  1. I was looking for the model pictures! Surely thats real??? Incredible. Well done.
  2. WOW! That is excellent. Love the detail. Great work. Have you considered a roof or partial roof like mine? HURR-1 Any close-ups of the posters scattered around the work shop? They look very interesting! LOL
  3. Yes mate. Sorry, forgot to say,.. you need to use water. I really water it down and use a broad brush. Best of luck and look forward to seeing you results. Good luck
  4. Hello Carlosee. It could work..., but if I was you, I would experiment with fine sand with a few different grades of grit mixed with Polyfilla. Thats how I did this one. KITT-1 Also, you might try replicating Marston Mat as that was commonly used. Lots of scale options replicate this but I haven't tried any yet. Good luck. Google image search 'Marston Mat' for some nice pictures
  5. Love this diorama. So much going on and so many details. Really nicely done. On a side note,.. I really hope a train doesn't come through anytime soon. Good luck clearing that little lot away in 5 minutes,.. heh heh.
  6. ....this is one of those situations where I feel woefully inadequate at modelling looking at the level in this diorama. Its quite amazing the detail and skill thats gone into creating this. The roof space and interior just blows my mind. Well done. Completely amazed!
  7. Love the look of those Fiat G.91's. So many interesting colour schemes to choose from,.. not to mention the Tiger Meet Fiat's. That nose really suits Tiger/Shark teeth. Look forward to seeing more.
  8. Thanks Riley. Much appreciated mate. The concrete is roofing felt. Glued it down to some plastic 5mm foamxboard and stacked some bricks on it for about 2 weeks (did a whole bunch of them at the same time). Cut the panels line with a craft knife and preshaded, weathered etc. Watch out for the black tar. It gets everywhere. Same technique used on some of those pictured below.

  9. Thanks mate. Most people like the Mosquito one the best. Much appreciated
  10. Thanks Homer Much appreciated Vinnie, Very kind sir.
  11. Thank you mate. Same here, aircraft particularly with wheels down seem to want for a little scene to set them off. Even just a tuffed of grass paints a bigger picture.
  12. Cheers Francis. Glad you like. Thank you Pete. Much appreciated.
  13. Been following this for a long time and loving the diversity and scope of this build. And here's me thinking not much aircraft support vehicles and equipment is available for 1/48. LOL Excellent work mate. Those F16 are cracking!
  14. Just finished another airfield 1:48 diorama. Pictures added to the beginning of this thread and the compete sets can be found below. How to deal with a doodlebug. see below,...
  15. Finished. HANG-1 HANG-4 Thanks for looking. Completed diorama can be found here:
  16. Hello modellers. How to deal with a doodlebug! Took a little while, but finished another Airfield diorama in 1/48. This time its April 1945 and with the war in Europe drawing to an end. Spitfire Mk.IXe 'Joan Too' sits outside her Hangar at RAF Twente. The Luftwaffe has all but been defeated in the sky and a captured V1 flying bomb (also know as the doodlebug) is shown to some new curious Dutch young pilots as their senior pilot Wing Group Capt. C.F Bradley demonstrates how RAF pilots would 'wing tip' these new terrifying weapons, hopefully causing them to crash int
  17. Cheers mate. Printed to size would be ideal, I just dont have assess to a desktop printer at home during lock-down. LOL That sign I made was originally intended for a different diorama. The historians will rightly say 19 Squadron didnt use Hurricanes, but the late war P51 scene I made didn't exactly go to plan. I was darned if I was going to throw away that sign after painting those letters,.. so its now a permanent resident in that time traveling workshop.
  18. I genuinely thought that was a picture of a real factory at first. Fantastic model. This is a workshop diorama I made last year. Really enjoy adding the details. That "PeterHead" sign was hand made with masked off lettering and airbrushing. Took me longer to make than the entire workshop LOL.
  19. Cheers mate. The guttering is a drinking straw cut down the length and i found the light in a box of plastic bits. I have a friend who was a mod on the airfield research group that kindly sent me some cracking pictures. The Belfast truss hanger at Ratcliffe was great looking (its been repainted now) and I based those doors on its design. Also have some great pictures of the original 'no smoking' sign that is still there. I will incorporate that somehow.
  20. Had to use a transparent acrylic rod to strengthen up the right hand side. Still some work to be done, but the building is almost complete. Just need to dress the scene and add the figures. HangerA HangerB HangerC
