As do I, and I'm impressed by the simulated gunfire on the US Battleship model, very realistic and it's something that's very difficult to do.

I wonder how they did it?  LEDs in the gun blasts? :banghead:

Maybe, but it just looks like extremely well painted cotton wool to my tired old eyes ?

There was an accompanying sheet of notes.  I probly should have taken a snap of it.  IIRC the orange in the blasts is hair dye.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

It never ceases to amaze me how modeller's brains work sometimes.

Cotton wool has a lot of potential for small scale explosions and gunfire - the gunfire here appears to me as if several "balls" had been sculpted, airbrushed/spraxed and then clogged together. Looks very good, and I have seen a diorama some time ago with a buring aircraft of a carrier deck, with LED lights hidden in the deck illuminating the cotton wool clusters from below. Very dramatic.

I've seen that too, not only dramatic but very very good too.

P.S. I think it was a WWII USN diorama with a Hellcat that was on fire.

That's EXCEPTIONAL!  :thumbsup:

You can almost feel the heat!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
