1. "Dioramica" 2016

Posted by Wolfgang Meyer on 06 Aug 2015, 07:59

Saying large dioramas is saying 1/72nd scale. Figures in that scale have become extremely popular with modellers over the last couple of decades, and they are produced by a growing number of small series manufacturers. These figures now cover a huge variety of historic subjects as they were formerly offered by flat figures only.

Over the years, there have been created real works of art, ranging from the masterly vignette with just a few to superdioramas with tens of thousands of figures.

We, i.e. the members of the ‘History in Miniatures’ society, have been pondering for a long time how we could make our fellow hobbyists, who are dedicated to the building of historical dioramas just as we are, join us for an exposition to present their work.

This has been a big dream of ours which is now coming true.

For the first time ever, some of the best sculptors and painters of small scale figures, as well as some of the most ambitious diorama builders from all over Europe and nearly all the well-known vendors who provide for our hobby will meet at a single venue.

An exposition-plus-fair as we are planning requires painstaking preparation. First of all, we had to find a date that would be okay for all, and we think we succeeded.

The First Dioramica will take place on the weekend of November 19‒20, 2016. The venue will be our diorama museum ‘Geschichte in Miniaturen’ in Hann. Münden. In addition, we will be able to use the spacious premises of the hotel in which our museum is situated.

A large number of sculptors, figure painters, modellers, diorama builders and vendors from all over Europe share our enthusiasm and promised to join us. This will be a singular opportunity to get a life view of many of the dioramas which have been known from the internet or from diverse expositions and scale modelling fairs only.

The dioramas ‘Rome 170 A.D.’, ‘Cröbern 1813’, ‘Möckern 1813’, ‘Northern Italy 1813’ are centre pieces of our museum and ready for viewing. In addition, we are working frantically to finish our ongoing projects in time ‒ the large dioramas ‘Teutonic Order 1329’, ‘Rosenberg Fortress 1806’ and ‘Auenhain 1813’.

Furthermore, a great number of dioramas made by some of the most well-known modellers from all over Europe will be on exposition, covering all epochs from antiquity to World War One.

There will be a diorama competition and workshops on figure sculpting and painting, as well as on the making of model structures, terrain and water for dioramas. The hotel will provide catering and accomodation, and the town of Hann. Münden and its pleasant surroundings offer many attractions for the entire family.

:shock: Well - a year is quicker 'round the corner as we think but is it really necessary to rent the hotel rooms right now?

I'm planning to visit the show as well. It's probably not often that you see so many 1/72 dios in one place, especially the big ones.

Hi Christophe,
that you can assess themselves best. Would you come alone or with several friends?
According to google about 7.5 hours by car and by train takes about 6.5 hours.
Hann. Münden has a small railway station.

Best regards,
Wolfgang
