It's time for another Diorama of the Day video. I came across this amazing piece a couple of days ago and just instantly knew I had to make another video in the series.

This piece, a Dagobah diorama, was created by Michael Fichtenmayer of and I must say that I'm truly impressed. The scene is set in 48th scale and it took Michael, off and on, about 5 months to complete the diorama. It's great to see the mood of the scene is captured in fine details.

Great job, Michael. I hope to see more of your artwork in the future.

Amazing Diorama of Argonath from "Lord of the Rings".

"The Guardians" by Alexander Krasnov.
I recently came across this wonderful diorama by Alexander Krasnov from Ukraine. Normally I'm not the biggest fan of fantasy models but this piece it truly a stunning work of craftsmanship. The whole idea of using a book for the base of the diorama is very creative and unique and I will follow Alexander's work in the future to see what adventures will come out of his workbench.

The scale is about 1:100 scale and the diorama measures 40 centimetres by 28 centimetres. All scratch build for our enjoyment. Click here to visit Alexander's model page and see more of his astonishing work.

New episode of Warfare in Scale!

It's time for an all new episode of Warfare in Scale and this time it's a rather special show because it's in English. The footage was original shot for Takom Model and was made in English for a wider audience. The show will continue in Spanish in the future.

Jose Moral looks at the new 1/35 Mark IV Male WWI tank from Takom and makes a complete build from start to finish. The kit itself is an excellent kit but Jose really makes the model come to life. I have never seen a German version of the tank and I don't if that's fack or fiction but it really doesn't matter because the it's always great to see something new and the fisnished tank is a beautiful model.

The King Child - Diorama of the Day

I have previously shown another piece by Nicolas Cabaret of JBA Diorama. A small vignette called Baba Yaga. Nicolas is creating some of the most spectacular and inspiring work I have ever seen and I have spend the last couple of nights looking at all the wonderful pictures on his website.

This piece is called The King Child and features a wrecked ship crushed by the ice. In the centre of the diorama Nicolas has sculpted a nice scene of a child jumping into the arms of a man. I guess he has a long story to go along with the diorama and if you are the curious type you should really explore his site. There's a lot of treasures to find.

Great tutorial for figure painting

I have been thinking of getting more into painting large scale figures over the last couple of months. It looks very appealing to me. A very creative process with a lot more freedom than the usual military kits. Aircraft looks great and they are fun to build but you have something specific, you are working towards and most of the time it's a picture or a drawing of an actual aircraft. Hence you are working to make a rendition of the real aircraft. Most of the figures are a product of imagination and they don't exist in real life so you have no reference for your painting.

Because of this I have been looking at a lot of tutorials on figure painting. Rusty Nails of Grex Airbrushes made this excellent tutorial you can use as a step by step guide to how you achieve Translucent skin effects. Great video. Enjoy fellows.

Warfare in Scale Episode 17

It's time for another episode of Warfare in Scale. This time Carlos gets his hands on the new 4x4 MRAP from Kínetic Models and I have to say, it's a great looking kit. I would really like to see some builds of this model in domestic police schemes. That would be rather cool to see. Carlos Costa does the kit justice and have one beautiful looking model in the end. Anyway, another great show from Valencia, Spain. Enjoy fellows.

All new episode of Warfare in Scale

Yes guys! Episode 16 of Warfare in Scale is out. This time it's another AFV build and a very interesting subject. The Diamond T969 from Mirror Models LTD is a really cool looking kit. The level of details on the model is just amazing and Jose Moral really does a great job of building, painting and weathering it.

I get a lot of questions about the content of the WiS videos, concerning techniques and such but unfortunately I'm not able to answer those questions. The same goes for the Diorama of the Day video and I'm not sure  how to deal with that. I hate to leave people hanging and I'm trying to find a format that makes it possible but I haven't found it yet. I'm thinking of making some interview videos with the  different builders but that's a future project.

Anyway, enjoy the show and if you have never seen the kits from Mirror Models you should head on over to their website and have a peek. Just follow this link...

The Death of 6th Army in Stalingrad

Well guys. I did it again. Another video of the amazing work done by Paul Keefe. I really have a soft spot for Paul's work because of his ability to tell a story in his dioramas. I just love it and it really makes my job of creating a video very easy. I just have to find some related footage and the video just creates it self. Thanks Paul, for your inspirantial work. I hope everyone enjoy's it as much as I do.

This diorama is called "Death of an Army" and is in 1/48 scale. It was a commision to a private collector and deals with the collapse of the 6th German Army at Stalingrad. I am completely blown away by the level of detail in this piece. The way the snow has been modelled to look like the wind has caught it and blown it across the tank just looks so good.

If you want to see more pictures of the fantastic diorama and check some of Paul's other works out, head on over to his blog through this link. I will promise you he has more goodies in the bag...

An old abandoned Hind

A few days ago I came across this fantastic diorama. An old abandoned Hind, left behind to rust, in an public parking lot, after the fall of the Soviet Union. I was so impressed by the diorama I instantly got inspired and just had to make a video about it. Another DotD video...

The piece is in 1/35th scale and is called "Rust and Bones". The stunning artwork was created by Rick Lawler, the man behind the now famous "Twisted Fate" diorama. This is another fantastic example of how much weathering can add to a model. I much rather see these rusted and forgotten machines than well functioning killing machines. They are much more interesting to the eyes and do not promote war, in the same manner.

Rick has a lot of impressive pieces on his website and it's well worth a visit and if you want to see/read more about this diorama or check out his other work, you can follow this link to his propaganda site.
