York Cathedral 1:240 Rupert Cordeux

Another kit after Cordeux - alias Chicken - has just finished.

York Minster

Scale 1: 240

The model has the size of 65 cm x 41 cm x 26.5 cm.
The components for walls, towers, pillars
are on beige cardboard.
The roofs are on white cardboard.
I scanned the roofs and
printed them on light blue cardboard.

Best regard

Adolf Pirling

Great looking model! Agree that the use of colored card stock for the roof was a great choice.

Nice, I built this model early last year, a very long build but worth it in the end!

What a gorgeous model Adolf. I agree with the other remarks about printing on colored cardstock - very appropriate choices.
This is a great hobby for the retiree - interesting, time-consuming, rewarding - and about as inexpensive a hobby as you can find.

Adolf, you did a magnificent job on a beautiful cathedral. We were there two years ago. I have the model but have not made it yet--one of Rupert's older models.
