Woodland Scenics is a pioneer of realistic model scenery. I was buying their soft metal tree trunks and ground-foam for my railroad and dioramas over thirty years ago. Woodland Scenics expanded their product lines to include cast metal buildings and vehicles, man-made scenery (a.k.a., junk piles), hundreds of plastic figures, glues, water simulating resins, plastic vehicles, plastic trees, static grass and natural fiber grass, rock molds, talus, earth color paints, a foam layout system, and now this series of crafty and hobby sets.
Several sets make up this series. Woodland Scenics produces light plastic bases and shadow boxes to use with the sets.
Several diorama sets are offered:
Each set comes with the supplies necessary to make the particular scene. For instance, the Basic set includes:
This set offers basic supplies that you can find elsewhere. However, it does have basic scratchbuilding materials with which you can use for any number of model scenes. The brochure has useful how-tos for any modeling job.
This can be a useful kit for general model making. The other specific Scene-A-Rama diorama sets will make good dioramas for any model genre. This kits book is useful.
