"MSW crew-mate Augusto Martinez (rea00cy) shares an action packed diorama of fabulous modeling, in this MSW Feature!"

This diorama represents several minor Kriegsmarine units in a hypothetical scenario where they are under attack by naval and air forces of the enemy. Mayhem spreads throughout the whole formation, and while the leader ship is requesting permission to fire. their crews have manned their battle stations, make evasive maneuvers and set smoke generators into action. A U-boat is caught surfacing and near missed by an enemy bomb.

The kits are all 1/400 scale from Heller with Tauro model flags. Generic PE and scratch built details were added. My approach to model-water making using thin plastic films is extensively used in this diorama. It is going to be a featured SBS article soon.

Acknowledgement:
I wish to express my most sincere gratitude to mate David J Salvin for calling my attention regarding the color of the water in this diorama and to all other fellow modelers that contributed to this subject in the forum following my request.

Well done, Augusto! Your sea is one of the most lurid and dramatic I've seen in a combat diorama. Kudos as well for the spray and water splash work. I will definitely look forward to the step-by-step feature! --Karl
