2. Dioramica

Posted by Wolfgang Meyer on 18 Sep 2018, 10:41

The DIORAMICA is getting closer and closer. It's also a big gathering of friends and members of Benno's Forum.

Once again, apart from a great number of vendors of model figures and diorama accessories many fellow hobbyists will attend and present their works of art. Furthermore, many figure modellers from Germany and abroad specialising in our scale will be guests of our show and and are willing to share their tricks of the trade.

Also, our association 'History in Miniatures' will present their newest additions to the museum exhibition. We would not be able to build our large dioramas without the support of some of our most enthusiastic fellow modellers. Among our new pieces, pride of place will go the new diorama 'Teutonic Order 1329'. We are looking forward to welcome Alex Gusev from Moscow. Alex is the modeller of the Valdemar figures used in this diorama portraying an episode of the late middle ages. Moreover, we will for the first time present 'Danube 1809'. This diorama makes exclusive use of Francesco Messori's figures. Francesco is an avid modeler of Napoleonic figures and has his own figure line; he will also be our guest during the presentation. Apart from the permanent exhibits in the museum and the many pieces brought by our fellow hobbyists there will be two very large temporary dioramas of Waterloo and the Battle of Ulundi during the Zulu War of 1879. All in all, there will be hundreds of dioramas never before seen in public.

So lots and lots to be seen. The following is a list of vendors, modellers and exhibitors who to this date announced to attend. Of course, this list will be changing in the months to come. We will do our best to keep it up-to-date. As appetisers, we are adding some pictures of the dioramas that will be shown.

I'm planning to visit this years Dioramica for one day or even two.
Could you please communicate the actual opening hours (per day) with us, could't find them in the original announcement. Sorry if I've overlooked them somewhere.

Another question is if forum members from Belgium, the southern Netherlands or western North Rhine-Westphalia are going there by car?
Anyone interested in teaming up for a carpool travel?
Feel free to contact me here or per PM.

Really looking forward to this highly promising event! :thumbup:
