as far as I know, you need to have an account at Klickywelt to view the pics - but at Customize-It you should be able to see the pics without having an account ...


but of course we at Customize-It (and I guess also the guys from Klickywelt) would be honored, if you'd become a member, Richard  ;)



Thank you for the wonderful links, Arizzo !!!

And, thank you for you kind and generous offer ...  :-[

All the best,
Richard

I hadn't seen yet an extense model of port with system X ... It's interesting, though steck is still more appealing to me. ('Miss them :-[ )

But the whole haven is very, very beautiful, Arizzo! :yup:
Thanks for sharing.

It was very cool at Wolfsburg.
I had a great time there.  ;D
There was to much to see.

I enjoy your harbour a lot.

Thank you for all your nice work. :)9

Incredible display Arizzo  :wow: thank you for sharing it with us and for the links. Like Richard said,that barn roof on the warehouse was genius! There is just so much to look at and it is soooo huge! Thanks again.


btw - are you in any of the pictures?

the measure of the diorama-area (build out of tables) is 7,20m x 4,40m - the harbour itself measures approximately 6,90m x 2,80m - at first I thought there is too much space covered with plain water, but the longer I looked at the diorama, the more I came to the conclusion that the huge expanse of water emphasizes the harbour as a real harbour ...



Hello, Arizzo ...

Everyone seems to agree that your diorama appears to be very large.

But, how BIG is it?

Since I don't think metric, I converted your meters into approximate feet measurements. (As everyone knows, "feet measurements" are the old English system that, for some unknown reason, most Americans seem to love.)

The overall dimensions of the entire diorama are more than 23 1/2 feet by about 14 1/2 feet.

The harbour area measures more than 22 1/2 feet by more than 9 feet!

Yes, that is one gigantic, beautiful diorama !!!

And, I absolutely agree, Arizzo, that the large harbour area really emphasizes the realism, but I also think that it definitely adds to the visual magic and drama of your spectacular diorama.

Thank you very much for sharing your marvelous creation with us.

All the best,
Richard

It was indeed a fantastic display - there was something going on everywhere. Unfortunately, we had had to leave early - so we didn't have the time I would like to have had  :'(
But Saskia and I agreed (more or less) to return next year!

It was also nice to meet you finally in reality, Arizzo, after all that time meeting in cyberspace  ;)

If this event will be next year at all ... (I've read that due to less expected visitors the organizers are not willing to continue this event anymore)

wow!!!! that is incredible, i am glad you posted the second link as well, to show us the overall view.  i particularly like the "barn-like" structure, pardon my lack of knowledge on its particular use and name.  it was fun looking at all of the photos, i could almost hear the bustle of activity at the docks as i was wandering around.  thank you for sharing.
