Mark Foster's "Roman Seas" Fortified Port City
The port city took Mark Foster about 18 months to build, and includes purely scratch built models (Circus Maximus and a theatre) but also includes very clever uses of scratch built buildings made from Roman Seas building and fortification parts. This diorama also has many miniatures figures painted to represent statues, tree/shrub models plus a number of other interesting found objects that fill out the diorama. The only thing missing is smoke. Rome was notorious for the amount of smoke it produced since the everyone cooked and heated with fire, not mention temples burning incense, etc.

Interesting to note, with Mark Foster's Roman Seas City, are the fortification walls and towers: if lined up end-to-end, these would stretch over 50 feet.


NOTE: Roman Seas models are 6mm scale, but can be blown up or down; you are only limited by your printer's paper output. Marck Foster enlarged his display to 10mm using the standard Roman Seas PDF files.
