2nd edition, updated cover with same content!
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.
