What's available to represent TWO aircraft in flight?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm not used to dioramas, nor displaying our kits in flight, but I've some sort of project related to this, so I was wondering:

 

- What's available on the market to represent not one but TWO aircraft in flight, close together. 

I mean, not only the stands by themselves, but also the scene (Terrain or sea), blurred prop (does it only exist?), etc... 

Any idea is welcome.

 

-If it happen there's nothing that suits me, what would be your prefered material for a stand (to support a medium sized WW2 fighter))?

 

Thanks in advance for any input.

Check out Coastal kits products, they come in various scales and styles. Heres an example of one of the ground blur options. hFWnBd8.jpg

For the stand I would use a wooden block. With two kits you'll need weight for stability.

To suspend the kits, perspex rod should do the trick. You'll still see it, but it's less obvious than brass rod.

You can use music string to suspend the model in the air. If you polish it up it wouldn't really catch an eye that much. If you are going to go that route I would recommend to attach the model during assembly stage to a much longer string that you think you would need, finish the model, make adjustments to the position and cut to the final length right before placing to the base.

There are various options for the blurred prop:

  • Electric motor, but needs wires running to it and a power supply
  • PE aftermarket sets such as PropBlur and Alliance Modelworks
  • Acrylic disc, can be bought or made, plenty of Youtube tutorials online

Cheers,
