Burg Drazice - Erkotyp. 1/200

Well, you can ask what the hell am I doing here, as Glue me! is already doing the same, and proficiently! For that question, I have tow silly answers:
1 - I'll be writing in English (forgive me, but I don't understand German :rotwerd: )
2 - I plan to go from A to B and not, as Glue me!, from B to A.
Puzzled? It is simple, because the kit has two main assemblies - A and B :D

Thanks, Dalibor :)

A 'real' Erkotyp model must have recessed windows and doors. I can assure you that this one is a 'real' Erkotyp...

It is interesting because most of the bigger windows have equal shapes but different painting. The objective is to match the surrounding stone lines with those in the window's parts! As the parts numbers to glue are printed on the small pieces of paper that are to be removed, I put them to paper before removing those paper bits...

Just one picture, of the parts at the roof extremities. The small holes in the middle serve as water drains.

Thanks, Dalibor :) I guess that being a R. Vyskovsky design helps a lot, whether it is a castle or, say, a Ferrari 312 T2 ;)
Have you noticed the new 'Golden Book of Paper Models'? It will be, for sure, on my usual Christmas buy :D (oh dear, still 6 months away :( )

In the meantime, let's go on with Drazice and the main building is complete :)

There is a lovely tower close to the main building and there will be a small bridge linking them! I'm starting now with the surrounding barbicans.

A Base

Hi Ricardo.
I read your comment above about waiting for a base. I have an idea. I was wondering about building or having built, a square four legged drop-leaf table with three shelves below the top. The leaves of the tabletop would snap up to make the distance necessary for the model. You draw out the main part of the village from the first shelf and set it on the top at the left. Then you draw out, from the second shelf, the smaller part of the village that is across the river and place it on the right side of the opened table. Then you bring up the bridge and other parts to join or complement the major parts.

Are you a woodworker? The drop leaf table would save a lot of space, as the leaves could be very long - actually becoming the sides of the table when they are down. It would then look like a small cabinet. Doors could be put on the front to cover the model parts on the three shelves.

Just an idea.

Cheers...John

@ Dalibor - I'm glad you liked it :). Your town is going the right way, too :prost:
I started building in December 2004 and finished in July 2005. Not bad, I think, as there are no major holidays in between :D

@ John - Your idea is very ingenious! The trouble is that I am definitely not a woodworker :( The better news is that, finally, I'm addressing the storage space at home with a new place to put the models. When it is complete, my only excuse will be sheer laziness :rotwerd:

The last task in part A is to put in place the roof supports and the roofs.
The barbicans are so close to the main building that it becomes nearly impossible to take a good shot of the inside. I could have glued the roof supports first but that would make the barbican sections much trickier to handle...

well done indeed!!! =D> =D> =D>
I have to say it again... clean and precise work...
Did you use matches for those roof supports or are they made of paper as well?

Thanks a lot, Dalibor :). The roof supports are paper parts provided in the kit. You can see them just right of 1 Euro cent coin in a previous picture ;) I fixed them with cyanoacrilate glue. Some (few) had to be slightly trimmed. Otherwise, the roof would tend to bend them...

Hi Ricleite,
amazing work! I could never get one of these walls straight. So I stick to planes. Quite colourful model it is.

I'm really glad you liked it :) Thank you very much :)
@ Jan - what you say is puzzling because I find plane models to be harder to build than buildings, because of all those curved surfaces!
For my next model, I'll go back to something that mixes flat and curved surfaces with a lot of parts - Modelik's P4.2. That one is sure to take a very long time to build...
