Whether you are a fan of Wargaming or urban and railway reenactments, choose the diorama at Scientific MHD that will complete your collection.
What is a diorama ?
Dioramas have existed since the 19th century and are 3D models representing or replicating scenes. There are several types of dioramas, however, initially they were used as an artistic technique to create large-scale paintings that were animated with light effects. Technically, Christmas nativity scenes are a form of diorama, and they can also be used as educational reconstructions that we find in natural history museums.
Today, the diorama is an integral part of the model making world and is used to create scale models and set scenes. Dioramas can include entire landscapes and images of a historical event, making them just like a miniature world.
The aim of the diorama is to create a miniature set using figurines, animals, and vegetation to recreate an actual scene of your choice. This miniature world will enable you to bring your model to life, placing it in a military or historical context. So start building your mini world and enjoy making it as realistic as possible!

Discover some other important elements needed to complete your scene, including wooden crates, barrels, and fences, painted craters, stone cottages and bricks in various colours.

You can define the general atmosphere of the scene by first choosing the frame which you can refine according to your research.
