New diorama museum!

New diorama museum

Dear friends,

Fortunately, Patrick and I can dream of our own
exhibition building.

We will leave Hann.Münden and move to Heilbad Heiligenstadt, 35 km away.
We would like to implement new modern concepts for the presentation of the dioramas on an exhibition space of 220 square meters.

For this it is also necessary to separate ourselves from old dioramas.

The move unfortunately makes it necessary to say goodbye to the "Möckern 1813" diorama.
The "Cröbern 1813" diorama is also cut in half.

I will show the construction progress here, with all the ups and downs of a new building: D

The building's completion date is in spring 2021, including the incredibly complex
move. This scares us a little.

It is a great pity that you are losing Mockern and part of Croburn as these are the dioramas that first inspired me.

Hann Munden was a fantastic site for the Dioramica, if perhaps a little cramped with all the guests and their fabulous offerings.

I hope that your new site will not only be a fantastic success but home for the next Dioramica.

Best wishes,

Chris

Like Chris those 2 dioramas gave me huge inspiration early on in my hobby voyage, at least they will always live on in pictures. A new museum sounds exciting!

I don't think there are many that actually can build a whole house for their figures and dioramas. I can just dream about it. This looks great and I wish you all luck in the future!

The work on our new museum continues. All of our dioramas have a high-quality wooden cladding. High-quality plexiglass panels with explanations of the dioramas were also attached.
The windows are still given foils to balance the color temperatures between daylight and artificial light. Many pictures still have to be hung up, large dioramas such as "Cröbern 1813" and "Teutonic Order 1329" have to be reworked and reassembled.

There are also many new dioramas such as:

Fröschweiler 1870
Tunisia 1942
Rorke's Drift 1879
as well as the new large samurai diorama of a fortress siege

There are also beautiful dioramas from our friend Wolfgang Hartung, who unfortunately passed away much too early, in the exhibition. We will also revise these and they will also get the high-quality wooden surround.

We are also planning three dioramas on the American Civil War.

So there is still a lot to do!

We would like to open our museum next year with the 3rd DIORAMICA, which is unfortunately also delayed. We will announce the date in good time for all dealers and exhibitors or interested visitors.
