greetings from Denmark
Posted by AquaDan on Thursday, March 07, 2019 6:25 AM

My name is Dan, I am 46 years old, living south of Denmark.

My interest in dioramas started about 20 years ago. It all started with a starter kit H0 train, and the landscapes that were around. The interest in H0 train disappeared, I was still fascinated by the beautiful landscapes, but like all model builders, I first found my niche, 10 years ago, and it's ships in and under water.  My big passion is U-96 and dioramas around U-96 in different environments. I work mainly with 1: 350 The purpose of this page is to exchange ideas and techniques with others. Yours sincerely Dan https://www.instagram.com/p/Bur3xNIlz2b/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet

Hello again, Dan. I watched your UTube video, very nicely done. I have another question for you. What did you use to build up the waves that run along the sides of the sub? Did you use the AK Interactive foam? Or something else?

Hey Dan, I found your part 1 video. It is excellent. Using a torch to make waves is brilliant. Very simple and very fast. Do you have the other video parts loaded? I didn't see them.

Hey Dan, I have watched it. Very good sir. You put a lot of work into these videos. One of these days I will try the torch method. 

Thanks again for sharing your work flow!

Hi Dan, thanks for asking. Unfortunately, I have other projects I am working on and I have not had the chance to experiment with this.

Sure can. With regard to a seascape and what you are probably most interested in--here is a fun one that I did. I would like to do another submarine DIO, or possibly a masted ship DIO. That may be a few years off though.  Too many projects, so little time. I bounce around from genre to genre. I am currently working on a Bell X-1 rocket plane, a modified Lamborghini, and I just finished a Redstone rocket.

Nice work waw just to clear abut dioramas my preferred is the ocean but I like all types of dioramas sometimes I try new setups you know the desert or jungle but it's like the ocean is a safe place you know the feeling is like I don't *** up ocean dioramas and that's why I'm here to see new things and get new ideas and see how other people work and there teckniks to make the results they are yousing

Hi Dan, thank you. The technique that I use is based off of the link below. I used different materials but it is the same process, sort of. I did not use plaster nor did I use the paper. If you want to know more of how I did mine, let me know. Otherwise, the video gives a great basis to it.
