  1. My dear modeller friends, a lot of time passed before I could finish this work. But I've just finished!! It was my intention to finish the diorama for the anniversary of the Pearl Harbour attack, but personal problem took me out of my intentions. Anyway, let me present you my last work, my first 1/700 model and, last but not least, my first maritime diorama. I never tried to work on a so little model, as I was afraid for the very little pieces and difficulty on working with them, but after seeing a lot of your works, I tried. I bought the 1/700 Dragon USS Arizona winning an auction on the "bay", then during one of my trip, I found on sale the 1/700 Flyhawk USS Ward and the idea of a diorama come up. My intention was to replicate the day before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, when the battleship USS Arizona was lying down on the harbour mooring quays, and USS Ward destroyer was starting her duty on patrolling the bay. The USS Ward was the first US Navy unit to fire to a Japanese unit that was trying to enter on Pearl Harbour for a torpedo attack The 7th December 1941, during her patrolling duty she discovered a Japanese mini submarine, she attacked firing and sinking it, she also gave the alarm to the US command but her Captain's alarm was ignored. Then the disaster arrived! On reality the USS Arizona was sided with a working ship, the USS Vestal on her renoval duty, but I couldn't find any model of this scale, and so I decided to replicate a "near reality" diorama! Anyway this is my interpretation and realization....

  2. This is not my latest build. But I didn't show it here before. Hope you like it.
  3. Ready for your inspection I have Airfix's Nakajima B5N2 'kate.' The aircraft is painted in the colours of one from the Imperial Japanese Navy carrier 'Shokaku," which was involved in the attack on Pearl Harbour. I also opted for the folded wing version, partly because I wanted to experiment with cutting the plastic, and partly because I think they look rather mean with wings folded. The build went well until the painting stage, I always brush paint, and tried experimenting with thinners to enhance my painting techniques. I have since learnt that I achieve better results using distilled water to thin my paint. That said, this model making lark is a constant learning curve and I'm pleased with the final results I have achieved.
  4. For my next build I have decided to attempt the Airfix Nakajima B5N2 'kate.' As one of Airfix's new tools, the sprues are all very clean, and there is lots of detailing to the cockpit and fuselage, because of this she will be an out of the box build. I love the look of this aircraft with its wings folded in, and am toying with which paint scheme to choose. I am looking forward to using my modelling saw for the first time, and developing new techniques.
