This cooks really nice.

It is a shame that the sky is the same colour but there is a lot of hard work here.

Well done.

Best wishes,

Chris

I have been in front of the reconstruction of parts of the original one in Berlin: You did a very good job and choose an exclusive topic!.

That is a quite beautiful piece of architecture, colourful and exotic. :-D

I'm glad I saw this, I like the top down pics on the blog too.

Is the diorama still in existence? What are your plans for it?

I visited your blog and enjoyed the additional photos, but I would also have interest in seeing a few dozen more, including close-ups.

How easy is the dio to transport? Perhaps you could talk to Remco about packing it up and bringing it to FIGZ next year...

The diorama still exists.
Thank you for your visit to my blog. I will put other pictures as soon as possible and especially close-ups.

The dio is easy to carry.
It will be visible at the exhibition Savoy Modeling Chambery November 2 and 3, 2019 ...

Huge job, stephane42 :drool:

I have also seen the pictures on your blog: it's a construction full of details and very close to reality. :notworthy:

Only three years to build it? Surely it would have taken me much longer to do, hahaha.

Congratulations. :yeah:

Santi.

The end result as seen is pretty cool. Do you have photographs of your scratch building efforts as each stage unfolded ? If you do, flood them here upon your post. Those i would find very interesting to view. Well done.____Sorry! A wee bit late, but welcome to this happy diverse little place. BB

Babylon is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

UNESCO has inscribed World Heritage Friday Mesopotamian site of Babylon in Iraq, a country torn for forty years by the war. The Iraqi archaeological authorities were relying heavily on this issue, which has been used five times since 1983 to inscribe this site of 10 km2, of which only 18% was excavated. Located 100 km south of Baghdad, the city of Babylon is more than 4,000 years old.
