Creating a Military Modelling Diorama

Terry Booker
Creating a diorama offers modellers a chance to display their figures and vehicles in a realistic setting, often providing a ‘snapshot’ of a moment in history. This book provides step-by-step instructions on how to plan, design and build a diorama and is suitable for new and more experienced modellers. With over 270 colour photographs, it considers all scales from 1/87 (H0) to 1/32 and their implications for the diorama builder. The importance of research to ensure historical accuracy is emphasized. Advice is given on the creation of dioramas in different scales and sizes. It demonstrates the techniques required to achieve effective results for landscapes, terrain and vegetation. Finally, examples are included from the
Napoleonic Wars, American Civil War, World War I and World War II.

About the author

Terry Booker is normally associated with the world of model railways, be he has an equally long-term interest in military modelling. He is a regular exhibitor at local shows, and hope that this book is as much inspirational as it is instructional. This is his fourth book for Crowood.

Press Reviews

This book is a very useful primer on producing dioramas, both as a guide to new modellers and a source of guidance to the more experienced ones. It is thoroughly recommended.
