1/72 RAF Typhoon & Tu-95 Bear Diorama

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone and as promised here are some pics from this finished build.

I've included a link to the WIP thread if you hadn't seen it before and to recap, this all started with me asking fellow modeller and all-round good bloke Chief Wiggum if he considered building his Trumpeter TU-95 Bear as an in-flight intercept diorama. After almost 10 months and a lot of modelling heartache later (99% for Chief), here it is.

We were absolutely thrilled and stunned to win Silver in the Diorama class at the IPMS Ireland Nationals with it as well as the 'People's Choice' Award as voted for by the public at the show...

Honestly, we were deligthed! (I'm the one not smiling)

While neither of us can make Telford this year, we're hoping to get the diorama there somehow for the IPMS Ireland Club table.....gonna need a big roof box :winkgrin:

Thanks for looking and any questions, will try to answer them!

Cheers,

Dermot and Barry (aka Chief Wiggum)

I saw yesterday pics of this work on Facebook. Just great. Congratulations.

I hope someday to do something similar involving a Portuguese F-16.
