Most realistic simulated fire I have ever seen in a diorama!
 
Found this on Facebook......the end result is simply stunning!

Wow! The underside area and smoke is incredibly realistic. I don't know about the three pointed flames coming up the back of the fuse though, they look a little like the old fake fireplace flames made of thin film. I think it would have been a little better without those. Not trying to be too critical cause it's still better than anything I could have done or have even seen.:thumbs-up:

Too cool, The talent in todays modeling is just Amazing! Back when I used to build as a kid, You never saw builds like this!

Thanks Colin :thumbs-up:

whow !! incredibly living !!
no idea on what he used to simulate the fire ?

looks like some kind of gel...

Kelly Quirk April 27th, 2013 04:32 PM

I'm betting he has some LED's in there too...

Ya know I was thinking the same thing Kel but after looking at the reposted pic Colin showed us I;m not so sure. I;m thinking its some kind of material "Resin/formed foam" painted and shaded with the black cotton smoke added at the ends of said material.
BUT it is powered since the prop is still turning soooo if may have some light from undernieth. but if Ihad to bet I would go with awesom paint job with neon/fluorescent paints.

That's bad ass. Period.

Colin K April 28th, 2013 04:35 AM

If you guys look at the nose of the drop tank.....does that look kind of like cellophane to anyone?

I'm glad the pilot e-handled the engine prior to egress!

That is a wicked cool diorama.

Here's another angle. Sorry, it's the only other pic i could find.

It does look like cellophane to me too. I would bet that the builder used some of those fire effect LEDs that model railroaders use.

Dang that looks good. The only way I know how to replicate fire and smoke in a crash diorama involves lighter fluid, a firecracker, and a match. :D

Actually, since he's already using the orange cellophane, he may have just needed a couple of regular yellow christmas lights to add the intensity in the light, and then allow tha natural shadows within the folds, and paper itself to sell the rest.

Whoever signed off that deckhands PQS for flightline fire fighting should be fired. That guy obviously wasn't paying any attention. Scatter the flames with the water buddy!!!!! lol.

I'm absolutely kidding, this is stellar on every level.

My jaw.. just dropped to the floor..

Holy hell, that is quite convincing! It sure is amazing how inventive today's modelers are!

Big Texan April 30th, 2013 11:15 AM

This truly is an outstanding job! :thumbs-up:
