Saw a link to this over at Table Top Gaming News:

We normally don’t post tutorials but this description on how to produce a budget diffusion box that Keltheos posted on the AE-WWII forum is just too good not to share. Not only is it a handy tutorial but it uses premade pieces that allow even clumsy builders like me to create a very usable diffusion box for photographing miniatures.

Duck Blind Miniatures - The website has been gone for a long time so I've put up a FaceBook page to show what photos I have left or may add in the future.
Duck Blind Minis IG - I do post on IG too but fair warning there are other things (mostly the gym) on here besides minis.

Wow...so simple, yet so amazing. The difference is night and day...the pics on the tutorial really do look professional. Gonna have to give that whirl...gotta get some minis painted up first! Thanks for the link.

That's a great idea and I'll have to go to Michael's or Hobby Lobby this weekend to build my own.

My only criticism (and where I'll do it a bit differently) is the foamcore. The later images show some points where the movement of models has scratched the surface of the foamcore, leaving a "scribble" that detracts from the quality of the image.

Yeah. Link is dead. Forum's still there, but it's impossible to find. I did, however, find this: http://m.wikihow.com...graphy-Lightbox
