Medieval City

Fabulous work, Ken,

This immediately reminded me of the amazing scratch-built Prague model by Antonín Langweil, which now resides in the Museum of the City of Prague:



If you are interested, here´s some more to read about it: http://www.prague.net/langweil-model
There are eight close-up photos futher down the page (Langweiluv Model Prahy): http://www.muzeumprahy.cz/texty/expozice.php

I assume you already know about the architecture models from Betexa in the Czech Republic?: http://www.betexa.cz/eng/btx-ramy.html
A while ago, I received the Town Hall model - it is simply beautiful.

Keep up the good work, Ken!
Best,
Bengt :smile:

Hi Bengt,

Yes, I had seen photographs of the model by Antonín Langweil. That is a really beautiful work of art.

I wasn't intending to expand my city to quite that size :roll:
my wife would kill me :( but it would be fun :twisted:

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement. I was thinking of taking a break and making something completely different, but I think I'll press on and finish the first section.....

As far as prices in Europe, don't forget the dreaded EC VAT. 17.5%, last time I checked. Or does that not apply to card models?

Beautiful Architectural Model Kenw. It's really nice to see people that have devoted their time in building such tiny buildings with passion :grin:

btw, can you point me in the directuion where I can get "The Medieval City" and "The Unseen University"? They're really gorgeous :)

How do you come across these Book type card models of Cities and Universities? Do you have a cataloge or something :)

I'm also interested in architectural models but on a 'group of buildings type of magnitude like your "The Medieval City" and "The Unsees University". Can you give other examples of these types of models that I might be interested too?

Thanks! Again Great build! :)

Sigh! Normal bookstores for the Unseen University...unfortunately for me I'm in the Philippines and I don't think that Bookstores here carry these types of books...sigh!

Amazon.co.uk has the Unseen University book for mail order.

Amazon.com in the USA has the Unseen University book for sale by some sellers.

The ABC Medieval City book could probably be ordered from a Czech shop. Do a Google search for The Medieval City by Richard Vyškovský, published by ABC. There might be some other source, perhaps someone on Cardmodels.net knows of some and will help you out.
