    Maybe the flat top building is ideal, especially balcony area ... but again that is a personal taste. Another idea is a large billboard promoting USA warbonds, that can be pasted on any wall and size does not matter ...

    Sublime idea Ivan (well Shep Paine made a WISE decision in Catania 2008 I can see that, in rewarding you the best story telling trophy...his BOOK) I love you

    Go for it Nannu, it will not take 6months to produce for sure Evil or Very Mad

    Who Dares Wins Nannu, so be bold and daring so you won't give the enemy any quarter this December and you'll run away with the top honours for yourself and SSM cheers

    Thank you for the compliment Ray, but this background thinking comes from the master thinking himselfand from my field of work logistics, when you work for marketing and communication you start thinking as the man in the street, something that I think we overlook in our tiny world ... dioramas are one of the best sources of communication and something I am grateful to Shep and also to Marijn van Gils and MIG teaching, something all of them stress out is if from first impact the message has to be 100% clear and not leave the viewer make his own judgement or read captions.

    Why do i keep on telling you that it is your best work so far. I guess that you are actually getting better. There is so much to see and so many things going on that it takes a long time to take it all in. It is absolutely brilliant. No words can do it justice, a modelling masterpiece!!

    Awesome work Pec...truly a veteran master modeller! Go ahead with wartime posters as Ivan suggested...I'm sure the dock wa full! To go a step further (maybe too late now) maybe even graffiti would have been a good idea...

    Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh!

    Prosit Louis

    Awesome as always....however this time you've raised the bar higher, dear Nannu.

    A benchmark to look up to - in whatever category of scale modelling - that's for sure. Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

    Prosit Again.

    Thanks just the same anfd glad u liked it....6 months it took to complete....
    IN nannu pec What a Face

    This is an absolutely fantastic diorama, something rarely seen with ships, especially at this size. There is so much intricate detail, and I keep going back over the photos to take it all in.

    I don't believe the boxcars for the train are correct though, they have the curved roof and the bumpers on each end of the car which were on European train equipment, train equipment in the States never had that. The couplers would jolt together and automatically lock and each side of the roofs were angled slightly, each side beating flat with a walkway on top.
