Hell(er) of Mine

Very old and tiny kit of the minesweeper "Mercure" from the french brand . I chose the ship to experiment a diorama using water and Studio Acrylic gloss gel. I added photo-etched railings and Oerlikon canon, and photo-etched crew.
Note- I must admit I deeply wanted to remember those old green plastic capsules containing ... Heller glue!
Although yet completely dry, that meant a huge and warm flash-back to me!
Have a nice summer

    Fantastic idea, well made. Britfix is also a glue to remember.

  2. Really well done, love the water effect mate.

  3. Good looking layout! Great job on the water!

  4. Great looking model and diorama. Heller makes some unusual ships that really build up into a nice model.

  5. Agree with the above gents, caudelguille!
    A great result.
    Remembering with tenderness those small green or yellowish ampules containing the magic glue.
    Those were the lovely days of tender models put together in one afternoon.
    All the best!
