    Very well done. At first - I was like, what? Where is this? And then only after reading did I read "diarama" and and I was like - ok, oh, yeah...

    Excellent - really well done. I would love to do a similar diarama with my Herpa Wings collection in my loft or something similar.

    KLM 747-400 @ St. Maarten

    Greetings all,

    I used the Airfix 1/300 747-400 (highly modified) as the subject and Flyteline Models new MyDIO kit#1 to mount it. The landscape was accomplished using styrofoam and the water using Testors Clear Cement & Windshield Maker. All the other details were scratchbuilt, so no aftermarket parts were harmed.
    For the dio scene, I crafted 21 figures out of scalpeled sheet styrene with tiny drops of the Testors Clear Cement for proportion (all fit on the face of a quarter), the fence post and umbrella poles are cut sections of Christmas Tree ornament hangers, the fence is from a fine mesh make-up bag my daughter didn't want anymore, the trash can by the umbrellas is from the guts of a watch, the umbrellas are from typing paper, the walls are sanded sprus, and the guard rail is the sanded-down upper half of the window openings on the 144 Airfix 727 cutaway. Oh, and the runway is a sheet of fine grain sandpaper.

    On the model, I scratchbuilt new engine intakes, new Flap Guides, extrended Slotted Flaps, Slats, and Landing Gear; plus lengthened the wings and built new Winglets.



    Take care,
    Frank
