On a seasonal note.

I found this site www.gumhold.com two or three years ago now. There are several useful models to download which include an advent calendar http://www.gumhold.com/papier/Advent/advent.html.

I have intended to make these models to use with a floor layout over Christmass in the past, but never got started.

That is until last night. Here is the first, thrown together just before midnight yesterday.



Shocked Confused

Cheers

Perhaps I should have said that the actual idea is to complete a model village. There is an A4 sheet to print out and make every day. Some of the bigger model come on two sheets (to make over two days).

I have managed to complete these so far, but not had time to post or do anything else.



3 December Bauernhaus (farmhouse)



4 December Pizzeria



5 December Laden (shop)



6 December Kappelle



7 December Reihenhaus (Terrace / town house)
There is the option to make several of these into a row of houses., I may do this later.




8 December Schuene and Stall (Barn and sties)



9 December Bahnhof part 1 (Station)

Slightly late,

but here is the finished station building. I will get the camera out rather than my phone and post a better picture tomorrow. A lot more fiddly and more to it than the previous models.



10 December bahnhof (station)

A few more completed models, hopefully will be able to setup with trains this weekend, but I am busy with work and other things and these are taking longer to make than I thought. The chap on the monument is a Martin Gumhold the designer of this series of models.



11 December Backhaus (outbuilding) and statue on plinth. There is a water fountain / trough, which I have not yet made as well.



12 December FeuerWehr Part 1 (Fire Station)



13 December FeuerWehr Part 2 (Completed Fire Station)

Here is one of the trains Marklin tinplate. I am slightly behind with the buildings due to work and printer running out of ink. It may well be Xmas eve before I catch up.

Following this with interest. Reminds me of the Christmas village I had as a kid. No train, though - Hornby tinplate would never have fitted; the houses were made of plaster and were roughly N gauge. We made mountains from scrunched up and partially straightened out dark brown parcel paper, and lots of cotton-wool snow and glitter powder. Happy days Smile
