Adie Roberts continues his inspirations to help inspire modellers of all abilities to work out of their comfort zone building dioramas or just trying new builds.

IJN SUBMARINE I400 DIORAMA this amazing diorama from an equally amazing modeller and friend Hyun Soo Kim. This work began when I tried to make a simple waterline diorama with I400 submarine which I completed while back. It went out of control and this is the result. I tried to complete the work by last July so I could display it at the Malaysia Penang Scale Model Show, however it got delayed for 5 months for it to be completed. Other than the submarine itself most of it is scratch build. I tried to use North Star figures but could not find product that fits the storyline I had in my mind so I came up story where the submarine being captured by the US Navy. However Mr. Sooyong Heo supplied me with 3D printed figures and I was able to build it as I originally had planned. The storyline of this diorama is that a submarine is briefly hiding from the enemy during on going battle by utilizing the island as a cover. I am well aware that it is physically impossible for a submarine to be moored at such location but it is just a concept for the diorama so please try to understand.
