Joseph's Dioramas

Joseph has been a long time contributor to this website. And he has done some really remarkable work. Here are the dioramas that he has submitted. His scenes are always large and ambitious. And I really like that!

He shows a wonderful range of work, each diorama always taking a unique look at the subject.

He has also written a book that is a guide to Toy Castles from around the world. You can check that out at the bottom of the page.
