    This is an Airfix 1/72 Kingfisher my brother built and painted. He gave it to me so I weathered it up a tad and slapped it on a small plaque with the aircraft making a water landing. The water is Extra Thick Artist Gloss Medium with Model Master's dark sea blue acyril paint.

    I like the way this little diorama finished up. It's much eaiser to display too!

    I like it! The wake effect is particularly convincing.

    Nice job on the diorama. Your brother did a fine job on a challenging little kit.

    Agree with all. Never tried making water like that but if I do, I would hope it turns out that good.
