This book is made for all who would like to make a military diorama and for all those who already are making military dioramas. Many have been building scale models and now want to put them in a diorama context. This book is full of ideas and describes the way the author has made many of his world-renowned dioramas. This book is not about building the perfect model or diorama. It is about creating a snapshot of history, to freeze a moment in time and, about all, to tell a story. The beauty of building a diorama is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. It is entirely up to your creativity and imagination. The options are endless and fascinating! This book describes more than twenty-five different dioramas and gives you a fantastic insight of how these were created. With more than 800 pictures and in-depth description, it gives you numerous tips and guidance which will help you building your own diorama. The Autor, Bjørn Jacobsen, built his first scale model in 1957, 15 years old. Since then he has made numerous models, mostly WWII planes, but also many extraordinary dioramas. After years of modelling, he found it more and more rewarding and challenging to make dioramas, because it required not only modelling skills but also a sense of realism and a lot of research and scratch building to get it as realistic as possible. It also gives him the opportunity to let the models tell their story – and a story, they always have. For years, he has posted his work to the many model groups around the world and he often has been asked to publish some of his amazing work. He has now taken those requests seriously and has written this book. His hope is that his models and dioramas might inspire some to try out this exciting hobby.
