My first ever ship diorama, it's an Hunt Destroyer recovering an Hurricane pilot.

 

The model is in 1/700 scale from the company IBG models, some photo etched were already included in the kit, this is my second ship built and the first with photo etches. Next I gotta learn rigging!

The waves are made with DAS clat, then airbrushed and covered in vallejo water effect with some cotton near the ship.

Hope you like it.

Nicely done SF. That seascape certainly has a big scary look about it.

Well done.

That’s a great diorama, and I know how difficult it is to work with PE at this scale. I’d be extremely happy if it was mine. :)

A very impressive dio mate. Well done!

 

Where did you get the 1/700 Hurricane from? Scratch built?

Great build of the Hunt Class :worthy: ... My Granduncle served on one of these. ORP Kujawiak as part of the Polish Navy in Exile. I have plans to build one someday.

Thank you mate!

It's an M6A Seiran without the floats :D, from the top the 2 planes don't look too different on this scale.

For a first ship diorama that's excellent. The sheen is spot on.  So I hope you don't mind me making a couple of suggestions for your future dioramas.  The first might be to soften the colour a little.  In 32 years in the Navy, most of it spent in the North Atlantic, I've never seen the sea that blue.  It tends to more greenish-grey tending to a darker blue the further south you go.  And the wave crests are perhaps a little too close together.  But as I said, for a first seascape that isreally good and something you can be proud of.

I am happy you liked my dio and thanks for the suggestions!

 

I live by the seaside of the Mediterrenean, I mixed blue and dark grey trying to make a cruel dark grey sea. Then I saw some photos of dios set in the Pacific Ocean and the light blue influenced me.

I also got the ships colours wrong (probably the blue it's too light).
