      I was wondering if Administration would be open to the idea having a diorama section devoted to dioramas of all types,cars,boats,aircraft etc...This could also include dioramas created through photography using backdrops and creative lighting.
      Dioramas are becoming more and more popular among modelers these days, as a means of properly showing off there work, in a creative and exciting way.In a few short years ,I have seen dioramas grow from a nice base to put your work on ,to an art form of its own.
      I consider Scale Motorcars as a high quality site therefore the "Dioramas as Art" title would encourage a higher quality of work I should think.
      Just a suggestion! Cheers! John.

    But that's just me.

    Hi miked! I think of a vignette as a diorama on a small scale,simpler,not too elaborate in nature,something like a bust as opposed to a whole figure.In photography when they kind of shade off the edges of the photograph to focus on a smaller area.
    For Large Pictures see:

    My 1:16th dioramas are now on permanent display at the Canada Aviaion and Space Museum,in Ottawa,Canada.The apprailals for the museum were done by Shep Paine who valued them at between $15,000 and $25,000 (US) each.
