    Here's the stand after painting.

    I added the final details to the Paris Helen figure - the chair leg, a foot rest and I extended Paris' foot.

    These are some of the figures and artefacts which I had modelled to place within the diorama. I've decided to remodel these figures and to add more as well.

    I removed the stage from the shadow box. I intend to spruce up the wall paintings. The stage was made from Cardboard. The rooms were reinforced by cross beams which jut out from the side walls. I've...

    Here is the scan of Kalmar castle. I can't open the pages as this is very tightly bound. This should give you an idea of what the model could look like in a larger scale.
