UCHG 1/35 Core Fighter "Cenote" Diorama
modeler: ani

Ok, so I was wondering what does that "cenote" mean. so I search to my favorite website wikipedia haha to know its meaning.

so I found this ...

FOLLOWING QUOTED TEXTS FROM WIKIPEDIA

"A cenote (English: /sɨˈnoʊtiː/ or /sɛˈnoʊteɪ/; Spanish: [seˈnote]; plural: cenotes; from Yucatec Maya dzonot or ts'onot,[1] "well"[2]) is a natural pit, or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. The term derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya, "Ts'onot" to refer to any location with accessible groundwater. Cenotes are common geological forms in low latitude regions, particularly on islands, coastlines, and platforms with young post-Paleozoic limestones that have little soil development.

And yes it is indeed the exact word that we were looking for! anyway, this diorama is just simply epic in terms of details and realistic effects. The modeler or lets say the artist did an amazing job on everything about this kit. I love how real it is under the sunlight that the modeler used for the photography.

You must have probably seen this diorama a million times now but seems worth another share to you guys.

Yes, the scenery is also wonderful and it really does tell us some stories even if it is was not told. Anyway, the rocks on the cliff looks very real, and he managed to put some more realistic elements on the water too, that makes him even more talented artist.

The core fighter looks very real too after some realistic paint job like where the modeler did wash it with some wet effect.
