  1. Very nice. Good!!

  2. Awesome- especially the posing of deck crew!

    I crave more info! scale? kits? is the elevator base a kit? homemade?
    I want to do the same with two of my 1/48 A-6E’s for operation praying mantis (tanker wars).
    I actually already have a 1/48 A-7E already built in markings for that operation on the same carrier with the A-6’s i am planning.

  3. WOW, wow, wow. this is an amazing build, what more can I say………..

  4. Really well done! Love that carrier aviation! Nicely composed and placed!

  5. Exemplary workmanship, sir….outstanding indeed! Welcome to iModeler….

  6. IMHO this is one of the best carrier deck dioramas I have come across in every aspect. Well at least one of the best representing this cold-war era. The aircraft, deck vehicles, figures, and actual deck are top notch!!! Jealous as all hell!

  7. Definitely a master builder. Museum quality build sir.

  8. Everything to the same level – the mark of an excellent diorama. A “moment in time” for navair.

  9. A real beauty! Love everything about it (but I have to say the two stars of the show both have wings…)

  10. Hello Rafael,
    Very powerful diorama. I studied it, but almost everything seems to be there.
    My highest compliments for this impresssive result.
    Dirk / The Netherlands.

  11. Thank you very much for all kind words. I will add some more photos, because there will be a few corrections.

  12. Reality in miniature. Fantastic work, Rafael!
