  1. Hi all; Thought I would share this film with you all, there are some great references, especially of Lancasters on the ground being prepared for a mission. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujLVIlESNGE#t=40 Happy New Year!

    They are very good! Your level of realism for 1/72 is excellent and the photo work is really well done. Would you like to tell us more about your photo and lighting techniques, and the construction of the backgrounds and bases? I used to live in Asia in the late 1960's so this is a subject that interests me greatly.
  3. Hi all; Just been browsing WIX, and a great set of photos has been posted of Spitfires in the field. Some of them are crying out to be done as dioramas, what with the ground crews, vehicles and landscapes. Anyway, enjoy; I certainly did! http://warbirdinformationexchange.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=47634&p=477609#p477609
  4. Hi Manny; One thing that I have seen which is quite effective is to pose the model by a hangar door. You don't need to make the entire hangar, just the end. Another thing to try would be maybe a scene out on the airfield, with a little tarmac, the edge in grass and a couple of vehicles, like you say. You can throw in a low brick building in the background for a bit of depth and interest. Airfields often have these right by the ramp. BW Models do a good range of white metal kits in 1/72 of RAF vehicles and ground equipment, you could also use the JB Models (now marketed by Airfix) 1/76 Land R

  6. Nice work guys...good to see a realistic looking crash scene, in real life the aircraft usually plough up the ground as you have shown in yours. I would only add one thing, normally if a Spitfire crash lands the prop blades break off as they are wooden, they don't bend back. It was a useful feature of the Spitfire meaning that a prop strike was less damaging to the engine. Here's a typical scene; http://ianwallacedreams.com/files/2010/01/...ash-landing.jpg
