To all those venerable posters....

If Red Lancer says it will be okay, it will be okay,....

Not sure what Japanese is 'for okay'....

But in Yorkshire.... 'It'll be alright!!'

It'll be reet!

I stand corrected, 'It'll be reet' as Haddock points out in his best Yorkshire
Cheers,

Even real Flamborough Head chalk, gets in on the act.
The raw stuff,
Crushed up and placed at the bottom of the cliff.

Hi Zak,
I was there on Sunday, and I noticed that the chalk had eroded a little bit since my last visit, now I know why.
The diorama looks great.

Blocks finished with the paste and now drying, when dry will paint them and add the graffiti.
The base has now had coats of dark and light grey added wet on wet.

Hi Msea,
That road surface looks real, in fact it looks so real, it could be 'somewhere' in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the current status of road surfaces that I drive over in places.

Yeah, went and broke it trying to fit it in the fuselage properly. Had to do another mod to get a proper fit. Why do I work with such small stuff?

Hi Chris,
I built one of these a few years ago, it is a tiny airframe, needing the manipulation of fingers more suited to a Sci-fi film.
But although small, I'm sure you will turn out something 'special'.
Hang on in there, Chris, your next model could be a 'Chinook' or something similar in size to make up for this one.

It slides up and down the bait band to hold the bait in place, made out of old fishing line.
Haddock.

You never stop learning....

If anyone asks me what a 'Snotter' is I now have the answer.

See, the benefits of belonging to such a diverse modelling club.

Hi Chris,
Apply 'TLAR' ...... That Looks about right.
If your happy with the result then that's okay. Rivet counters..... Bah, Humbug!

Hi Msea,
Love the attention to detail.
Don't worry about the Zombies having your brain, they will give it back when they find it is of no use to them..... Ho,ho,ho,ho

Hi All,
Thanks for all your comments.
Model now finished.
And Chris, I've now got a 1/350 Sunderland so maybe the next sub build might be a diorama.
Some pictures of the finished item follow.
Cheers,

Hi Bill,
Great looking Diorama, and such an unusual slant on something we are familiar with.
Are we missing a 'clapper board'?

Till it's mounted on a base, I have to call this complete.
There is a Walrus to fit but it's a horrible thing so you'll
have to imagine it's out on patrol.
Haddock.

Hi Haddock,
Re - the Walrus, it was rather ugly and ungainly, but I'm sure your 'touch' would work wonders.
The rest of the build, Superb.

Framed again.

Hi Zak,
No he's not been framed, he definitely did it!
