Hi Gentlemen, I'm already on my next project and hope it will end with an success. Lol

 

I saw this picture and fell in love with the scene:

And I had an Eduard 1/48 F6F-3 Hellcat leftover and bought a frame in my vacation. The escaping pilot I found from Verlinden

So lets make the first cut

And dry fit testing

Great thing with Eduard are the separate rudders and flaps

But its strange, the flaps are not mean to set in a lowered position, so try to build the inside with a little putty

The Eduard PE seatbelts are not bad in 1/48.

And now lets start a little with the waves and the bubbles in the water, just with Acrylic Gel and white acrylic color

Gentlemen. After finishing the last few things like the antenna wiring and a few wet spots, I declare my ditching dio as finished. Maybe I will try the head and the face once again.

My first water dio, but for sure not my last. Must say that it was just fun and learned that next time I will try a different way, so that it more looks like water.

 

Thanks
