    DescriptionEven after the paint dries, there is still one important decision left to the modeller. How to display the finished work? In this new guide, expert modeller Richard Windrow covers all the common and many less common display techniques including dioramas, simple display cases, mirror stands, domes for individual figures, deep 'picture frame' boxes, and even light boxes. In a book crammed with pictures of beautiful models on display, from World War II tanks to modern-day rally cars, it instructs both novice and expert modellers alike on how to take a simple model and display it as a work of art.

Queen Royal Regiment from 1957 to 1959, before becoming an amateur rally driver.

The author lives in East Sussex, England.
    Review quote
    "There is no doubt about the quality of the work depicted in this book. The photography is outstanding, and the models, vignettes, and dioramas are world-class. The subject matter varies dramatically, from a quiet 19th Century clockmaker to medieval times to World War II to the modern age. This book would be an excellent reference for the casual model builder that just wants to expand their capabilities in displays, or to the more advanced builder that wants to move into dioramas. I can highly recommend this book for scale modelers, of all skill levels, in any and all genres. The book truly has something for everyone." - Keith Pruitt, "IPMS "(February 2010) "Author Richard Windrow has a look at all the many ways that a model can be shown. This includes an introduction to the subject with various thoughts on how to display a model, a few interesting diorama settings, then a more in depth look at bases, light boxes, frame displays, false perspectives, and cutaways.
