Diorama Man

 

WW2 Dioramas from Kits

Here are some really nice dioramas that were come from a variety of kits. These were built by Steven. My thanks to him for submitting the pics. And they are a good example of how you can add to a kit to enhance how it looks or how you can build a nice diorama around the kit. I will take a closer look at these and give you some pointers.

 

 

 

 

These next two pictures are of a Tamiya 1944 arnhem kit. And Steven enhanced it in a few different ways. He added the figures from his spare box and he scratch built the road with milliput modelling putty (Superfine White Milliput Epoxy Putty ) and the barrel and bricks are all hand built from Plaster of paris. This is a great example of how you can really enhance a diorama kit.

 

 

The following picture is of a Spitfire and it is mounted on a basic diorama display board. It looks really nice. This is a very fun way to display a project. I really like this kind of project because you put a lot of time into building the model and you want to display it in a really attractive way.
