Borodino 1812 Temporary Diorama Provisorische Diorama von Borodins 1812
Dry run set up of the temporary diorama in our dining room in Springfield, Virginia, in preparation for the September 2012 NCMSS Annual Show. The "ground" is a dyed bedsheet draped over boxes and styrofoam to create hills.
Set up at the 12 September 2012 NCMSS Annual Show - almost 200 years to the day after the Battle of Borodino - nice coincidence! Several thousand 30mm flats, primarily Russians but also their opposing troops - France's Bavarian and Saxon forces. Rick doesn't have any French figures.
This won the "Best Napoleonic Display Special Award" as well as a bronze medal.
