Darren Baker takes a look at Anthony Reeves first foray into the written word in the form of a book looking at building a series of dioramas and settings and published by The Crowood Press.

Scenery is scenery regardless of whether one creates it for a diorama of an AFV, a 1/35 BR52, or a huge electric train layout. This book looks like an excellent tome of inspiration and knowledge for military modelers as well as railroaders.

Good presentation, Darren.

Correct! To try and emulate the real world has nothing to do with scale or topic!

And the book is certainly worth having, as every bit of info proves valuable one other day!!

Thank you gents. It was my intention to do my best to make sure that those interested in AFV dioramas were not possibly but off by the mention of railways, and thus missing out on a very good book when it comes to dioramas.
