José Escandel   -   Alicanti, SPAIN.
Assembled between February 2008 and May 2008.

As reported by vivirdigital.com and sent to us by José:

José Escandell, 62 years old, received this gigantic puzzle as a gift from his son Reyes.

He began assembling it in February 2008, aided at times by his son and his daughter-in-law, and finished the puzzle in three months. In addition, it took 2 extra months to frame the puzzle, which now hangs in the living room of his house and in a frame with glass to protect it. Framed, it weighs over 200 kilograms.

José Escandell confesses that he has been a fan of puzzles for a very long time, but that up to now, the largest puzzle than he had done was of five thousand pieces. He also makes minature ships and deals with painting them.. As to what is necessary to make such a large puzzle, Escandell points out that the necessary qualities are "patience, time and technique."
