@ Don - yes, it makes a welcome change
@ dunarispace - I am a client of GPM's e-shop, too. They have good prices for kits, very decent prices for p&p and a good service.

There is a truckload of flying buttresses: 20, to be precise! A strange feature is that they don’t glue directly on the roofs. They pass through holes in the roof parts and glue on a flat surface below the roof level. Maybe the holes are large enough to cope with both the buttresses and the paper thickness in the gluing tabs. Anyway, I guess it will be convenient to slightly enlarge the holes…

If you expect me to make a sensible a-to-z assembly sequence on this model, well, forget it. It will be chaotic…
The pictures show the pointed roofs of the tower. Yet again, some extra card bits helped to make the assembly easier.

It would be hard to imagine a good cathedral model without recessed windows. An automated assembly line would be helpful here! I’ll deal with the transparencies later.

Frankly, I didn’t get GPM’s idea about how to use the laser cut card parts for the tower. Maybe they should serve to discard the paper parts, in order to avoid making so many holes. However, the paper parts are white and the laser cut parts are yellowish and brown on the cut lines. They would not look better. On the other hand, if the card parts were only intended as reinforcement, they should be thinner. Because of the angles, they didn’t fit inside the paper part. I decided to use them as reinforcement and had to cut half a millimeter on each side.

I think they were meant to be painted, Ricardo, but your method certainly works!

Yes, I think Fred is right. Laser cut parts are made to be painted almost every time.

Hello Fred and Tino. Nice to hear from you Well, that's a good explanation. I find the idea a bit odd because paper modeling is much more about assembling than painting. Just the opposite of plastic modeling

The entrances are embellished with fine assemblies that, in my view, were not designed to ease the modeler’s task! Instead of some tabs, I laminated the flat parts with thick card. GPM could well have added laser cut formers to the kit. Well, it is doable…
