Hi,

Well the only build I have relevant to Splash is the old faithful 1/48 Tamiya Swordfish build from a few years ago. Apologise for posting the same pics again for those who have seen it before. Sleep

The model is suspended in tinted clear resin to simulate the sea water (maybe an article on the Splash SIG website on using resin?) and scratch built pier with various bits and pieces added for the dio:-























Thanks for looking

Doc Wink

Doc, no apologies require for posting it again on my account at least! (I hadn't seen this before). What a stunning diorama Shocked (beautifully done Doc). Certainly, for me, I would definately say yes to a 'How to make clear resin water bases' tutorial Cool.

Cheers

Derek

No need for apologies Doc! In many ways, this whole thing all started because of that build!

I still think it looks ace, and I prefer to Madmans version as well Wink

Agree with Jen, it's an iconic build in the history of GBs.
