If I remember, in 1994 Tamiya released a new set of 1/35 dinosaur models, which included apart from the “creature” itself some plastic stand with cast relief. The stands connected making up some kind of a diorama.
The dinosaurs looked like they were from “cartoons” or rather from “movies”, the stands were quite primitive, but brought it all together and looked quite good. The apotheosis of these sets was the Brachiosaurus Diorama Set, which was almost half-meter high. After I saw it I couldn’t resist collecting all the models of this series. Which I successfully did about 10 years ago. And as it usually happens, all these boxes, some of them assembled partially, found themselves on the shelves until some time.
Finally, the time came when I got down to realizing my dream. Right here I would like to note that “Bank Holiday” is not a paleontological diorama in the strict sense of the word or “real” dinosaur world diorama. This is more of an installation which shows beautiful animals in a nice “interior” and dream about harmonic life.
All greenery on the diorama is hand-made; almost all the way through we used natural materials (moss, bark, branches and roots of the plants), ordinary paper, tracing paper, wire, polyester resin for water. The only exception is the fern which is made from a photo etched kit produced by British 4D Modelling.
The production team includes Nick Tsarev and my colleges Vladimir Ulyanov and Sergey Skreblov
