Dougs link almost could be an effective ending to a Twilight Zone episode.
Imagine everyday life being controlled by 'giant beings' on the sidelines...spooky!

For me[as someone who does some art and crafting],I am inspired by dedication and commitment to perfection that these projects display. Awesome!

Actually, I've posted a link before.

I've been there four or five times, and it is truly worth an extra visit.

I PMd Brett that he should make an effort to get there when he was in Hamburg last year, but I don't think he got around to it.

For anyone interesting, there are two other things worth seeing in the same building complex: the Hamburger Dungeon (http://www.thedungeons.com/de/hamburg-dungeon/index.html), and the "attic toy museum", which even offers flashlight tours: http://www.dachbodenbande.de/ Something Eddie would LOVE, I suspect.

But the model railroad thing is the coolest.

There's so much stuff it's impossible to see it all in one visit--or ten, for that matter.

There is a constant running gag with people in flagrante The kids don't get the joke. The adults go fetch their friends to point it all out.
