    Here's a photo of the Olszewski WDW Main Street Miniatures platform as was displayed at the D23 Expo. Notice that it includes some pieces like the Train Station that have yet to be released.

    That is simply magnificent. I'm blown away.


    Couple of questions:
    If one were to guess at the approximate retail value, what would you think?
    How many hours of labor went into that?
    What is the size of the scaled down Main Street, USA?.
    What scale does he use...I'd love a reason to bring the train out of the attic....

    It is amazing, isn't it? I personally have the pieces in a mirror backed acrylic display piece as I don't have the room for the layout as was presented at the expo.

    That's just beautiful!

    DH has some trains up in the attic as well- and this might be the only layout I would agree to have around. But N scale is tiny- ours are HO and G. The train for the Christmas tree is G scale.

    It would be nice to have a few pieces though. Can you get just the Partner Statue?

    The Partner's statue is a tiny piece of the Central Plaza piece. Town Square also has the Roy and Minnie statue.

    That is amazing isn't it! I enquired a few days ago over on the UK board if anyone had ordered the castle from mail order and how it survived shipping but no replies as of yet. Disney want just over 80 dollars to send it to me but I'd hate to get it out of the box and find one of the castle spears broken :scared1:.

    Ooh and I love the Main Street Electric Parade from the Disneyland collection! That's lovely, I'd want that as well :goodvibes!

    Wouldn't that be a dream come true to have that whole set and a room big enough to display it all set up.

    I need to make sure my DH NEVER sees this setup!! We bought the castle on our wedding/honeymoon trip last year and love it :lovestruc, but we do NOT have room for the full layout!! We'd have to buy a much bigger house! I can just see us telling our son in 18 years - well, we'd like to send you to college, but we bought a mini Main St instead :rotfl:

    30" x 72" isn't that large. It would fit nicely on my desk. I don't think my boss would feel that that way though.

    I think this gets chalked up to the list of: once I win the lotto, Grandpa kicks it, or I quadruple my salary....
