    Paper Models International (PaperModels.net) sells their French cathedrals. I've also seen them listed on some European companys' websites. I built their Chartres Cathedral. Very nice, but it took some time.

    They seem to be very much alive. Here's their address...

    Instant Durable / English Version

    I only have Chartres at the moment but I'm hoping to get Reims and a couple of others, as soon as I have a long talk with my credit card! :rolleyes:

    Cheers,

    Rick,

    As Chas815 mentioned, try Paper Models International. They are located in Oregon.

    Chartres - l'instant durable

    I4ve just 'tried) to start building the Chartres model, but I find thet that the base seems to be too big for the parts. I get the impression that I must scan the base, then reduce to about 89% scale? Did you find this also?

    Quite right Catsea.
    After cutting out and fitting on to the base, I noted that the sketches of the tabs on the base are in part drawn longer than they should be, but that if one overlooks this, the parts fit well.
