Dioramas and Models

by Bjørn Jacobsen



I have been building scale models for many years now, mostly WWII planes, but also a few dioramas.

After years of modelling, I find it more and more rewarding and challenging to make dioramas, because it requires 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 me the opportunity to let the models tell their story – and a story, they always have.


Besides, it makes the building much more fun


I hope some of my models or dioramas might inspire some of you to try out this exciting hobby.
