NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT!!

Brilliant work Tom - totally captures the box art, the motion, the excitement, The Vibe...

I reckon you may even get away with just gluing the falling bomb onto the front of the stand as well?!

Cracking!

Cheers
Al.

You'll find that you can be quite heavy handed dry brushing white on the waves, it never is as much as you think it is while doing it.

Cheers guys :grin: had another session on the diorama this morning.


Smoke on:


Image



And some beginnings of bomb bursts, I've had another drybrush over the ships wake as well, maybe one more coat to go:


Image




I have a nice set of prop blurs courtesy of Mr Perrin so I'll be getting them attached this afternoon and then go about rigging up a falling bomb, two options here; either attach to the stand with thin wire or hang from the aircraft with ez-line...choices choices :lol:

Regards

Tom

From experience it will be easier to get the bomb to hang at the right angle and direction using two threads.

Following James sage advice I can now present you guys with...duh,duh, DUH...a hanging bomb :ha: :


Image



I've also painted the area around the stand as you guys can see and got on with attaching some prop-blurs:


Image



I also tried to blend the cotton wool splashes into the base by flecking with the basecoat blue:


Image




Just a host of little details to go now but I'm happy that this will be finished in time :grin:

Regards

Tom

:wanw Oh my god, I didn't think it could get much better...

...the explosion is brilliant, the blue flecking a stroke of genius. The hanging bomb - now I know what to do with the same on my diving Stuka.

Genuinely Tom, words fail me mate :shock:

Cheers
Al.

James, I have a copy of the boxart for this that I'll bring on the Friday, what time will you guys be at the International Centre? I'm aiming to arrive at 3.

Regards

Tom
