Well done!


Yes, but what did you use for this very realistic water? - Perhaps it is explained somewhere, but then I've overlooked it, and the question Which material? is always crucial for water in dioramas.

On the images, the Church looks too big.
In the original, it is smaller


Now, I understand. I was a little biased :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I am from the north of Italy, at the Alps' feet. Tuscany for us has only hills; no mountains :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Anyway, again: amazing work!

Dear Napoleonpati,

This looks all wonderful, wonderful.

A difficult question: Hitlers panzer army (the wicked enemy, they stole my grandpa's car :drool: but could not find his motorcycle since he hid it in his kitchen :mrgreen: ) would be the last thing I would love to see rushing through such a beautiful rustic, idyllic village. Is there a particular idea behind this choice of yours?

Well anyway, I look forward to see it, in about 17 months so you have to hurry finishing it!

Oh yes, another small remark, I just ran an architecture workshop at our Figz show last weekend so construction methods are still stuffing my brain: I hope your small pedestrian bridge is not finished yet. A proper stone arch is missing. Also the arch is extremely wide. It will soon collapse on top of your Opel (?) truck. Apart from this, it looks all very convincing and credible to me. You you can be proud of your work :-D

The real bones of the structure: the buildings and bridges,the river split into three flows, works well for me. Really lucky Germans not a traffic cop in sight. BB

Hello Mr.Cryns
Is there a particular idea behind this choice of yours?
Yes, Italy is my favourite holiday destination. :-D

Well anyway, I look forward to see it, in about 17 months so you have to hurry finishing it!
In the 17 months I have done three dioramas of WWII. :-D

I hope your small pedestrian bridge is not finished yet. A proper stone arch is missing. Also the arch is extremely wide. It will soon collapse on top of your Opel (?) truck.
Yes, I am still very unhappy with the bridge.
I'm going to change much.

I think the car of your Grandpa is in the garage of my Grandpa. :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Vorsprung durch Technik. (Advantage by technology.)

The narrow tires, the ultra modern lightweight materials and high end aerodynamic body indicate it as an electric powered vehicle, state-of-the-art.

It need much less energy from A to B as these made in Germany superior Hi tec Panther in these Dio.
It is more flat than these turret less Stug III also seen in these Dio.
You can ride inside a cabin instead of these open top Sd. Kfz. 251 as these Dio include too.

It`s gonna be great! It`s gonna be absolutely fantastic!
