Catedral de Leon - 1/300

I'm starting another Merino Model - Leon's Cathedral, at 1/300.
As usual with Merino, the graphic quality is rather basic. However, I hope it will turn out as a pretty model because the subject is very nice and there is a lot of detail. Something close to 400 parts, many of them very small. Promising =)...

RE: Catedral de Leon - 1/300

Hi Ricardo,
I've been waiting for your next model. You do not disappoint! A challenging model with many small parts. Just your cup of tea.
Good stuff!

Ein schönes Modell, vor allem auch durch die detaillierte Darstellung des Kreuzgangs.

Und wieder eine gotische Kirche, bei der den Erbauern bei den Türmen die Luft ausgegangen ist... =)
Bis die Tage...

Thanks for your posts :)
I decided to start with the buildings that stand next to the cathedral.

Moving on with the cloister, I attach pictures of the many buttresses and small details that will be added latter. The second picture shows the completed inner and outer walls.

Matting the inner and outer parts of the cloister proved easier than I expected. Adding the buttresses and details was not a problem, either...

The cathedral has some adjacent buildings that are part of the kit. Not as many and as complicated as in Burgos but they end up taking a fair share of parts.

That's good Yu, as I also run out of :rotwerd: :rotwerd: :rotwerd:... :D
Assembling the roofs was fairly complicated. There is a big, white, part that serves as a basis for the roofs. To put that part in place, I had to use John's shelf method, notably in the cloister's inner walls.

The entrance is a tricky assembly, as you can see in the first picture. All the walls for the lower part of the cathedral are on the second picture.

I choose a top-down method to build the main part of the cathedral. It is still too early to say whether it was a good choice or not. However, as the tabs are on the floors, rather than no the walls, I think it is easier like this...

Hi Ricardo.
It looks as though the parts are fitting extremely well. Of course, the hands at work here ensure this!

I really like the lancet recesses between the three main west doors Ricardo. A nice touch.

Hi John :) I agree, of course. The colours are not the best point on this model but the detail to build is very interesting.

@Tino - not really. I'd rather say that I play while working on them :D

The cathedral has 2 different towers. What I show today are pictures from the upper part of one of them. I used the same method as in Burgos for the tower top parts, as it went well there.

A couple of pens will do the trick as well, Yu ;) At least, it works with me :rotwerd:
To build the top of the other tower, I tried the same approach – cut the 8 parts of the kit and glue them over a scratch octagonal pyramid. It didn’t work because of several reasons:
- The details are much smaller;
- The details are not outlined in black, as those of the other tower.
As a result, I probably didn’t cut them properly and the middle ones were not aligned on adjacent slices. As it would be a nightmare to trim each of them on one side, after gluing, I choose to cut them off completely and use a different method to make them. Hopefully, the method is self-explanatory in the pictures.
The last picture shows the happiest ending I could get from what was, definitely, a terror script :rolleyes:…

For the main buttresses, I followed the same method as in Burgos: fill them with card. It worked well, here, as the buttresses are rather slim - less than 2mm. The top-down assembly went reasonably smoothly, too. The big hole on the floor helped a lot...

What I have left to do on this model is to assemble a lot of buttresses and other details, already 'processed'...
In today's pictures are the tallest side buttresses. They go straight to the lower floor level.

The graphics are rather simple, Wiesel, but somehow they make up to a pretty model. That's usually the case with Merino :)

I agree Ricardo. It's not the graphics that will catch the eye initially, it's the wonderful complexity of the architectural elements which have been so skillfully constructed.

This is a beautiful model. Certainly an advanced model of note.

How is the display space holding out in the glass cabinet wall Ricardo? Lots of room for more masterpieces?

Cheers...John

Nice to hear from you, John :) You are right. This is not an easy model to assemble. Of the 3 Merino cathedrals I've built so far, it is the hardest one but Burgos is not far away...
There is still plenty of room on the glass cabinet wall :P. Space shouldn't be a problem in the near future. Anyway, after a very short break with Schreiber's Stiftskirche Stuttgart, I intend to build a plane.
Well, you must have guessed it - Leon is complete :yahoo:

Well, may be. But it doesn't look simpel :) and gives a good impression of the original building.

One reason for this are the colours, I think. Not "candylike", very natural.

Ricardo, thank you for this wonderful report and the marvellous photographs. You have made this model a 'must' to add to the cathedral collection. I will have to be prepared to pay more for the shipping than the value of the publication. The model retails for 21.99 euros. The shipping is 25.00 euros. ( Moduni)

I do not understand the high cost of shipping here. I believe shipping from France is 9.00 euros.
But, if this is the only place where the model can be obtained...

Cheers...John

@John - the 'trick' I use is to make a single (large) order a year at moduni. It is not too hard to get to the free shiping value :rotwerd: For you, outside Europe, the value is a lot higher but perhaps not too much...
