Close Encounters

Post by Shoey on Thu 20 Aug 2015, 12:56 am

Hello again. Here is a diorama from the Spielberg classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
This is my attempt to recreate the famous railway scene with the space ship above.
This one was the long wheel based 1/25 scale AMT F250. I shortened it about 10mm hope you like.

I loved the movie when it came out. And I love this dio even more. If you had included the little ship in that scene, I would have bought this diorama in split second.
