21.12.2012 i dived the Similan Islands in Thailand and was so amazed that i had to build the main bay called DONALD DUCK BAY.
About this creation
Normally i'm not into building landscapes or even jungles, but as i did my first ever dives in this absolute surreal looking environmet, i had to give this a moc! The waters are so amazingly blue there and these supersmooth round granite boulders everywhere.. It was a bit a challenge to do something organic, round and fading blue as that, but i think i achieved it at least a bit, you might tell me after you've been there ;-) I will definitely soon be back to thailand for some more similan diving to get deeper into this scuba world. What i didn't include into the model (mostly because of the scale) were all the animals on the islands and underwater. i found bearded scorpionfish, stingrays, lots of reef fish and a barracuda. maybe after i got from next time, i'll do a closeup on a divesite to continue a bit in organic landscapes, let's see ;-)
The Iconic main bay of the biggest of the nine islands i called Donald Duck bay, because of a Donald-Duck-face-shaped granite boulder, so i couldnt resist to get Donald himself in. I dedicated this model to a friend of mine, who is currently running a divecenter in the area and helped me out getting there - Thanks a lot again, it was an awesome time, mate!
As always, most pictures of this moc are on my own website.
