Diorama "Point 103"

Built between April & August 2019

 

I had wanted to build a model of aNazi flying saucer since I read the books of Henry Stevens. Although I seriously believe the entire notion to be utter tosh it did seem like a model-maker's dream. You can literally do anything with this topic. So I did.

 

I had in mind something like a scene from John Carpenter's "The Thing" but with our heroes finding a Haunebu sticking out of the side of a glacier. It is hard to tell from the photos but the saucer is actually painted and marked as one of Hitler's personal transport planes (an Fw-200 Condor). The swastikas have been replaced with Black Sun symbols in accordance with legend....

 

Photos of the pre-build kits can be found here.

The build of the chopper and saucer were unremarkable. The diorama is marked for its use of resin to create the glacier. The core of the ice is made with painted expanded polystyrene heavily coated with PVA wood glue to stope the resin dissolving it. Multiple resin pours were made with the entire diorama base propped up at an angle to build up the "ice" layers in the glacier. Then various layers of AK Interactive snow products were used to achieve the snow layer on top.
