Wow, just lovely James, its really come together well, I like it a lot.

The boxart seems action packed, yet that high angle of yours has got the 'cruel sea' feeling about it, really makes you feel for the lonely johnny.

Cheers
Jim

After a lot of trauma with jigsaws, wondering blades and the unique qualities of MDF I've finally got the base finished off. All ready for the show.

I don't know James. There is obviously much more white caps in the box top image then you made in your dio. It's kinda hard for me to look past such an over site. :ha: :ha: :ha: :ha: :ha: :ha: :ha:

Just kidding of course. You did an amazing job all around from the figures to the aircraft to the water. Oh and thanks for the detailed info on how to do it, I'll be saving that for future reference. 8-) 8-) 8-)

BRAVO!!!

Is that a metal, or acrylic rod?

Aluminium tube. Lot easier to cut, bend (if required) and cheaper than brass.
