In the spirit of the Father Ted "small, far away" joke I have long thought about a diorama featuring 3 aircraft in a classic Cold War North Sea QRA Intercept pose. I like the idea of Black Mike, Phantom XV582 of 111 squadron in use as a QRA aircraft but she wasn't ever used for this. Plan is to have a 1:48 Phantom FG.1 in the foreground, normal low-viz grey scheme 111 squadron colours. Then a 1:72 scale Phantom FG.1 in the Black Mike scheme. Then rear most a 1:200 scale Tupolev Bear being shadowed. I found a good formula here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_perspective and using the Tan theta formula think I may be able to start the rough work on this. Any advice regarding light and back ground greatly appreciated. I plan to build in a box to force the viewer to look 'down field'. Cheers.
