The free 1:800 model is a small and simplified version of an exceptional 1:350 design by Thomas Pleiner of the power plant with full interior - check out:

Having worked in the Nuclear Power industry for a brief moment in my life, I have to say those models are really amazing!

No one has mentioned it, but an added bonus on the AREVA site is the PDF download that covers basic card modeling techniques in several languages:

http://www.areva-np.com/common/liblo...de_ebook_a.pdf

Pretty concise and useful. That would be a handy thing to give a person new to the card modeling hobby.

This model is also one of the downloads on Kartonmodell Forum, along with with a detailed model of one of Thomas' earlier nuke plant models. The detailed model is huge (you will spend some time downloading all the pieces of it), but well worth the download. You will have to register with the site to get access, but definitely well worth the cost of admission (free).
