Well said! I don't think I have the patience to do that myself, but it sure is impressive when you see something as good as this!

Jaldo, your work is top notch! Beautiful.
Here is my most recent build (He-219) on a small display stand I put together.

Guys,I did not build those models,they were built by modelling friends which names I wrote above.
I just glue the plastics and put some paint on it.
Here's one diorama that I did:

Here's the only diorama I've ever managed to finish..built about 15 years ago. It's a B6N2 "Jill" (1/72 Fujimi kit) pushed off the edge of an airfield somewhere in Japan in the fall of '45. The green and white surrender markings were crudely brush painted over the exhisting Hinomarus, and some of the canopy glass has been bashed out by curious GIs. After the war, all Japanese aircraft were ordered flown to collection points, and had the props removed to prevent their use by any fanatical "insurgents." I probably should have added shredded fabric on the control surfaces, but didn't feel like going that much trouble.
The grass is from the model railroad section..the tall brush is chopped twine, and the trees are some weeds I found outdoors. I made a small stream with clear acrylic.

That is a cool diorama! My dad wants to build two Betty's in the surrender markings, flying with the two B-25's.
