It was July 2017 when I produced my first World War 1 diorama and it was Memory Monday No:13 a few weeks ago when I reposted it.
It took me until October 2017 to begin work on this my second diorama. This post was the first of two for this model. At the time I did not realise this genre would grow into the project it became. Be warned though, there is a lot more from this period to follow!
The project came about as my modelling club in Plymouth wanted to put on a display to commemorate the end of the Great War for its 2018 show. Somewhere I got it into my head that it would be good to do a time line series.
On The Work Bench
Well at long last the various models I had ordered have all arrived and I have been able to commence work on the first of what will be a few 28mm WW1 dioramas. If all goes to plan then I should have half a dozen or so models complete over the coming weeks. However, we all know that nothing goes to plan so in reality it will probably take longer and involve obligatory swearing and cursing.
I decided to start with some of the figures I bought from Empress Models, their Muttonchop WW1 range. The detail in these 28mm figures is simply outstanding. Painting the figures is underway with some finished and others almost there. Base work has also started and all things being well then by the end of next week I will be able to post images of the end result.
