    This is my latest, Opel Manta 400. Another model I made some time ago but now I've added the weathering and created a diorama of a rally stage. I really enjoy making the models and it's great to use them to create a story.

    I had a few Mantas over the years, ranging from a standard 1.6 with Del Orto twin carbs, a GTE and a B series hatchback with an Opel Monza 3.0 litre straight six which went like stink but had serious electrical problems under the bonnet. I was going to have a new wiring harness made but it blew the head gasket and despite skimming the head it never ran well again and was sold on. I'd like to have another one but any decent ones left are just too much money.

    These are great pieces of work Ian, mighty impressed.
    I was just thinking the Russian sub reminded me of the one in " voyage to the bottom of the sea ".
    It took me back to the one and only diorama I made, which was a small scale Airfix Leander Class Frigate, which I mounted on a small piece of ply and sculptured Polyfilla to resemble the sea (and painted up as best I could). Sort of like yours, but not as well executed.
    ......... Many years ago my wife (who wasn't at the time) bought me a Tamiya Tiger tank for Christmas and I think it's still boxed in our loft. You've got me thinking now !!
    About the same time as getting the Tiger, I saw several models made up to a standard I could only dream of and the paintwork in particular was something else. I asked the guy in the shop if they had been air brushed, but he said the paint had been applied by a technique call 'dry brushing'.
    If I get round to assembling it, I will have to try that technique.
    Keep up the good work

    Thanks Mark, the dioramas are a new thing for me, thank god for you tube lol. I've just started something rather different and to be honest I'm not really sure how to go about it but that's the thing for me, trial and error. I remember the Sea View from Voyage to the bottom of the sea, I loved that when I was a kid.
    Definitely have a go at the Tiger, it's a great model and when it comes to paint just take your time. Dry brushing is a technique to add highlighted edges and any raised areas on a painted surface. It creates shading and makes details stand out in a natural way. I'm relatively new to airbrushing but I'm getting to grips with the basics and I'm finding the effects you can get are amazing. I made the mistake of buying a cheap airbrush and compressor set and honestly it was pretty horrid. I shelled out for a decent airbrush and a compressor with a receiver tank, variable pressure settings and a proper water trap, it made a huge difference to the quality of finish and is actually easier to use. All that being said if you take your time with some decent brushes you can get very high quality finishes too.
