Manni,

Hello and welcome!

We probably over use superlatives here, but that is really exceptional.

I would love to see a tutorial on the ground work? In particular, the water...

All the best,

Guy

Manfred, the Gotha diorama is stunning!  You certainly have a
tremendous talent for bringing your imagination to life.  I am
really awed by your work, my friend!

Truly magnificent, Manfred!  As others have said, Best Diorama Ever!  Rest assured that on this forum (and this is the only place that matters, really), you have taken top honors.
Cheers,
Bud

I agree totally with Bud on this one! Truly Magnificent work Manni!

I have to congratulate you on this piece of work, Manni. Absolutely amazing work on both the aircraft and the base. Both very spectacular. I could look at those pictures all day!
Cheers,
Gary

What can I add that has not already been written? I am lost for words to describe this - 14 months is a long time on one project, but it shows in every way. I could not even dream of making this.

Platinum would have been an appropriate award without a doubt. And never mind the judges - they are the least important people - as the audience demonstrated.

Thank you all for your kind. This keeps me at the bench and makes me to tell new stories in my Dioramas.
Since Iam  in this Forum, I see that I have still a lot to learn to make a real good model, but I think this board is a good source to improve myself.
