On this website, I am presenting some of my dioramas and models. I explain the background for each diorama and I show how it was built.

.I hope some of my work might inspire some of you to try this exciting hobby.

I have written a book which is a compilation of the building and the stories of about thirty of my dioramas.

The book has 168 pages and more than 900 colour pictures.

.

The book is sold by Amazon and on this website. Price USD 35,50

 

The book is available in English and German
