This book is about how Claude Joachim built the “Diorama Clervaux” and is not a typical “How to” modelling guide. The reader will be able to share his trains of thought, concerns, successes and failures, by plan or by luck. In more or less chronological order he guides the reader through all the stages of the making of this historic diorama. Over the course of 144 pages and illustrated with over 600 pictures the reader will discover every aspect of diorama making. Some of the more extraordinary subjects are covered in more depth and detail. Among many other helpful tutorials he teaches how to build scale houses, a paved street, lifelike replicas of trees and other vegetation and even how to create a complete river.
Capturing Clervaux – The Final hour offers unique insights in the creation of one of the biggest 1/35 scale dioramas in the world!
