    So many impressive stuff, i really cannot tell which is the best but there was a particular dio with a uboat next to half a sinking ship which was really impressive, i wish there were more close up pics, the detail and the debris in the water and the sea itself were incredible.

    There really are some amazing ideas here. On a number of them, you can get either more pictures or the build article by clicking on a link either right above or sometimes below the photo, usually they just have one word that is clickable.

    One that I thought was really cool was the one painted up in black and white, I actually had to look at that one for a minute to realize that the photo was taken in black and white, that you could see the wood frame in color. looks simple to do, but I'd bet that would be tough to do getting all of those grayscale colors just right. Very effective! I think that one was on the third page.

    Great link! Really nice build, I haven't seen that one before. I had never thought of trying to do a model and diorama in black and white before, interesting idea. I need to get color down first though! Very Happy

    It's a really great diorama and it really does make you stop and think. There is a link by the photo that goes to a detailed build thread, I'm working my way through that build.

    Agreed IMHO he is one of the best dioramist around, he is simple and straight to the point, he is very good to tell a story with minimal subjects, and his way to tackle the sea is realistic, he is French J.Andrea and this is another great piece from him http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=2678

    I know what you mean. This kind of got me itching to try some small simple dioramas and add some more detail as I go. I have long wanted to do a N scale train layout (1/160 scale), I would have enough room for a small 2 1/2 X 5 or 6 foot layout, I am also wanted to build a model of a railroad bridge from my home town built in 1874 that's part wooden trestle in part metal, even in N scale, the bridge would be around 42 inches long. Need lots of practice for those, not to mention the diorama I want to do of the USRC Bear, locked in an ice flow with some of the crew on the ice along with the dog sled team.
