It may be on an armour discussion board (Missing-Lynx), but it's more aircraft related:

Very good work/craftsmanship.....however.........

It's not something I would do or even want in my collection to display. To me, and this is just me, I would not want to create a diorama or scene like this. It's just a bit too disturbing and macabre.

I know that others may feel differently and that's their right but it just ain't my cup o' tea. It in no way diminishes the modeler's talent, however.

...it IS the reality of war.

I felt it was a very somber reminder, and like you I see the excellent workmanship.

It's very nice work, but I agree with you. I wouldn't want to be looking at that regularly. Additionally, any aircraft that came apart that badly would not show much left of the pilot, especially posed in a way suggesting he got out of the cockpit and somehow crawled away. This plane disintegrated and so would the crew.

you would have found out that the colors in the water do not represent blood. They are the builders representation of of the fluids (fuel, hydraulic and other oils) leaking from the aircraft.

Very impressive, I always shake my head when people get offended by diorama's about war that don't show happy scenes of people enjoying themselves. It's war, this stuff occasionally happens. I've only ever done one diorama, a crashed plane and I showed the pilot dead in the c/p with some blood and burns. Brought it to a LHS to show the owner(I bought the stuff for it there) and some guy went off on me about my disgusting inclusion of the pilot. I just asked him what does he think happens when a plane crashes?

Except it's based of an actual photograph that pretty much looks the same.

Actually the "story" could be told just as well without the figure.

Having been on the scenes of several small plane crashes not as devestating as this one, I will tell you a pilot would not be in this condition after such a trauma.

Part of the "story"? Possibly posed for the propaganda value of a photograph?

This war is still too recent in many of our memories to be comfortable with a scene such as this.

All in all, amazing modeling just not all that comfortable to view....yes, it is war, but so are other events of war we shy away from in our modeling.

Just simply my opinion.

that all such scenes could have ended with an intact pilot looking up toward the Sandy flying cover and the jungle penetrator being lowered by the Jolly Green. Then again, I wish there were no shoot-downs. Then again...
