    Hi all card modellers,

    Here are some recent pictures (at our sister site Kartonmodell-Forum) from the card modelling museum that opened on the 16th of December in Heidelberg, in western Germany:

    The museum wil now be closed (from the 18th) for the Christmas and New Year holidays and the grand (official) opening will take place on the 13th of January, 2007, at 10 o´clock AM.

    Here´s a link to the official web page (in German):

    Best regards,
    Bengt Fredén, Stockholm :smile:

    Do they only have architectural stuff? If so, bummer... But it's pretty cool that it exists at all!

    Wowie Wow wow ... Looks like alot of Betexa stuff but at least I get the sense how big the builds are.

    Scratch that! I see now that this is posted in the Architecture section. But of course that's what they have.... ;)

    Card Modelling Museum


    I think most of them are actually Schreiber-Bogen models, for example The Empire State Building, The 'Frauenkirche' of Dresden, the Colosseum in Rome, the 'Berliner Dom' or 'Reichstag', and so on.
    But you are right about Betexa too - I recognise the Hradcany complex of Prague . . .


    I think we can safely expect card models of every conceivable kind - these are probably just a few models that were delivered for the first days that they were open to start on the exhibitions.
    I posted it here because the pictures I found were mainly of architecture models and I thought that might appeal to those who are interested in such models.

    For those lucky ones who are able to visit the museum on the 13th of January, I´m quite sure that the museum will have a lot to show, not just architecture.
    If you follow this German link, you´ll get the idea:

    Best regards,

    The museum is just great.

    I told you, Bengt, I have to make plans to visit Germany (and Sweden) in the near future!

    Also check the museum at Bremerhaven Maritime Museum (sorry, lost the link).

    Soon as I get my passport I'm there, might take a few years though.

    Hola Gerardo!

    Here´s a link to the museums of Germany, among them the Bremerhaven Maritime Museum:

    You are of course very welcome to Sweden. Just let me know when you arrive in Stockholm and I will show you the most important sites.
    One of them is the 17th century war ship "Wasa", from 1628, which foundered on it´s maiden voyage when sailing out from Stockholm´s harbour - a great disaster in that day: - choose English in 'Language'.

    And if you go to Heidelberg, be sure to carry along a digital camera so you can post some pictures for the Forum!

    Hasta lluego,
    Bengt :grin:

    By the way, the pictures on the museum show the architectural models out of cases. This means dust is going to give hard work, don't you think?

    WOW!! What a ship!

    Do you think you can find it in paper in one of our friendly providers?

    Wow, that's beautiful!
    I think the best you can do to get something close to this is a Shipyard model.
