Submit Your Work
Modelers: Submit your work! We built this site as a resource for box-diorama makers and enthusiasts worldwide, and we’d love to feature your contributions.
To submit your work, please send JPEGs to us (72 dpi are fine), along with a three- or four-sentence bio telling us who you are and where you live; the proper title, year of completion, and scale of each piece, and any other info you’d like to share. We also are looking for step-by-step articles or pieces on specific aspects of the hobby, useful links, images of other artists’ work (as long as you have permission to share them), examinations of the history of box dioramas, and anything else about boxes you find of interest (because we no doubt will, too).
NEW EMAIL EXCHANGES, JANUARY 2015
The following is an email exchange with a fan of the site who was looking for advice on doing on outdoor scene:
MMSI club member and Chicago modeler Jim Lyne is working on his first box diorama, and not surprisingly, he had a million questions. Shep Paine, Joe Berton, and I recently visited him in his modeling space, and I followed up by sending an email listing sources for many of the materials we discussed. Since this may well be of interest to other modelers, too, it’s worth posting here. (And much of this information also can be found on our links page.)
Finally for this update, modeler John Reid wrote in with the following question.

Here is a question that arrived directly to your Web hosts via email, which we’ve decided to reproduce her because it may be of help to other modelers. Remember, we welcome your questions!
