This is a room inside a diorama I built 2 years ago, its all scratch made from Balsa wood. Its at 1:35 scale, so its all contained in a 7×9 inch space. Its part of a larger Diorama I did showing a British Mk. V Tank and Trench along with the bunker.

I have been model building for the past 3 years or so and have really enjoyed the Diorama aspect of it.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Very impressive, it really makes you think of what the Soldiers endured back then. Both my Grandfathers served in that War. Dan

Only when I read the scale did I not know it was full size. Very impressive. Great work. The detail is really amazing.

7×9 ~ INCHES ???
that is a LOT of very precise detail !!

at first, I thought it was a photo of somebody’s messy garage LOL.
that is just absolutely stunning !!
keep up the good work.

This was a project that took 5-6 months so I had plenty of time to figure stuff out. Here are some pictures early on adding the lighting, and some of the balsa furniture.
