Publisher Comments:

The secrets of top-class terrain modelling are revealed and demonstrated by Richard Windrow, one of the world's leading diorama modellers, in this new addition to the successful Masterclass series. Everything from medieval castles to the destruction wrought upon modern cities by war is covered in this wide-ranging and accessible approach. Explore the difficulties of creating an effective desert environment from the sandstone of Arizona to the wastelands of North Africa. Discover the delicate handiwork needed to create the barbed wire death traps of No-Man's Land and the frozen wilderness of Russia in winter.

This variety of seasons, environments and historical periods are detailed in over 200 full color step-by-step photographs so that a range of modeller's "how to" questions are easily answered. Accompanying the photographs is an invaluable guide to the materials and techniques needed to create top quality terrain, providing the essential reference volume for the military and non-military modeller alike.

The author lives in Kent, UK.
