Made: 2018

RS- Models: Flettner 282
Figures: Preiser, Noch, Cäsar, Zvezda, SGT`S Mess, Monty`s Models, Tanks vs Panzer, IMAI,
Black dog model, Dusek

I do not want to land this helicopter on a simple flat base as seen always in the internet of build ones.
I get two ideas. One landing on a Fährendeck (roughly say a raft) from Dragon on a water base.
Because the German Navy get interest for the Flettner 282. And do test on ships with it.
Or the idea you can see now.
My stash for house was very limited. So it took me a while till I came across an old never finished and cannibalized Dio. Breake down the two house segments very easy. Look at my small stash of bases. Hold the three side house in hand. Find the quarter base.
Fit !
The other house segment will sit beside.
Then I cut a few big parts of the 282 for checking the size. Put the houses on the base, hold the 282 basic parts close to it. Will do !
An idea, material exist, a few weekends spare time.
GO !

I really like things like that.
Use the old stuff (houses) combined with something to do (Flettner 282) and a few useful figures as bits and bobs around.
And all that on a base I thought at home after buying it several years ago: " Do you really will use such a small base ever?"

For naming the Dio there are three titles in my mind.
1. Adlertag: Long time my fafourit.
2. Robi, Tobi und das Fliewatüt: There is no Robi (Robi is an robot).
3. And the used one: This idea I get suddenly yesterday.

Wiking,

really nice idea and nice dio - as you have done before many times.
Didn't know that there were already some helicopter prototypes around at that time.
It is painful to me to see the svastika painted on Karlsson. Otherwise it is such a peaceful and even funny scene. Well, history.

Great work. Keep going
Michael

Thank you for the nice words.
Flettner do some helicopter who will work. With two rotore in an angle. Or an huge one with the rotore side by side.

German model airplanes of that time seams to be a problem. Or more precise the sign at the end.
But not at the model shows outside Germany I have visit or seen.
It is too big to ignore it like several sign of that time I do not paint on to the figures.

Amazing !!! :shock: Wiking, you have outdone yourself. :yeah: The diorama is fantastic. So much on such a small base. What a pleasure !!!!!! :-D Again, so much to see.
By the way, that is a really unfavorable place for refueling .... ;-)

I can just picture the advertising blurb. "You can land it ANYWHERE!".

Lovely dio once again Wiking. Beautiful modeling, painting and composition.But I do think the guy on the ground could have mentioned he had a pump before the pilot tried to syphon it. :xd:

I guess the kid on the scooter is too young to read?

Those rotors are a mind bending bit of technology. :shock:

Now I remember, there was also a rallycar-driver called Karlsson on the roof. He probably drived like that.

Or drove he?????

What a positive surprise for me to a very small detail.
I did not thought that someone will read what is written on the sign
and link it with the kid on the scooter.
And you are right. He is too young and get hurt in a few seconds. :stressed:
Just a minor brick on the wall. :-D
And never (!) expect that by a person from Down Under !
You can read (speak ?) German ?

But without rotors. But an input for the Dio.

No, but Bing Translate can. :mrgreen:

I kind of worked out most of the sign but had to check a few details.
