WW1 diorama


Recommended Posts

You can go on forever but I think I've just about got the the point where I think this diorama is acceptable.  Its been a throughly enjoyable couple of hours per night project over many days during the past six months and I've gradually added various elements as it has gathered momentum.  I thought it might add a bit more dynamism to the diorama with an led backdrop to reflect early morning or evening light and I've drawn in a background scene in pencil to help tie it all together.  I used Woodland Scenics realistic water for the shell craters but even though I sealed the surface before using, it doesn't dry flat and I must have topped it up about four times so far with no appreciable difference.  I appreciate the trench design is more British than German but lets just assume that the Brits are trying to recapture old territory.  Any constructive comments would be much appreciated.  Cheers.

This is amazing - a very well planned and superbly laid-out diorama, great model and figures with realistic detail, and some atmospheric photography. (I just don't like dead bodies on a model even when it's a war scenery... 😕)

Fantastic work! 👌 


Lots of detail and mini stories like the two Germans and British soldier at the end of the trench.  The backdrop really adds to the atmosphere too ....👏
