• After 8 years of work, starting 2005, the publishing of the second book about my work marks the end of this exciting modeling adventure
  • Here I am explaining a bit the project, the making of one of the biggest dioramas ever build in 1/35 scale. The story has of course changed and I will change this page soon.
  • You will find a couple of pictures in the Gallery. After the publication of my books I hope for your understanding that I cannot publish to many pictures. You should consider them as teasers who hopefully will convince you to buy the books.
    Please note that I will continue to update my Blog with all my actual modeling work, even if the Diorama Clervaux is finished!
