This is Sheperd Paine’s revised classic on building dioramas. Through the free ‘how-to’ pamphlets that was included in many Monogram kits in the 1980’s, Mr Paine influenced a whole generation of modelers. Showing us what we all aspire to as modelers. There are detailed instructions on diorama design, painting figures, groundwork, and shadow boxes. We have to note that even though revised edition is more than a decade old now, and many of the newer techniques and tools are not covered here. However, as inspiration and as instruction on the composition and laying out of an diorama, it remains unsurpassed. So don’t for a second think that this books is outdated, his shadow boxes are still a marvel to behold.
