National Army Museum Exhibition



Our week at the National Army Museum has now come to an end and I'm hugely grateful to the team at Waterloo Uncovered and in the Museum for all their kindness and hard work.

The exhibition went as well if not better than I hoped.  We had two packed out evening lectures, a lunchtime webinar and many ad hoc talks during the course of the four days.

The exhibition has catalysed interest from several new painters and modellers as well as leading to new possibilities for the eventual home of the diorama.  I'd particularly like to thank the army of painters who have not only helped out with the production of figures, but assisted with the set-up, running and pack-up of the exhibition.

Here are a few pictures of the week:

  2. It was great to see the model in the flesh so to speak after following your blog for some time. The scale and detail are astonishing and merit repeat viewings. I will be interested to see how the final display plans develop so that the viewer will be able to fully appreciate all aspects. An unexpected bonus was chatting to Ben, one of the Waterloo Uncovered veterans, an inspirational story to check out on their site.

  5. Thanks everyone, it was a lot of work, but well worth it. I'm very grateful for all the support, advice and encouragement received over the years. Phase 2 will begin when I've recharged batteries - the French cavalry charges onto the squares!

  10. My son and I had a fantastic day at the museum - it was a pleasure to finally meet you (And your wife) and see parts of your model. My resolve not to get involved is weakening though, so maybe we should chat about what help you need for phase 2.
