Since it’s been a while since my last Lightning, I decided to build another Tamiya one. To make it more interesting, I bought the Eduard base for it, some resin figures and built a table. I put resin ammo boxes and a .50 caliber machine gun on the table. I also printed out the Lightning’s design and put it on the table. Since the rest of the diorama seemed pretty empty, I 3D printed a couple oil barrels. Cutting the lid off one, I filled it with resting to make it look like there was water inside. The rest of the barrels I used the hairspray chipping technique on.
