Hi all here's one I've been on a while it's going to be on a dio rescuing a pilot from a ww2 air show who's plane either had engine trouble or a mid air collision the pilot couldn't open the canopy so ditched it in the sea.
I have finished the main ship




I've started on the small boat as well

Nice clean build. That looks to be a large kit. How big do you plan the dio to be? Will it include a plane in the water or just the pilot? Based on what I can see of the tall ship in the background it looks like you've mastered water effects. Will be following with interest.

Hi Ken,

This looks to be a cool diorama! The rescue vessel is cleanly built, and as John said, your sea effects look right too. One challenge will be to make the ditched aircraft look like a preserved World War Two vintage warbird rather than some sort of time-warp scene with a WWII plane and a modern ship!
