Complete idiot beginner here
I've never made a diorama of any type before, but I love the look of these flooded resin casting things. Want to make one myself, and did a quick (terrible) concept sketch. Essentially just an underwater plane crash site, with the plane in a few pieces and some vegetation, rocks, and wreckage scattered on the seabed. Have a few questions though, because I have no idea how this works.
-Is this even a reasonable thing for a beginner to tackle? Or is it way too complex?
-Where would I go about finding a small-ish (2-3 inches?) but somewhat detailed model jet airliner?
-How much would something like this cost, assuming I have no materials or supplies already? Any chance I could keep it under, say, $50?
-Would it be possible to have a little boat on the water's surface or would that just sink into the resin as it sets?
-Is there anything else I should know beforehand/any questions I'm too dumb to have even thought of?
Thanks for any help, these scale models have always been really impressive for me so it'd be neat to make and have one.
