Stirling Bridge diorama...

As mentioned in the previous post, I thought I'd post the article by Charlie Wesencraft on building the Stirling Bridge diorama I saw at the Bannockburn visitors centre. This came from the Spring 1988 edition of "Practical Wargamer" ..

Interesting that Stuart (Asquith - the editor) should describe Charlie as a noted modeller. I've always thought of him as more of a wargamer than a modeller, assuming that is that I have the right Charlie Wesencraft in mind!

Anyway - here you go, and enjoy (please click on the pictures to enlarge)..


  1. I think Wesencraft made quite a few dioramas for various museums (he worked for the museum service - so i guess was in prime position to grab the work) so referring to him as a 'modeller' is legitimate i suppose. Probably best to assume it wasn't intended as a Featherstone style barb.... 8-)

  2. DC - no I never assumed it was - Stuart is far too "un-barb'like".. :o)

    My comment was more along the lines of that I'd not heard of Charlie in a modelling perspective.. only as a wargamer...
