Question/Request - (I feel a little low asking, but) :oops:

I'm wondering if anyone who is part of Dwarven Forges Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages have linked or seen a link of this build over on those sites? If not, would it be asking too much to have someone post a link to the first page of this thread and maybe a picture, if nothing visual shows with link only.
:idea: I think some builders might enjoy some of the ideas in here. :? :?:

Thank you very much and I would appreciate it greatly. :)

Thanks for the details, those look cool and it helps to understand how you supported the elevation changes. Just one small thing, where does one get Celophabe wrap?
(Sorry, I am super attuned to typos this fall given how many times we have had to reprocess documents that we signed with some stupid error and typo in it, that all 4 of us missed when we ALL signed it...sigh. Financial companies can be such sticklers for actually getting things right. Annoying at the time, but I am actually glad they pay attention to those kind of details.)
My wife bought it two decades ago at 'Party City'. It just happened to be there when I was looking for something to use. If you saw the Coloseum build I posted years ago, it has a few examples. Good luck, sick the wife on this one... ;)

The Plexiglas layout, which worked great as a new flat plane tabletop once is was set in place.
The odd crap CBS & KS-2 beyond the walls are just to hold pieces (alcoves/walls...) in place and support upper layer loads. The large stair out the end was intended to go as high as the slide, but I ran out of KS-1 floor tiles.

Here is a link to Imgur album of the take down pictures of the step well.
I'll try to post some smaller versions here in a bit with a small description of the steps that might be confusing. Take a look and ask anything that isn't coming across well.

Ask anything and I'll try to explain or show more pictures. :)

I will get working on the tear-down stuff next and post the later in the month or 'soon'.

Feels good to be finally done with this fiasco of posting problems. :D
Thanks for hanging in there, sorry for the bumpy long trek. ;)
I don't know how much time you have invested to give us this lovely diorama and all this cool pictures.
But IMO every second was good invested. Thanks a lot for your effort.
BTW: the images of group C are my favorite ones.
:D :D :D :D :D

I'm looking forward to the deconstruction and the pictures to understand in engineering behind it.

So many details .......

Found the frolicking bunnies, cooool :)

You have a lot of round boulders on pedestals! Had to look twice to see if they were Doomrollers (or Great Boulders)
