Outstanding piece!

My wife thinks I procrastinate. I just put things off till she forgets.

Thank you for posting this build, so impressive! I have enjoyed your modeling skills and have really appreciated you showing what can be done with current 3D printers. You have a real eye for what looks interesting in a scene and every time I come back and look at these pictures I notice a new detail. Again thanks for sharing and well done!

I'm simply stunned! Amazing work, awsome diorama and models.

Thank you all for the compliments Embarrassed Big Smile

@JoeSMG. 

Yeah it is a tad frustrating. Just when you think you are nearly done. Ah well, makes you grow I suppose. 

 

I've bought some new acrylic cut to exact size for a good price. But because I'm quite busy lately with other stuff I did not have time to work on it. But I will document the results. (I've tested on test pieces a surprising familiar glue. (At least familiar to modellers.)

@CapnMac82

That's a good idea! I Actually searched for it but I thought it was quite expensive (Here in Holland.) . And making myself would be cheaper. In hindsight I spend probably now more money because of all the failures. Let's just say I've paid for the experience.

Hiding the joints is also a good idea I keep open. If it is necessary it will probably be brass. I's what I've got. Stores are still semi closed due to covid.

Beautiful attention to detail. Love every bit of it. Wake on the small craft is so realistic.

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

That was amazing. The attention to detail was fantastic to say the least. You are a skilled and vary talented modeler. I am looking foreard to more of your works of art.
