Seaplane Dioramas Part Two

Description

 

This is the second of two seaplane dioramas. It was built in 2005.

I used the same "water technique" as in my S6B diorama again and built a fictitious scene with a Grumann Goose. I started with the very well detailed 1/48 scale kit by Signifier (which is nonetheless not the easiest to assemble).

 

 

Together with a very nice decal sheet (No 48goose1) by Draw Decals I created a civilian Alaskan Airline Goose.

I included the one door window on the left that I found on the instruction sheet in the bag, but was too late to also put in the right window which I discovered subsequently on the internet. Im not too happy with the nose section of the fuselage because the upper curve of the front windows is not symmetrical and the shape of the roof section right above the windows is too angular.

Last but not least: as the original Goose only had a two-blade propeller without a spinner, I reverted to spare parts from the spares box.

 



The author would like to thank ESPECIALLY Ms Christiane Brodhage to dedicate a full hour and a half of her precious free time (on a Sunday, of all days) to writing a long article about things WHICH SHE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND IN THE LEAST.
