Just kidding...

I remember the first time I saw John's Seaview Diorama, that was the first time realized that I really hated the man!

Well, yes Tim, we all so dearly hate John. He never misses a chance to show us he is an incredible modeler.
;)

Never get tired of looking at that diorama, John. I wore out that issue of MR looking at the article...and of course drooling on the pages.

It is a fake,I know that is a screen grab from the movie.
Wait a minute, it is a model. Looks fantastic. My favorite submarine and my favorite scene from the movie. Take a bow.

well :D - all model indeed a 'fake' object compared to the real one :D
I mean it is what struck and impress me to going deeper into this hobby (imagining to have a 'part' of the ocean complete with a tiny-yet-real-looking subs sitting at one corner of my desk).

That IS the bow. I threw the stern away.

Yes, the dio looks great. Can the damage be repaired before the icebergs sink like they did in the movie?? ;) Sorry, couldn't resist that.

But seriously, do you have plans to restore it?

Yes, but the PL Seaview is a model of a model so that makes what we see on both screens fake.

Nah. Been there, done that, don't want to revisit it yet. Maybe some day.
