Re: The Battle of Quatre Bras 16th June 1815

Chris,

This project of yours is so impressive! I was going to do Quatre Bras as my next project since the Netherlands forces were so pivotal to holding up the French advance and giving Wellington some more time, but no more..... your approach is so comprehensive. Well done.

Re: CHARGE OF THE UNION BRIGADE AT WATERLOO

Of particular interest to me is the distressed limber and horses. I have attempted similar with one of my dioramas as attached. A bit difficult to view with brown horses on brown mud background, it does highlight my second attempt to model the rye crop that dominated the whole Waterloo battlefield. ...

Re: CHARGE OF THE UNION BRIGADE AT WATERLOO

Good modelling of course. Nevertheless, I believe the uniform is wrong, although replicated in various books etc. When Napoleon abdicated in 1814, the new King expunged as much Napoleonic details as possible from the army: the eagles of course; buttons, shako plates etc were all crudely altered or r...

Re: Rorke`s Drift 1879

Why Rorke's Drift appears to have such a hold on the modelling community as well as the general population has puzzled me for a long time. The British (definitely not Welsh as in the film) were vastly out-numbered but there are countless other similar situations in history: and they had far better f...

Re: Modelling The 1646 Siege of Bridgnorth Castle

The model/diorama is now essentially complete; only the model figures to finish off so all should be done by early April.

Re: Modelling The 1646 Siege of Bridgnorth Castle

Ahh, that weathering issue That current day photograph illustrates the exposed site having suffered 3 centuries of industrial pollution, although if you get close the individual colours become apparent. I attach a photo of a more protected piece of walling nearby with similar stone origins, showing ...

Re: Modelling The 1646 Siege of Bridgnorth Castle

Crucks frame house Bridgnorth castle P1010431 (2).jpg The diorama needed another old house in the grounds. This time I chose to construct a Crucks timber frame house. This type of construction is very English says Wikipedia and its main structural strength comes having each gable end having a sligh...
