Constantinople 1453

Building this diorama was my chilhood dream. It is reason for me to start model making. Every model and diorama I did in the past was a preparation for this.


When I felt I was experienced enough I started to read books about siege. I read about ten books of history, architecture, novel, biography etc and I watched documentaries, visited museums. I have
advantage to live in İstanbul. So I could see, touch and examine the walls. 


I prepared plans by autocad (Yes, I learnt to use it for this diorama too) and started to build. It took 3 years as I have a fulltime job. 




Building a diorama such this is a great satisfaction for me. I hope you will have same pleasure when you see it.
Artar Inciduzen..

  5. Outstanding modelling. I have been and seen the walls as well and have a few books about the siege myself. It has always been a dream of mine to actually play this period but I have never had the opportunity. Again outstanding work.
