Schreiber Bogen Eiffel Tower

A few years ago I bought this beautiful model knowing it would take me years to finish it. Cutting out the first floor took me a long long time to finish and without seeing any progress (you first have to cut out all the pieces before you can start building up) it was not the most fun part to work on... Now I finally see the building rise, my work is speeding up and it's way more fun to work on.

I started with cutting the first floor. You have to cut out all the parts twice because the front and back part are glued together for more strenght. The second and third floor have colored backs and are therefore more easy to cut out.

That's great and very laborious, how many cuts. Beautiful architectural structure, excellent start

After the cutting came the edging. At first I tried to do this with a pencil, but the point was too big for the small parts. So I switched to a paintbrush. This worked out very good.

Before starting to glue together the first floor I build the 4 base pillars.
Then the real work could finally begin, building the first floor.

Just stunning to watch this go up. And yes, so many cuts. But the result must be satisfying. Good work!
