Reviews - What do customers think about Terrain Modeling?
Great Video about the subject Aug 15, 2008
I have both the author's books and this DVD had helped me placed the facts together. It is a must have item for any serious hobbyist. The author has given some good tips and tricks in building diorama. In fact, some of the item he recommended in his diorama can be found in your own backyard.
Good reference for modelling terrain Oct 22, 2007
I own a copy. Let's temper the rating of this book realistically. The photos shown in this book are good, not superlative. There are many unusual products and techniques used for creating terrain modelling nowadays which are not featured in this book. This book is really a nice primer for creating terrrain on a scale larger than HO/OO.
Great book Oct 14, 2007
Really great book.
Author explains how to make every imaginable kind of terrain and foliage, with many variations. Water, ice, man made structures, rocks, fields, meadows, trees - just about anything. Trees are really spectacular.
Each topic is explained step-by-step, and is illustrated by great photographs. Many of the examples shown are bases for vignettes / dioramas, but look so good that could be models on their own.
If you're interested in making vignettes / dioramas - this book will show you how to make stunning terrain for them.
