black and ready to paint. My suggestion is to paint it with Acrylic paints how you want it to look and then put a finish clear coat on it. It is made of a very thick, heavy, almost indestructible hard plastic. It is very, very durable.
