    ... a quick-model in-between? Not that much! But I needed this model
    for a presentation. It took me 35 hours to assemble the model
    right away from the sheets.
    Besides coloring all edges, the model received no upgrades or betterments.
    Exception: The tips of towers and chapels were made from lasered cardboard.

    I've designed and produced this model in 2004 on customer's request with
    the assistance of a good friend. Unfortunately this model is no more available
    from the usual sources.

    But here we go:

    I started with the western transept and gable.

    The western church towers are erected quite easily:

    [​IMG]

    The roof of the extended nave:

    From that angle the view where to assemble is much better:

    This roof ist attached quickly as well as the tower's helmets.

    The western complex is ready. . .!!

    That is a very nice looking model. Those old churches and cathedrals always have interesting architecture. The real old ones seem to have a bunch of added on features through the centuries that really give them character.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures. :thumb: :)

    Beautiful work Thomas! I do have a request though. Could you elaborate on what you mean by "The tips of towers and chapels were made from lasered cardboard."?

    Thanks for sharing your work and for your generosity.
