    The idea about these little diorama, is to make the Raiden, crash landed on a beach in some place on the Pacific, this will be my first job on these subjects.

    I did small holes on the fuselage, to simulate the enemy machine guns shots

    I cut away the ailerons an the elevator, to put in a more real position

    I start to build the diorama base, so I did some Coconuts Trees

    I use Piano wire 1/16" and Tamiya masking tape to make the thr trunk.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So with Tamiya XF-52 and a weathering the result was this:


    [​IMG]

    The leafs I did with paper, I don´t know how these,paper is called in English, here in Brazil we call it Papel Vegetal, it was used to thechnical drawings.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The tips of the trunks I did with epoxy and the coconuts too

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Each Coconut Tree have around 3,5" and 4" tall, and the leafs about 1".

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So, as it is difficult to control the curiosity I made a dry fit.

    thanks to see :D

    Hi, I´m again,

    Some news...

    Today I paint the little pilot:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here with a One Dime coin:

    [​IMG]

    Here a idea about the size model:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I did a damage to the prop too ( I do not do the weathering yet)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The pilot on the plane ( I put it by side, to simulate that him was injuried trying to escape of the plane)

    [​IMG]


    The base is almost done, I put the Palm Trees (not all yet) and add some sand, and grass, I add too a abandoned boat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here looks like, almost done, I have to do now a lot of details to make it more realistic..


    [​IMG]


    by now is this....

    Thanks to see...
