Sky-Fi master Jon Hall is back with not only a brilliant new aircraft, but the wonderful home base of The Swordfish. The aircraft is a whimsical combination of pontoons, open cockpit, inverted gull wings, duel booms, bomber nose and pusher, and it just works. The base looks like a place I’d like to hang out and have a fruity tropical drink between sorties.
This maritime MOC by O0ger packs a lot of detail and storytelling into a relatively small but very interesting footprint. You can practically smell the salt air and fish, hear the lapping water and ships bells. I don't recall seeing this alternating rows of cones roof technique before, it makes for a very cool texture, but the excellent use of the seaweed is what really sells this diorama. It sets the time and setting in a glance, very effective.
