It's been a while since I started building the Weltyk Marine diorama (based on the FOS Scale kit) in Oct 2015. At that time videos were posted on YouTube showing all my build steps I went through to get the diorama completed. It was a long and tedious process where tried to post a video each day showing all my good and bad day's progress. Some of it was painful and some was very enlightening and when I finished in March 2016 it was time to get on with other builds.

Sometime after I completed the diorama had to delete all the videos from YouTube because the channel was getting too big and too confusing. So over the past few months I have managed to re-upload all the videos to a dedicated channel where they can live standalone and not confused by other non-related videos.

The YouTube Channel can be accessed at:


I took the opportunity to create a new set of Playlists that can help the viewer focus on a topic of a section of the diorama build process. There are some 268 videos and the playlists help navigating through the channel much easier. Some of the playlists are,

Scratchbuilding a Gantry Crane,

Buoys and Things for the dock,

... are just some of the 40+ playlists you can enjoy.


* These videos may not be the right choice for some viewers. They are not *
* tutorials, formal lessons or intended to be the "right" way; just a way *

They can be boring at times, there are out of frame shots, bad focus and can be VERY addicting to watch. Pace yourself and you will find some amazing ideas or what not to do in your own dioramas. I'm no expert, just a good problem solver.

Think back to the days when you would follow your dad to the garage and watch him try to fix something. When he hit his thumb or his head, he cursed under his breath and when it was completed he would shout with joy and take you to the ice cream shop. You were more intrigued watching him do stuff then doing your homework. What happened in the garage stayed in the garage, except your fond memories of "helping" your dad. This is how these videos were made - learning by watching and then going out and trying it for yourself.

Get watching, the journey is more interesting than you can believe.
