Hi there,

here is one of my latest creations. I really like to build dioramas, I mean I love them and whenever I build one, I prefer to do something unusual. We all know those typical aircraft dioramas and just to make sure I have build several of them myself, like aircraft maintenance or a crash landed aircraft. Everyone of us knows them and if build with the right eye for details they can look awesome even breathtakingly good. But I do not like them anymore, simply because aft6er having seen virtually a gazillion of them I wanted to create something different and that became for me the biggest fun and challenge in creating some different dioramas, whichh involve aircraft and or ships.

So here is a dio which was build by me, because I wnated to see if I can create something very dynamic like an explosion, take a look for yourself and let me know what you think, does it look realistic or not?

The scale is as ususal for me 1:72, everything is scratch build with the exception of the aircraft which is the Airfix Skyhawk. All photos were taken by a good friend of mine, Albert Moser.

Have fun!











Cheers René

Absolutely amazing. Me and my better half are still wondering how you pulled this one off. It looks so real I cant stop but to think this is a model. Please let us inquiring minds know how you did the fireballs. I know there are lights in there somewhere but the rest is what is blowing me away. That is what makes it look so real. The blackened parts of what I am assuming is cotton shaped into a fireball look fantastic. This is a show stopper for sure.

I saw it in the flesh at the Ried im Innkreis show a couple of months ago, quite impressive indeed. I particularly like the small white secondary explosions and the use of light within the main explosions to give it a good glow.

I also had the chance to admire it in Ried at the EUROMODEL a few weeks ago! And I must say it is outstanding and top notch! I like all the nice details...the farmers house, small motorcycle, plants...
