TIM’s Memory Monday (No: 11)

This model features the Tree, Flat Bed River and New England Bridge that all featured in previous posts.  All finally coming together in this completed diorama.  I still have this one out on display as it is one of my favourites.  I hope those of you seeing it for the first time like it too.



Off The Work Bench – American Civil War 28mm Diorama

Much of which I could say about this diorama has already been covered in earlier posts under the header “On The Work Bench” so I wont bore anyone by making further reference to making the tree, the covered bridge and the small section of river.  That said more than happy to answer any questions on the subject.

The diorama itself is meant to depict confederate infantry men making way for the limber coming through and hopefully that comes across.  The figures are once again all from Dixon Miniatures and apart from adding harnessing to the horses and limber are as purchased.

Assembly on this scale and with quite a few pieces proved a little tricky but I got there in the end! Various scenic details were added, most notably the grass which was applied using a static grass applicator.

  1. What a great diorama. It both reminded me, as you mentioned, of my native New England and also of the bridge and scene (minus certain more … shall we say modern additions) in the little California town where I currently live, well, I live in the hills near said town.

    A “static grass applicator?” I have to admit that knowing a little of your sense of humor from reading your blog for a little while now, I had to go and Google it and I’ll be darned if it isn’t a real thing!

  2. I bet you can’t guess what YouTube videos I have been watching all afternoon, yes the ACW, I am fascinated with it enough to have bought a few union men on a sprue, I have started to paint them just today as the limber is done and will hopefully be based this week. It goes without saying, I just love your dioramas, you put so much time and effort and detail into them, they are little works of art in themselves, great job..
