Apply handbrake and go straight to the Russian front. Do not pass Go....

A cracking build. I'd have sworn it was 1/35th.

Definitely an  Oh S&#T! moment. Nice dio, especially in 1/72.

I like it. But I am wondering (haven't check yet) which one was heavier - Famo or the gun?

Magic, just magic & in 1/72, that's magic with a large sprinkling of fairy dust. :)

Silly, silly, me!

I saw the post go up but the 1/72nd tag put me off having a look (I was under time pressure and so only looked at the latest 1/35th offerings!)

 

Well, no time pressure today, so I had a look, and I'm glad I did!

 

What a superb diorama! Absolutely fantastic! The 'theme' isn't particularly original - I've seen similar - but yours is by far the best 'collapsed bridge' I've ever seen, in ANY scale! The bridge appears to have collapsed correctly, or at least, in a believable way, which is good. I wouldn't worry that the Famo is the heavier of the two components... the Famo weakened the bridge and the gun was the straw that broke the camel's back.

 

BTW, that water looks lovely. What product did you use and has it dried solid and hard like glass or is it more rubbery?

 

Again, a superb diorama. I almost don't believe it's in 1/72nd!

Thanks for comments Badder I like your theory of  collapse .

The water is a clear resin ,nothing special and it dries like glass but need to add resin in two layers, add small amount of paint to first layer, when dry add clear layer and that way you get depth to water.

What brand/manufacturer/product? I have a lot of resin in my earholes, but I doubt that's the right stuff. 😁
