    Schloss Irlbach

    Thomas, back in the summer, you released the base for Schloss Irlbach on KartonModell. Have you released any more parts of this. I have not been able to find it again. [It would help if I could read German :) ]
    Thank you,
    Fred Zealor

    How did you do that, Darrel? I can't seem to find the download link. I can see all the other member models, but not this one.

    I can´t even see the web page!!!
    Server not found.
    I even googled it, gave me links, but none of them works. Same message "Server not found".
    Is it my PC?

    Look in the thread linked by Thomas' first post (the link following the pics of the train). Near the bottom of the first post in THAT thread, you'll find:

    "Download: HIER!"

    This is the link. I missed it too the first time I looked!

    Thank you, Thomas. I will watch for it and thank you for all these beautiful pieces of paper model history.

  13. Sorry to bother,

    but some of you out there seem to have problems with the
    historic RAPI-cardmodel showing those oldtimer-cars.

    Unfortunately I've made a mistake during the data-preparation
    and I have to apologize for that.

    I've re-created the whole thing, made it "smaller" and uploaded
    the files again . . . now everything is OK.

    Best regards

    Thank you very much for making this beautiful example of card modeling available. I look for and build as many of these early kits as possible using them to teach my grandson about history and card modeling. Also showing there are more things to play with that don't involve a micro processor or video screen. It works. He's now cutting his toy soldiers to add more to his plastic armies.

    Keep up the excellent work.

    Its kind of an irony, that to do this thing that doesn't involve a microprocessor or video screen, we had to use a microprocessor and video screen to find and download them.

    Things that make you go hmmmm.

    Happy modelling,

    Hi there, Roger,

    That´s a really cool avatar.
    Could it be Tom Bourdillion and Charles Evans before their first summit attempt on the Bristish Mt. Everest expedition in 1953?
    Or is it Edmund Hillary and Tenzing . . ?

    Just curious,
    Bengt :roll:

    Hi Bengt,

    Actually, my current avatar is of neither of those that you mentioned, although they're good guesses!

    It's from the cover of the 1978 Black Sabbath album, "Never Say Die!"


    I'm not sure what the suits or the masks are, and I haven't figured out what that plane is in the background either (although I never really tried that hard). I've always liked this cover and thought it might catch some attention. I guess it worked!:grin:

  19. . . . and, not to forget, it was the last tour showing Ozzy being
    the front man. On the european leg of the never-say-die-tour
    a rather unknown ( in Germany, in 78 ) band was supporting: Van Halen . . . but:

    ... couldn't find anything about the cover . . . :-(

    OK - this goes down the road too far - back to cardmodeling.

    Best regards

    One Step Further . . .

    Aw right, Roger,

    Threse are the guys I thought it might be - Tom Bourdillion and Charles Evans, utterly exhausted at the windy South Col of Everest at 7900m after their first (and only) summit attempt which they had to abandon only 100 meters from the top, at 8750m, when they ran out of oxygen:


    However, (as a small consolation prize) they reached the South Summit of Everest, hitherto unclimbed, and broke the previous altitude record.
    They paved the way for Hillary and Tenzing to set up a much higher final camp and the next day they could could surmount the final obstacle (the "Hillary Step") and stand on the highest point at 8848m and, back at base, John Hunt, the expedition leader could telegraph the Queen of England (in time for the coronation) and thus enter them forever in the history books.

    Tom Bourdillion and Charles Evans are almost completely unheard of today although they were two of the finest climbers of their day.

    As Thomas said - back to card modelling,
    Bengt 8)
