Pacific Rescue
Pacific Rescue - Catalina and Corsair
About this creation
The diorama shows a Catalina flying boat coming to rescue a pilot of a Corsair, who had to land after his plane had been damaged.
A unit of the Japanese forces was nearby this place.

Diorama was inspired by this painting made for this story.
(During one of the missions in February 1944 Lt. (jg) Nathan Gordon's crew landed four times under enemy fire saving 15 Fliers)

(Built in October 2008)

Reminds me of the Dogfight 1942 level where you save the PT boat crew, then bombing the Japanese garrison on the island. Awesome build!

When i saw the main picture i just thought "that cant be Lego, why does this dude upload a plastic model kit diorama??!?" Then i noticed, it is Lego! Just awesome! The Corsair is great, the Catalina is great and the way u included that catalina into the sea for real looking is epic! 5/5

A very aggressive build. I mean, you straight up built your way through every single challenge. I am especially impressed with the way the fighter is mashed into the sand (at an angle that is diagonal to the natural lines of the studs...very well done!). This is by far the best PBY I have seen in LEGO. Again, well done. Attack!

What an awesome, lovely, fantastically detailed diorama/vignette! So cool how you made the flying boat´s nose whirl up the water with white bricks; then the stranded Corsair, how it pushed up the beach´s sand to a little mini dune... Great stuff! Best regards, Steffen

oh i've heard a story about something like that: In Truk lagoon The fighter was going around 340mph and the plane was not supposed to go that fast and to add to the problem the plane was pulling negative G's litterly pulling the pilot out of his seat. and then he dropped his bombs and then was hit by a piece of shrapnel and his plane went into a spiral and then landed in the water and was resqued

Hi. Yes - in October / November 2008 probably. I'm just updating my MOCpages profile with 2008 creations. This diorama took about a year to complete. Half a year - the Catalina, and half a year the surroundings. Thank you for all comments :o)
