Exhibit repair & upgrade


Maintenance and repair are a part of an exhibit's life. Handling and storage take their toll, as do the effects of dust and spiders as well as heat and humidity. Glue dries out and lets go and colors fade. Sometimes an existing diorama is identified as being essentially worthwhile but doesn't tell the story well or accurately. Below are two such examples.

Each of the project galleries will be introduced by a brief description of the project, including the identification of the client (who and where), an explanation of the diorama's existing problems as identified by the client, the challenges represented, and our solution. The scale, including the size of the figures, is given for each project, as well as any other noteworthy information. Clicking on each picture will open a page with more information.
