Default 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.

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.

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.

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.
