Built as part of a 1/144 scale Group Build on another forum..............

The base is a Wilko's cheapo picture frame with Vallejo Atlantic blue acrylic gel waves..........

The real thing doing its stuff................

A very enjoyable build, simple yet different and very big for its scale..........................Tony

I don't think that is the Caspian Sea Monster Steve. I'm that one had quite a few engines/props if memory serves. I don't know of any body who makes a kit of that plane.

I love the subject and what you've done with it Tony. The diorama is brilliant. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers

You are correct Mark, the Caspian Sea monster is a different beast altogether, twice the size with a lot more engines...............Anigrand do a 1/144 resin kit of it, but I have have never seen one made.......
