Making a diorama Chapter 10:
Moving on to Bigger things

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. It took me many hours and a lot of work to complete it.

You have learned many of the basic techniques for building terrific looking dioramas. These techniques work well regardless of the scale of your scene. I suggest you build several more small scenes then you can move on to larger scenes. Here are some photos of a large scene I am working on. It is seven feet long and four feet wide. I have specially built a wheeled table for it so I can roll it around the room and away from the walls to work on it.. I also have a video of this diorama if you want to check it out. See the waterfall actually working and the lights in action Video of Medieval Castle Diorama

You also can improve your scenery by adding lots of special effects. This scene has many working lights, working sound effects, a fully functional waterfall and a motorized drawbridge.
