Hi John,

I´m happy to see the fruits of your efforts finished in this competition.

Now the quantity and quality of competitors will grow and grow.

That´s good.

Hello John,

a wonderful model, built simply perfect. How about doing some more pictures, some close-ups and angles from a mini-man's view, to show some more excerpts and details from these stunning facades?
BTW, I hope to finish my Pardubice right in time, I'm a bit under pressure, but hopefully everything will be done right in time.

Thank You!

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Today I received in the mail two lovely prize card models. I would like to thank Jan for arranging overseas shipping and all the administrators of Kartonbau.de for running the competition and issuing the prize models to the contestants. It was very much appreciated.

The modern church and the stately house will be built and posted on the site in the fall. They will carry a very special importance to me.

Thank you,
John

Ich danke euch allen für die netten Kommentare.

Ich habe heute zwei wunderschöne Modelle als Preis in der Post gehabt. Ich möchte Jan für die Versendung danken und den Administratoren von kartonbau.de für die Organisation des Wettbewerbs und für die Vergabe der Preise an die Teilnehmer. Wir wissen das zu würdigen.

Die moderne Kirche sowie das Stadthaus werden gebaut und im Herbst hier gezeigt. Sie haben eine ganz besondere Bedeutung für mich.

Dankeschön,
John

Hello Fred,
Another Ontarian at the end of the 401!
Thanks for the comment.
Right now, I'm working off-line on Montmartre, Le Sacré-Coeur et La Place du Tertre at 1:750 by Pascaline. This winter I had planned to build Pardubice, but Karlstein may come first. I got the model at quite a discount as Scale Model International is closing his business.

Cheers...John

Website

Hello,

In gathering material for an illustrated digital catalogue of models, I came upon this very extensive photographic collection on pictures of Chambord:

Excellent study of the chateau in photos.

Cheers...John
