That's really cool these miniature models, hidden gems in a matchbox! It requires a sharp eye and a steady hand to cut and paste all those small parts. Once again, you are the proof that paper modeling is totally boundaryless, and in your case also not space consuming .

The answer is simpler than you can expected. Of course, one can point out some manual skills and 40 years of the experience, but there are two my handicaps: myopia and an Asperger syndrome, which made me a perfect micromodeler. The first allows me to not use any contraption nor even a magnifying glass to see every detail while the latter causes me focusing on the smallest details, which were always of my greatest interest. For example, if you'll take me to the mountains with a camera, perhaps I will bring back few hundreds images of mushrooms, flowers, stones and pine cones but not a single landscape. Exactly my motto is: the smaller the better.

One of my railway models: German-type small shed for a single steam locomotive, 1/500. It fits into the matchbox however due to the smoke exhaust and a pipe on the roof the matchbox cannot be closed nor the model really hidden, so this is fifty-fifty matchbox scale model.

It is the first building of a planned Bahnbetriebswerk (a complex depot) which will comprise of a water tower, a sanding point, a coal with a crane, a signal box and a locomotive itself. But, of course, it would be no longer matchbox scale model.

Andrew -

A splendid little building!

I look forward to seeing the Bahnbetriebswerk someday.
