This Gallery is for the display finished model builds only. Work In Progress and Reference pictures should be posted in the appropriate forums.

Definitions
Vignette a small, scenic base as a setting for, or to complimemt a single model (aircraft, vehicle, figure, ship etc)
Diorama a scenic base for the setting or display of several models, whether they are mixtures of aircraft and vehicles or figures, two or more aircraft, vehicles, ships, figures etc. on a scenic base.
Airfix diorama where the plastic content of the diorama (as supplied by Airfix) is 51% or greater of the total.
Non-Airfix diorama where the plastic content of the diorama (as supplied by other manufacturers) is 51% or greater of the total.

Naming Convention for dioramas
If your diorama has been made from a kit, please follow the usual ATF manner of titling by Manufacturer - Scale - Description - Product code.
If a thread exists for your particular model, then add your pictures to that thread. If a thread does not already exist for that model, then create one.
However, many dioramas are a mixture of kits. For these please choose an appropriate title for your diorama and state the scale. The thread will then be unique.

Members' Portolios
Members can post a picture of each of their completed and work in progress builds in their very own porfolios.  See the Members' Portfolios Forum for more details viewforum.php?f=87.

Quality of Images
Please ensure that the pictures you put in the Picture Gallery are of good enough quality.  Some pictures being posted are too dark, out of focus, way too large, way too small etc. Not only are they bad for viewing but they will not be doing justice to your models. Before uploading the pictures put them through an image editor such as Photoshop, PaintShop Pro, Irfanview etc.  Remember to crop the pictures too so we don't have a huge picture showing a nice wall with a tiny model in one corner!

Number of Images
Unlike the Members Portfolios where you can only post one picture of each completed model, there is currently no limit to the number of photos you can post in the Picture Gallery.  Don't go mad though! Remember that too many pictures slows down the browsing and some poor souls are still using modem-connections!  If you do have lots of very large pictures, then consider using  thumbnails or text links instead.

If in any doubt about any of these points then don't post but ask any of the Moderating Team or myself for advice.

1/28 Roman Baths
