What a great little diorama, an inspiration to copy at some point :)

Thank you Woody and I look forward to your version - perhaps with four props working? ;)

Kind regards,

Stix

Hello stix,

Very fine job and nice painting too, at first I wondered "Why did he put only one bomb ??"

Then I saw !!:yikes: 

The 2 poor little fellas will be transformed in heat, light and noise in a few seconds

Good idea, nice diorama, so Congratulations ! :worthy:

Sincerely.

Corsaircorp

That is lovely Stix. Those gunners are about to have a very bad day.

Hi Stosh and thank you too. As I said above.......it might not go off.......

 

I have got some of the photos from the first post Photoshopped so when I get chance I will post them here.

 

Kind regards,

I can hear the Rolls Royce humming and the Nazi wailing.

An extremely well done combo. Congrats Stix.

Good job it wasn't 'North Amercian Dry Mud' or 'Malaysian Dry Mud' or it would have looked well incongruous! :winkgrin:

Rearguards,

Badder

You are certainly not wrong!

Thank you very much PattheCat- you are most kind.

 

I haven't had the time today to post the Photoshopped photos - too much house stuff - I will try and get them on tomorrow.

As mentioned before - I now have some Photoshopped versions of some of the original photos. In all cases the support rod has been removed, in some cases the aircraft was photographed against the white background so it's been superimposed on a sky background and some have been aged or blurred.

Fantastic photos Styx, especially the black and white. I can just imagine the photographer falling over backwards after some of the head on shots.

What's next?

Still in awe looking at your brush painting and photo edition skills.

Keep on delighting me, please.

Hi John and thank you very much. Yes I would have to agree that the photographer was putting himself in harms way for some of those images! -  It is quite a dangerous place in our backroom sometimes! ;)

The next project is currently underway in the 'From Russia with love' GB - I'm making three 1/48 Russian AFVs and hope to build a Zvezda Yak3 as well.

Kind regards,

Stix

Those "free flight" shots are great Stix, just needs a bomb about to impact on the anti tank gun for completeness. :)

😉👍 All the very best,Paul.

Hi mate. I have also think that mosquito is really photogenic aircraft and in my opinion it is most beautiful 2 engine aircraft of 2ww. 

You did great job with aircraft and diorama. I really admire your creativity.

Well done :)

Hi Steve and thank you very much for your kind comments. With regards the bomb - if you look carefully in the photos in the first posts of this thread you may spot there is actually a bomb falling behind the trees:

Sorry Stix, missed that, the perils of browsing the site on a phone. :( Looks like you're bang on target too, it should come as a nasty surprise. :)
