How to Make a 1/72 Scale WW2 Tank Diorama

This is a comprehensive tutorial that shows you how to make a World War 2 diorama in the 1/72 scale. This tutorial uses some store bought materials like tanks and miniature figures but it also gives you a lot of great tips on how to improvise materials. I will take you through the entire process of making a WW2 tank diorama including showing you tips and techniques for assembling the tank models.


About the Scale

The scale of the diorama is one of the most important decisions you will make and you should decide on this before you purchase anything or start building anything. The larger the scale the better the detail and the larger the diorama. I use 1/72 scale in this tutorial because it is small, easy to work with and less expensive. All of the techniques I show you in this tutorial can be used for any scale at all.

In This Diorama I use several plastic models including a Sherman Tank and a Tiger Tank. I have short tutorials on how to make these tanks here:
