Ship Dioramas is about the art of displaying waterline ship models. Ship models that do not show the full hull and are not mounted on an artificial stand cry out for a realistic setting. This is the province of the diorama, which at its most effective is a depiction of a scene or an event in which the ship model takes center stage. This book devotes much of its space to what works and what does not, and illustrates with photographic examples why the best maritime dioramas have visual power and how to achieve that impact.
David Griffith builds models in many scales and materials, but has won many awards for his 1:350 and 1:700 scale resin warships. He publishes his own newsletter and Ship Models from Kits was his first book.
