It works on 1/350 being the main construction the French submarine L'Triomphant by Hobby Boss. The submarine had no major construction problems, replacing the masts with others made of wire and copper wire, a bow hatch was also opened, the bollards were remade giving them dimension by means of small pieces of plastic and holes were opened in the stern part like the ones in the illustration and which is supposed to be in the turbine room. The hole was divided into two and machinery made with other pieces of leftover models was added. The open plates were made with plasticard. Although it does not appear in the diorama, it was represented with a crane removing one of the missiles. The rest of the diorama is made up of six trucks, boxes and figures from the L'Arsenal catalogue. The barrels are made with leftover sprue and the mills are mostly made with copper wire, leftover propellers or scracht. The smaller crane is from Niko model and has been modified. The one that appears removing the missile is made in scracht from real models with the capacity to remove the weight of the missile. Other elements such as tanks, radar tower, scrap metal, etc., are made from leftovers and copper wire, adding scales and other pieces such as a leftover Seahawk from another construction.

This work is documented since its inception in where you can see its development.
