Jolly Roger of Bougainville - Vought F4U Corsair (1/72 Tamiya)


Recommended Posts

Very nice setting indeed but I'm not sure about the rockets leaning up in the air waiting to be loaded. Do you have photographic evidence of that as I believe they should be flat on the ground?

They were indeed stored flat, usually on the racks but I wanted to make them more visible and to create this more disorderly look of the scene.

True, but I couldn't find the crew figures in lighter clothes that would fit the scene. They're from the Airfix set more suited for UK based bombers. But hey, beggars can’t be choosers... 😉

Ah I did wonder it that was your aim.  I am also working on an SW Pacific island diorama just somewhat larger in scope and scale (1/48).  Appropriately clothed people were equally difficult to find however I was lucky enough to find someone with 3D CAD skills to clone some scantly clad figures for me and then he doubled the numbers by printing them facing left and right 😀

The laying down coconut trees were knocked down while staging the photo 😒

Very creative photoshop work! The model and the dio make it look stunningly real.
