Summer in Bastia

This is my latest project.It's a diorama in 1/35 scale and it's about the Mediterranean fleet of pt boats docking in Bastia. Construction  is 120x65cm and build with plaster board and pieces of plaster and wood(mainly balsa in various thickness)
The idea was given by the booklet that comes with the Italery kit of the 80feet elco pt boat. A photo showing the base in Bastia in Corsica during WWII gave me the spark to built this kit in grey colors and not in jungle green camo.

With little search I found photos of the harbor and decide to construct the last dock in the old harbor of the city with the green lighthouse. Measurements has taken and the project started.
