1/72 Flying Banana Refuelling Diorama


Recommended Posts

Was it that pesky Tank Builder Gordon from Peterhead?

No it was another pesky tank builder by the name of Robin Sim.

He deservedly won by a very comfortable margin, here is his excellent model:

Would you believe he cast and coloured all those cobble stones individually out of resin?

Gordon told me he has lost his modelling mojo recently - a sad state of affairs.

Nigel, I must have missed this the first time around.

What a stunning looking diorama.

Loving the fuel truck and compressor.

I saved some of these pictures on my HD. This is one of the nicest dioramas I've seen in a long time. Great use of colour, and nicely balanced!

And it looks even better in 'real life' too - great to see it on the weekend Nigel, lovely work all round (& if they didn't actually paint the tankers/pumps in those colours, they should have, looked just right!)

Was great to see this in the "flesh" at SMW last weekend, pity they wouldn't turn the lights off in the hall to allow us to see it illuminated :)

I forgot the Sunday BM meetup completely!

You forgot

I didnt know :(

but I should have remembered there was one last year too

maybe I will remember next year

Nigel, I think I mentioned it 'in person' but as a reminder, all your displayed models were 'something else'

Brilliant all of them
