I have seen a great deal of dioramas that depict such scenes as aircraft being repaired or maintained or just simply parked on the ramp being prepped for a mission. There has also been dioramas that show a glimpse of carrier Ops.
But I'm curious, has anyone done a diorama of an aircraft...
I recently purchased the Academy 1/72 P-47D (Razorback) kit, want to build a diorama depicting when P-47s were ferried to the Marianas on escort carriers. The 318th group P-47s launched off the Manila Bay because of Japanese aircraft in the area.
Has anyone scratch built an aircraft carrier...
