Development Project 1: Wolgov Birdge Battle

Constructing a diorama consist of phases while painting of the various models and figures can proceed in parallel. There is no single path to follow. Creativity, improvisation and ingenuity come along your journey of modelling with joy. Attend to an original image is just a direction, but don’t fear to diverge. Neither did I. I would rather say that the results became even better than was planned.

Sometimes a goal can't be achieved because of missing the resources or it just doesn’t work out the way you want it and for the sack of time... Everything is adjustable afterwards at later point in time. Although after placing the plastic soldiers for instance it would be harsh to accomplish.


Having said that the steps are shown consecutive picture style to provide a clear idea of the development in different stages. Some choices were after all not very smart or questionable. However the finish counts. As the first real diorama it ain't that shabby. Remember that I had only 1 week to finish off the job.

Конец ( The End )

A week of hard labor has resulted in this diorama depict of a battle scenario between two mighty armies with supporting vehicles and even a flying airplane possible. A delight for the eye to check for every corner where are details hidden and no empty spot neglected.
