    Here's my completed project for the Aircraft Diorama Group Build. The Build Log is at:

http://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=7714.0

     This is my first attempt at a Diorama and, as I've stated in the Build Log, is admittedly more an enhanced Display Base then a true Diorama! The aircraft was completed with the Pheon Decal set, Aviattic "Naval Hex" Lozenge Decals, and an added Gas Patch Parabellum Gun in the Observer's cockpit. Various After market PE Tools were used, the refuelling Drum is an Aviattic Small German version, and the trestle work table and step ladder are scratch Built. The Display Base is finished with a Cobblestone Sheet product, planking from popsicle sticks, and some scrounged rail tracks to represent the Jetty surface in front of the Hangars at the Zeebrugge Seaplane Base in 1917.
    First, the aircraft as completed;



The Base as completed:




     .......and in no particular order here's the completed Diorama Scene:

    And this one is now on the Display Shelf. A great Kit and a fun project, hope you like it.
Cheers,
Lance

Very nice, Lance. All those side bits add a lot of life to the model, which is a fine one in its own, too. Congratulations!

You have turned a very fine model - something to be proud of in its own right, into a unique mini-display which has a huge amount of interest. Everything is extremely well presented - I especially like the tools and the trestle table. The whole mini scene looks extremely realistic. Well up to the normal very high standard that we know you present with all of your models.

Stephen.

Simply gorgeous, Lance!  The work you've done on the W.12 is first rate and the vignette really sets it of nicely!  I love it!  I can only hope mine will turn out half as fine.
Cheers,
Bud

Such a great rendition of such a unique looking plane! I love all that you've done with it, including all the diorama additions.
