I’ve selected a Mosquito and Tiger I from the beautifully moulded Pit-road 1:700 kits S32 and MI02
The Tiger is presented on a small scrap of turf (PVA base) with an explosive cloud
Painted and decalled ready for the resin
The diorama is set in Crystal Clear epoxy resin using a 6.5cm cube silicone mold.
Holding the Mosquito in place for the CA glue to set it in position for the next resin pour
I used the multiple resin pour technique: 1 for the base, 1 for the Tiger, and 1 for the Mosquito
Popped from the mould after 48hrs to cure
Carve and polish the meniscus away
