Kent, you have created an absolutely jaw-dropping diorama that is magnificently crafted and exquisite to see.
Such a beautiful display that tells a wonderful tale. Each element looks superb.
I am very, very impressed. Great job, well done.
Would it be possible to ask for a couple of larger resolution images please?
If so, I'll send you my e-mail addy via pm.

Thanks for taking the time to share this fabulous creation,

Cheers.

World class, Kent. Really. It's so complete from being historically accurate to being incredibly detailed not to mention massive. The WIP really showed us  how hard and intensively you worked, too. Nothing great is ever easy. Bravo!

Thank you gentlemen, your too kind, I'm almost moved to tears by your very kind comments!

 

It really was a labor intensive project, but except for the rigging I enjoyed every minute of it!

These were my first biplane builds, in a large scale, with some very steep learning curves.

But I must say, I'm almost at the point of being hooked on these old 'kites' with their wood,

linen and wires, the carpenter in me just love working with 'wood' even though its artificial ;-)

 

And yes, the history is important, I can't do a project without some kind of historical background.

This is what 'fuels the fire' and prevents these projects from stalling or even ending up on the

'shelf of doom'. As I mentioned in another thread, when I visited various museums in my younger

years, it was always the dioramas that fascinated me, to me they do something that photos and

maps, or even the real 1:1 can't, they bring history to life in a 'real' setting or environment, in a

way you can almost feel and touch history, the people the landscape etc... 

 

So to bring this project to an end, I reworked a S.e.5a profile from 'Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 78'

 

These are the men and their machines:

Kent..
Precisely.. I agree. I love dioramas for that very reason ! :thumbsup:

you deserve all the accolades you get for this OUTSTANDING Diorama.

in MY humble opinion the Aviator is the one who makes the Aircraft he flies famous/infamous and very noteworthy.
without these Fantastic Aviators/pilots WE would never hear of their exploits and bravery and heroic actions.

you have brought that to your SUPERB, well researched thoughtful diorama.

AWESOME workmanship and presentation.

WOW...

I bet Taffy found that Sidcot flying "suit" a little on the awkward/uncomfortable side!

I wondered on whom you had portrayed the man with the walking stick in uniform..

Ah I see its Timbertoes Carlin..

As I said I admire dioramas as they depict far more than a single solitary aircraft/jet in a display cabinet.

Marvelous and Jolly Splendid in Timbertoes voice!

:goodjob: :clap2:

Kent.

 

I fully believe this astounding work of yours deserves to be in a museum.

 

No question.

 

I tend to view the world through the eyes of a musician. As such I quantify work in that way.  

 

Your work reminded me of these fellows.

 

Earl Palmer. 35,000+ recordings. Creator of the "Rock beat".

 

Steve Gadd. Also known as "Steve God". (Eric Clapton apparently pays him more than $20,000.00 USD per week!)

 

The Wrecking Crew.

 

Too many to name. Needless to say, World Class!

 

As a former pro' muso, I reckon this stuff is too good to give away for free. You should publish books and get a return for your work. For a muppet such as I? No worries. My work isn't worth a penny.

 

You?

 

Kent. Get PAID!

 

I'd buy your book.

Too stunning for words!  Having said that, the combination of your superb skills and the multiple model scope of the project elevate this to the upper level of "master work."  An amazing accomplishment and work of art.
