I found a kind of diorama for my 1/200 seaplane kits in the form of a (half-price, at the time ...) 1/200 kit of an oil rig platform, which It transformed into  seaplane support platform, with two catapults and cranes :

Wow, that's a big 'ole diorama, even at 1/200!  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Nice: it's like a 1940s version of that James Bond villan's hideout that was on an oil rig (Diamond are Forever?)
