Have a look at this great diorama:
http://wkhost.webkicks.de/hannibal/Diorama1.jpg

Change the number Diorama1 up to Diorama12 to see all the pictures.

Built in 10 hours from Christel with 5 helpers a total of 26m˛.
Her new one will be bigger  and will be in Playmobil Convention in Wolfsburg (1. + 2.4.2006)

Christel is quite busy with it right now and she will join the forum after her big event!

Well i would be quite happy if only i had such a castle wall  :)
An amazing work there !
Cheers

Panos

I hope the link works

I did copy and paste into my browser, and was able to get each photo downloaded, one by one

(Of course, you have to change the number of the photo to get a new picture)

I would estimate the display to be 10 m x 2.5 m to get to the 25m squared area

Each shot shows different areas of the display
I can only encourage you to take the time to down load the photos.

I think many will find the last photo macabre entertainment.

Enjoy, because I did

Thanks for sharing, Pastifi
And thanks for encouraging her to become a member.
I hope she does.

That's a very impressive display.  I like the tournament scene the best - no. 11.

There are some interesting house designs, for example, the one with the dark roof in the middle of no. 10.

One lot of castle walls are quite a different colour from the others, much darker, and it looks as if someone has managed to join Steck and the new System-X together, although that may be a trick of the camera.

Thanks for posting the link, Panos.  I agree with Meg - let's hope Christel joins us. :)

That display is jaw-droppingly incredible! :omg:

What an amazing collection of medieval and knights. And all of this belongs to one person?! Wow! 8-)

Thanks for sharing this with us, Panos, and please thank Christel for giving her permission. It would be great to see something like this in person one day, but for now I'm very happy to be able to look at the photos. So beautiful!  :love:

That's a really impressive set up.  Unfortunately loose Steck pieces aren't available for good prices here the way they have been in Germany. Really wonderful to see.

Wow - that is really amazing. I have a quite large medieval city myself but it would only cover the first table. Still I have an idea how large it must be. Thanks for the link.  :)
Cheers

I especially liked the church and a little construction place next to the church yard...

@pastifi: I wonder, where you met Christel. It sounds like you know her quite well.
Actually, this huge Diorama has been designed and build by hannibal, as far as I know...  Well, Christel is his mother and surely has to earn credits for this as well, but as far as I got to know this very nice (60+) lady, I doubt that she would claim any of the laurels for herself... ;)

But I completely agree that I am looking forward to seeing the new and even bigger one at Wolfsburg meeting...

best regards,
socrates

P.S.: I added two of my own pictures from church and construction place.
