Our Very Special Miniature WW1 Scene.....At Last Revealed!

At long last I'm delighted to be able to reveal the latest commissioned project jointly undertaken with my workshop colleague and great old mate - Robin Britton, for the 
DOLLS HOUSE & MINIATURE SCENE MAGAZINE 

A First World War Officer's Derelict Dugout, Trench & Poppy Field

What a project this has been.....many hours have been spent on research for this and many more hours on actually creating it! But we are very pleased and proud of the result, on what is an emotive subject. We have endeavoured to respectively focus on the poignancy and remembrance of war.
This will be shown as a "how to make" project in the magazine, starting with the August 2014 issue and we understand it will probably run over into the September issue too....as it is a massive project! (The August issue comes out on June 26th).
As with all our WORKSHOP PROJECTS, we have used ordinary everyday materials as well as natural materials from our gardens in the creation of this....in fact you will be amazed and maybe a little surprised at some of the materials used!

So now here it is.....as a video, complete with old soldier!

 This video  is best viewed with speakers on and full screen.

In order to read the story behind this little scene and full instructions on how to make it, please see the August 2014 issue of the Dolls House & Miniature Scene Magazine.

We are very proud to say that this finished project will be on display in the THAME MUSEUM (Oxfordshire) as part of their WW1 Centenary Exhibition which runs from May 3rd to August 20th.

Thank you Steinworks and Serenata for your comments. Glad you like it. The making is the easy bit...it was the planning of creating it into a "how to make" project that was the hardest bit! Celia

It is a brilliant project. The detail is amazing. I felt a bit emotional at the end of the video thinking of an old soldier paying respect to his friends that did not make it home.

This is probably the best scene for authenticity and miniature accuracy I have seen. A big well done to the creators.
