German Kellog's Cereal Box Models

I spent part of my childhood in West Berlin and I remember a series of card models in the mid-1980's printed on the back of Kellogg's cereal boxes. They were background false fronts at 1:87 scale of traditional German houses.

Does anybody know the story behind this? Does anybody know what I'm talking about? Is there any chance that they have been reprinted somewhere?

I recall several "cereal box" model series - though not those specifically (I'm thinking of the flyable airplane/gliders from a bit earlier). Quite a few things listed here Cereal Box Archive but I don't know if it has what you're looking for.

If in doubt, you can always have a look at the archive's list of the AGK (Society for the History of Papermodeling, in German "Arbeitskreis zur Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus"). URL is Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus (AGK) e.V. - Go to Kartonmodell-Datenbank > Verlage Deutschland (komplett) > Kellogg (Bremen).
BUT: Unfortunately the aforementioned houses are not listed there as yet, there are models of some of the 7 wonders of the antique world (~1980ies) and only one model of the Nuremberg Imperial Castle ("Kaiserburg Nürnberg").
Kind regards,
Papercaptain
