Hoefully it will be in a small diorama when I finish it.

Size of diorama now determined. It's about 14cms square. Here is a picture of the prepared base before any colouring or clean-up.

Is the base pre-prepared? Bought? Homemade?

Homemade - a bit of plywood with filler spread on the top.
To colour it next.

Excellent, home made, typically Yorkshire.

It's looking good. How are you going to colour the base? sprayed Acrylic?

Hi Chris,
In your hands, this has the start of being an excellent helicopter diorama.
I watch and appreciate with interest.
Cheers,

Well here is the basic diorama laid out with the base painted. I've taken the inspiration from a photo I found which has the mix of barrels, sand bags and ballast filled woodwork. Got quite a  few sand bags to make yet.

Hi Chris,
Very nice to see this progress.
Need to check the clearance for the rotors?
