    Well done Rick, for a first attempt at a diorama, it's brilliant. What kind of skyhooks do you use to keep the helicopter up in the air?

    Cheers, Nerys

    For a first attempt I reckon that's pretty damn good Chiffs๐Ÿ‘
    I wouldn't know where to start 'making waves'.

    Thanks Doug, toilet tissue and PVA glue mixture works well, can form into whatever shape wanted allow 24 hours to dry then paint , well worth messing about with , and cheap too

    You have done a great job.
    I expect we can look forward to seeing more dioramas from you.
    Keep up the good work.

    The second example uses TinFoil and airbrush

    Hi Ron,
    That is looking good so far.
    Maybe you should start a new thread on this.
