Good evening all,

I was browsing a local hobby page on Facebook, and they've posted up some photos of a superb Scapa Flow diorama in 1/700 scale. I was wondering if anyone knows who the original modeller was and if they are UK based?

For all of you with facebook, the link to the post is here


(Apologies, i've forgotten how to post images to TMP)

I was at Scapa last year. Magnificent spot. Grand Dad was on the Benbow there in WW1.

Very nice! I don't think the ship mix is possible though. Hermes was transferred south in October of '39 and I do not believe she ever came home again. If that is Valiant, her rebuild was not complete until November of '39 and Queen Elizabeth was not complete until '41.

The water is perfect, but everything else looks too colorful. grin

Seriously, that is a gorgeous little diorama. More photos and higher resolution here.

The modeler is Kostas Katseas, and he seems to be Greek, but I have no idea if he lives in Greece. He has more phenomenal dioramas on this site, and probably things in the other sections of the site too. I'd love to know how he created that water effect.
