D-Day plus 4 - Diorama of the Day

by Kasper Fischer

This amazing scratch-build 1/72 scale US Coast Guard patrol boat and diorama was created by Michael Maynard and published on The boat itself is a fantastic model but the diorama really brings it to life. I think it's very interesting to see all the activity on the dockyard and when ever I see work like this, I always start to create a back-story in my head. Maybe the boat was attacked by a 109 in the English channel, trying to pick up a downed pilot. Michael is calling the diorama 'D-Day Plus 4' so maybe it was damaged during the invasion. 

Michael has posted a bunch of close-up pictures on the website so please follow the link and check out all the nice details.
