Work of three evening.
The metal is only from figure bases (The missing link to post it in a figure forum :mrgreen: ) that I save all the time.

The instrument panel is with PE (Photo Etched) parts. Pure fantasy. There is a PE set made by Extratech but 90% of the parts of the frame are useless for me. Too thin, not round etc.
And hey ! My used PE parts are familiar with helicopter.
This are the surplus PE instruments of my Kolibri (hummingbird) intermeshing rotor helicopter of my Dio: Karlsson vom Dach.

A promising start ... that will end in a new masterpiece, like all your dioramas are, Wiking. :thumbup:

I will follow it with great interest. :-)

The base is from a new player.
Monroe Perdu Studios, USA.
I try some base as you can see.

MPD Studios
3168 RENEE CT
SIMI Valley, CA 93065 USA.

It is paper.
I glue it on the blank wood base with superglue.
paint it with watebased paint and as usual at last dry brushing.


I prepare as you already know my photo studio ...
