  • Scale Model Handbook: Diorama Modelling 1

    MRB SMH-DM01

    29,95

    2nd edition, updated cover with same content!

    100 pages.

     

    Welcome to the first book about modelling dioramas in Mr Black Publications series of Scale Model Handbooks. They promised in their first issue that our publications would eventually cover a greater variety of military modelling themes and now their first special issue dedicated to various types of dioramas has come to fruition!

    While gathering material for such a special book they soon realized that it wouldnt be possible to cover everything they wanted to in our standard 52-page format, so a 100-page book became inevitable to provide more coverage and satisfy the requirements of our readers. Different approaches, techniques and step-by-step instructions are covered in more than 400 photographs and associated texts to inspire you, the reader, to make your own creations.

    DIORAMA MODELLING 3

    “The Diorama Art – Between History and Myth” by Vasilis Triantafyllou

     

    Welcome to “Diorama Modelling 3” in Mr Black Publications’ Scale Model Handbook Series, third in a series written by Master Modeller Vasilis Triantafyllou that includes five different creations. “The Diorama Art – Between History and Myth” by Vasilis Triantafyllou is perhaps the most impressive and complete version in our Diorama Modelling series and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to release this edition, featuring five award-winning creations made almost entirely from scratch. Within the 100 pages of this book, the five creations between “History & Myth” are presented in a glamorous and illustrative way that we know will command your attention.

    I met Vasilis for the first time a few years ago and was lucky enough to admire his work, “The Black Pearl Treasure” at the IPMS show in Greece. His creations are truly breath taking and perhaps no recordings or photographs of them would not fully create the emotions that would fill the viewer when discovering them “in the flesh” for the first time, but the reader will have the chance to admire and learn the secrets of a Master of The Diorama Art.

    “The Holy Lake” is the first feature in 54mm scale and has been developed intermittently. Here are presented in detail innovative manufacturing and painting techniques and unique construction materials have been used. The result is impressive as well as the study and work that was done before any construction began. Similar techniques have been followed in the other dioramas and emphasize the diversity of each one.

    “The Caribbean Village” at 54mm is the second theme of the book, presenting several new elements and additions to the creative techniques that were used earlier in the first theme.

    The third theme is “The Castle” in 75mm scale with some stunning elements that carry you back to 17th century Europe.

    “The Black Pearl Treasure” is the fourth, and perhaps one of the most impressive subjects we’ve ever seen in the 75mm scale.

    “The Retreat 1812” is purely a historical Shadow Box diary in which many 54mm figures have been used. The despair and destruction experienced by Napoleon’s soldiers is expressed on their faces and the artist manages to convey strong emotions to the viewer.

    In closing, I must first of all thank the artist and writer of this amazing work, Vasilis Triantafyllou, and his son Dimitris Triantafyllou who edited the photographs… Thanks are also due to Christos Katselos for his excellent English translation and our tireless English proof editor Ken Jones. The promotion and completion of this project would not have been possible without Zacharias Andriopoulos’ help.

    I hope you enjoy our latest addition to the Diorama Modelling Series!
