Already some years ago I had the Idea to start rebuilding the Palais of the Großer Garten (biggest Park of Dresden of about 1,8 km²). The first Model was completely digital and compared with the already 4th version very ugly. Later in 2012 I started the actual version, using simple building technics and changed the colour of the building from Grey to Tan to get a better feeling of the sandstone of the original Building. In the same year I started to design the model using LDD, dividing the complete buildings into Modules to facilitate the construction and the possible transport.
To start with the physical Model I decided to start with the side wing. Right now eight of the twelve Modules of the side wing are finished - more will be added.
Once finished the Palais will consist of 40 Modules and a bit less than 30.000 bricks and plates.
Actual state of the Building.

Thank you everybody for your comments, they really encourage me to continue.
The completion of this project will need some more years as I have to buy every single brick - and you know, this hobby is not the cheapest one.
