    I'm going with the idea these are not downloadable but they are build reports concerning the magazine purchased models.

    A shame since these models are quite good considering their complexity. Still ... no English or even NorthAmerican paper model magazine available. =(

    you won't be able to get these czech models from the site

    you can purchase some of the models from Jim at www.papermodelworld.net

    Abc

    I am from Czech Republic.

    ABC is some kind of national treasure. It's very magazine with very old tradition originaly created for "young scientist, technics and botanics". In every issue there were some card models to fold.

    The best of them were usually made by Richard Vyskovsky, he created hundreds of card models - for example whole city of historical buildings (it was release after years as a book) - "Mestska pamatkova rezervace".

    The site you are mentioning is just electronical archive of building instructions.

    Maybe you can buy some books released by abc abroad.
    Here are links for the titles (and ISBNs) >

    That is ... awesome.

    I'd love to get that city. The only issue would be that I would love to have it for table top gaming but it's too enclosed.

    edit: unfortunately this is a major language barrier for me. So close and yet so far. =(

    Well, village. It certainly isn't a city, that's for sure!

    I've just started building this city. The city is in 3 sections. The photograph in Magesan's post shows 2 of the sections.
    The only problem with czech models is the instructions. I have tried every language translator and dictionary I can find and so many words I cannot translate. So in the end I am assembling the models by the order the part numbers in the instructions.

    It is a massive hardbound book, beautifully produced, but expensive because of postage costs. But well worth it. It will keep me busy for a long, long time.

    Well that depends on the religious building in the picture, if its a Cathederal then its a City.

    London, the only town to contain two cities, the City of London, and the City of Westminster

    Well,

    it's only half of the model.
    You can see whole model here

    And definitely it's not german, pure czech buildings. All houses exist in real in Czech Republic. It's complited together to create small city, but the buildings exist.
