The show at Kulmbach, Bavaria would not have been the success it was without Franz Winkler in more than one way. On the grand scale of things, Franz directed the show for years. This is the first year he was able to delegate some of the responsibility of the show. I do not know how any one person could coordinate everything that goes on at that great event.
On a more personal note, my stay in Kulmbach would have been very different if Franz was not there because I think we ate most of our meals together, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I did not have a bad meal in Kulmbach. I didn’t come home with my girlish figure either. (Of course, I didn’t arrive with one:) ).
Franz sent me some photos from the show. The dioramas are his. Penny Meyer told me before the show to look for the dioramas. They impressed her very much in 2013. They impressed me in 2015. Again, I must say photos do not do justice to the beauty and the intricate work that is seen when you are standing in front of one of these beauties. I will add the dioramas to Franz’ gallery page.
Here are the photos Franz sent from the show:
