Re: Antietam: Confederate Firing Line

Dear Chris,

It is interesting that you have been inspired by Wolfgang Meyer. I did not know of him (being one who likes to see dioramas, but not actively 'into' them) until I saw this recent tribute post dedicated to him:

Some wonderful photos of absolutely brilliant dioramas across a range of topics/eras.

To me, your own are even more *amazing* as they are dynamic games, with each move a min-diorama. Superb.

Regards, James

Re: Antietam: Confederate Firing Line

Hi James.

The link you mention is an obituary for poor Wolfgang Hartman, another diorama genius who sadly passed away recently.

Wolgang Meyer is alive and well thankfully.

You might like to have a look at his site.

It is inspirational and you will notice there is a stellar collection of contributors.

Thank you again for your kind words.

Chris

Re: Antietam: Confederate Firing Line

Dear Chris,

Oh my goodness, what a red-faced mistake!

I did not know him by name (clearly), but I have seen Wolfgang Meyer's marvellous "Cröbern 1813", "Möckern 1813" dioramas on that website, many times in the past. In fact it was a joy to see the developments with it leading up to the bicentennial of Leipzig (if I recall the timing correctly?).

Thanks for gently correcting me!

Regards, James
