  1. Beautifully done and photographed (I like the explosion’s reflection in the water – nice touch).

  2. Agree with Craig, the reflections are really something. I’d enjoy hearing about haw you created the effect. Great work.

  3. I am speechless when looking at your dioramas!!! This is museum quality work. Well done!!!

  4. Another museum display, Won-hui Lee! The whole miniature is outstanding, including the reflections. Outstanding!

  5. Very, very good job!

  6. Beautiful, Won-hui,

  7. Hello Won-hui,
    I have just seen “all” your contributions of today. What can I say.
    The most professional builder in this scale that I have seen so far.
    It is a joy to look at all the tiny details.
    Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  8. Won-hui, another masterpiece! Well done!

  9. Wow – no words really – I especially love the photos where you can’t see off the edge of the diorama – it just looks so real!

  10. Actually, Franklin was bombed by a Judy divebomber that popped out of the clouds and dropped two 250kg bombs, which hit among the deckload of fully-fueled and armed aircraft she was 20 minutes away from launching – the worst possible time. It wasn’t a kamikaze.

    This is very nice work in creating the explosion.

  11. Amazing talent!! great work.

  12. Very well presented.

  13. Another realistic sea scene, you’ve really got this down to a fine art.

  14. Very inspiring and impressive! Your water rendering is excellent and explosion scratch-building… quite something. Bravo!

  15. I’m so impressed with your work. You really capture motion and moment so well. Look forward to your future projects.
