Yeah, I got some sort of weird "Oops" link only of course it wasn't in English.

The space at the end of the OP's link messed it up.

I'm intrigued, but was expecting something much more exuberant and Liberace-sque (though I suppose that sort of gets it backwards... would be more appropriate to describe Liberace as Ludovican). At first glance it looked more like a gingerbread house, which also has a certain sense...

Huh.  Given how over the top a lot of their "Tribute" pens are, I was not expecting something so, well, sedate.  Especially given Neuschwanstein is just so over the top (my parents toured it on on of their trips to Europe).

Ahh yes, I remember hearing about this a few weeks ago, heard that the fpen was a 144 or 145 size? 

Moved on when I read something like that,

Well, the nib design looks interesting but the picture on the cap makes this look like something from the castle gift shop. I think it’s a bit tacky, to be honest.

Yeah.  True that....  I just saw pix of the new Elvis pen and nothing says "tacky" like the name "Elvis" in gold dots/fake gemstones (couldn't tell which because I really didn't want to look that closely) across the "splat" on the cap....  :o 

But the comment about it being something you'd see in a souvenir shop was also pretty apropos.... Except not for MB prices....

Its a shame its not on a 146. The design isn't as successful as the design for the German Concert Hall. I was very seriously tempted by that one. If memory serves that was on a 149.
