Not only am I a Dwarven Forge nut but I'm also a model railroader. My wife is a saintly woman.

I was coming into this thread expecting to see a new Sorn layout, but I am pleasantly surprised! That is just amazing. I assume it is spread over several rooms and is far too big to see an overall view. :[ The stadium is amazing, the airport is too. The terminal building is incredible, it all is really. From tiny details like the shark chasing the diver, to the huuuuge mountains, it is all very amazing. Thanks for sharing!

That is beyond amazing - it is unbelievable. I need to plan a trip to go see that with my son (oh, and somehow I will have to convince my wife to go). I love it! Thanks for letting us know about this.


Oh and thanks for the kind compliments, LegoRick. My city is an anthill compared to this beautiful masterpiece. How many euros did they say that airport cost to build? Holy crap, but what an absolute visual delight!

Well, this is in the "NON" Gaming Talk area, so no Sorn layout ;)

I did watch the whole video and check out some images online - the thing is in its own building and it has walkways for you to take a tour of. So it is quite massive and very impossible to view the whole thing at once.

Yeah, I've see that -- IIRC, the setup includes an airport with planes that actually taxi, "take off" and "land" (on poles). It's . . . wow.

(and, sadly, I also am a DF fan and a model railroad fan -- my collection of N-gauge model railroad accessories, including a ton of imported Kato buildings and tram tracks, is almost as big as my DF collection)

(my wife, too, is a saint)

Here's a shot of one of my layouts -- at N-scale, each auto is about 1" long, the buildings tend to be from 5" to about a foot high.

Sadly, since the move, my train stuff is ALSO in storage. And I haven't had the heart to open the boxes -- not sure how much of it is in pieces. sigh...

The whole Dwarven Forge thing started for me, because back in 2010 I bought my business partner a gift certificate to a train shop in Manhattan. He then proceed to order model train items from everywhere, and covered our entire office in a train set up. After a few months he must have spent about 20x what that gift certificate cost.

Suddenly I started thinking about my lifelong hobby of miniatures again..
