Another direction of activity of the studio is a creating of the collection dioramas. Usually it is a composition of 2-4 figures with the stand that looks like real environment (Diorama A201). The natural-looking environments are created with the help of combinations of synthetic and natural materials and mainly with our craftsmen creative approach.
We can use soldering in assembling of some parts of the figures to improve the durability. The soldering is more toilful process and we need note that the soldering can be used only at those places where it is allowably by the painting technology.
We do believe that there is no place for trifles in miniatures creation. So we pay maximum attention to each technology operation.
You can find our latest art works - figures and dioramas - in the "Gallery" and "Dioramas" sections of the site respectively. There you can see yourself the quality of our artist painting in details. The material of the figures is a tin alloy. All painting is done by hand. We use shading in the right way to accentuate the minutest details.
