I guess I can imagine the work that it takes to get such an accuracy! I love such things and it's just looking absolutely great! Thanks for sharing the process in such a detailled way as well.

Great work! I hope you will present this nice piece of work in public once in a while...!?

Amazing work, one to be proud of for sure!
I'd never even contemplate a dio on this scale (mainly as i'd have no-where to put something so huge!) so a lot of respect for all the hard work and skill that has gone into this.
A real beauty, and something a bit different, well done.

Wow, just gorgeous! Brings back memories of a lot of time I spent in Holland 6-7 years ago! This is really superb and impressive! Good show!

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks.
I still stand by the fact I couldn't have done this without the great members on Armorama helping out.
Thanks again,
