A grand master modeler renowned for his exquisite skills as a painter and sculptor, with a catalog of work ranging from single figures to small dioramas or vignettes to flats, Greg DiFranco is a driving force behind the Long Island Model Soldier Society. He is a regular at miniature shows throughout the U.S. and around the world, and he is an impressive singer who can pull off a mean Frank Sinatra. To date, he has set three of his flats in what he calls natural light boxes.
