This is the province of the diorama, which at its most effective is a depiction of a scene or an event in which the ship model takes center stage. This book devotes much of its space to what works and what does not, and illustrates with photographic examples why the best maritime dioramas.

Book Description Seaforth Publishing, Barnsley, 2013. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Brand New. Dust Jacket Condition: Brand New. First Edition. [2013] Brand New First Edition. 144pp. Ilstd. This book is about the art of displaying waterline models. By their very nature, ship models that do not show the full hull and are not mounted on an artificial stand cry out for a realistic setting. At its most basic this can be just a representation of the sea itself, but to give the model a context - even to tell some sort of story - is far more challenging. This is the province of the diorama, which at its most effective is a depiction of a scene or an event in which the ship model takes centre stage. As with a painting, the composition is a vital element and this book devotes much of its space to what works and what does not, and illustrates with photographic examples why the best maritime dioramas have visual power and how to achieve that impact. Individual chapters explore themes like having small craft in attendance on the main subject, multiple-model scenarios, dockyards and naval bases, and the difficulties of replicating naval combat realistically. It also looks at both extremes of modelmaking ambition: the small single-ship exposition and the largest, most ambitions projects of the kind meant for museum display. The book concludes with some of the most advanced concepts - how to create drama and the illusion of movement, and how to manipulate perspective. Illustrated throughout with colour photos, the more abstract discussion is backed with practical 'how to' sections, so anyone who builds waterline ship model will benefit from reading this book. Blue cloth; gilt titles; jacket. Clean; bright; tight; square; unmarked. For full appreciation see pictures. Order with confidence - trusted seller with excellent customer feedback.
