During my recent travels through the virtual world, I have arrived at the diorama site, which is truly unique – JBA Dioramas. I have seen one of the author’s pieces long time ago on the armorama site and it immediately attracted my attention (it was the diorama Sokol depicted above).
The theme of this site is not really armour, though there is a military side to most of the work that can be seen here. What really make this site stand out from all the others is the uniqueness of the ideas behind the dioramas. Almost all of them are as if from a different world, as a window through time and space, reflecting unusual and surprising stories. Sometimes it is difficult to guess what exactly is the story about as it often feels almost esoteric… It is difficult to express this visual experience in worlds, you just have to see it….
In addition to this, most of the work by author is scratchbuilt, there are some hints of few model kits used here and there, but majority of the pieces are truly one-of-a-kind. If you are wondering how the dioramas were done, author also offers few quite extensive articles and build logs.
So if you are looking for an inspiration or just want to see something you haven’t seen before, go and have a look:
