How to Make Trenches in a Diorama

Trenches are really popular with hobbyists who make military miniatures and battle scenes. To make a good trench or series of trenches you just have to plan ahead so you get it right.

Once you have designed your diorama on paper and know where the trenches will go you can then build the frame and incorporate the trenches right into it. Here is a video that shows you how to do it.

I also have some more trench warfare stuff including a complex series of trenches made for a world war diorama

 

Here is a fantastic video with some outstanding tips on making a WW2 Diorama, specifically how to make a trench diorama. But, this video is just filled with outstanding tips on how to make any kind of WW2 diorama. The video was made by 208stroker of youtube . Some of the tips he gives us include the importance of adding the little details to make the diorama much more interesting and he shows us a tiny army radio that he improvised out of the parts from an old modem.

He also gives us a fantastic diorama making tip where you use the carousel and plate from an old microwave as a base to put your diorama on. This makes it so much easier to work on your diorama. With that you can just rotate it and work on all sides of it from all angles.
