Some Pictures of Trenches in a diorama

This is a great series of pictures of a Trench Diorama that was made by Alec R. My thanks to him for submitting these pictures. This is a great example of a complex series of trenches.

 

Here are some tips from Alec on how he made this diorama:

Basically used a 4x2 board of wood for the base, then I cut long strips of cardboard from boxes, I bent them and taped them down for the layout of the trenches, filled in the areas between the trenches and no mans land with crumpled up newspaper, sorta taped it down to give it an uneven look, then i used plaster of paris and paper towel strips to go over it, then after that dried I put down a layer of forest green spray paint for a base, then added different colors like a more dirty green, brown, and a sandy color for the terrain, then I just hot glued the figurines down.

NZ Army Diorama

Glen makes an amazing diorama with layers of terrain. He uses polystyrene and air dry clay to shape the terrain. And he shows us a neat technique for using a hair dryer and air-dry clay to create the terrain shape. The NZ Army Diorama
