Playing around with the scenery.... Not sure where the instructor should be located, but I think between the pilot and the wing will look best. Any suggestions?
Don't really have a suggestion, other than perhaps facing the trainees perhaps? Nice diorama thought.
Thank you; I decided for a simple diorama: the flight school was on a grass field so no real runway was needed, and creating the original building would probably require more skills than I can put together.
The idea of the instructor instructing the trainee is really good! I am actually considering this for a Soviet scene I am making. This diorama was kind of thought as a "Kodak moment" of a graduated pilot: I actually have some flight wings from the Danish Air Force that I want to put with either this one or my Britten-Norman Defender from the Danish Air Force Home Guard (which I haven't thought of a diorama for yet).
Could really use some good suggestions for a concrete colour? Preferably Humbrol or Revell email paint
i´ve built a concrete base for my ka-50
ammo´s concrete paste is good for the initial work because it has a light rough surface which is necessary for the next steps
when it´s dry i add a thin layer of concrete paste+plaster+water
when it is dry again grind off the surface a bit
as the last step i used a highly diluted allover wash made of brown and grey pigments and then grind it off again
I get a very good finish with it
Thank you Simon; I will see if they got it here. My initial idea was to lay "slaps" of grid 400 sand paper and colour it; but as the photos show it gets a bit too light (the white corners would get some grass to break off all the grey).

Completed the Matador for my Lancaster scene

Not quite sure if I should give it some matt or satin clear coat once the paint job is completely done.
Also needs a good concrete colour - preferably a Humbrol or Revell.
