Brittany Chapels by Secanda

Mauther is the one I must thank for posting a prominent link to Secanda's website on his blog. What a lovely surprise I got when I went there. Found a little treasure trove of architectural models of the kind I really like. Most of the subjects are found in Brittany, north-west France, but there are other examples too. This is his site:

[Secanda] Welcome among the paper models

I've build a couple of examples. They are not difficult although the instructions take a bit of getting used to and in some models some of the detail parts are not mentioned at all. Having said that, I've sort of fallen in love with them.

The first four pictures are of Chapelle Saint-Vio de Treguennec and they are followed by Chapelle St-Evy en St-Jean-Trolimon. How do you like them?

Very charming. You seem to be able to knock them out quickly. I had taken a look at these a while back. Those instructions scared me

Thank you for this site. Very cool. I will toast you with a pigfoot and bottle of beer (Bass?)

Thank you for your responses.

Vermin_King: Don't be frightened! A few of the models (those at St Vio and Bruc-sur-Aff are examples) have a photographic build sequence included which will help get your head around understanding the instructions for models without this feature.

MrConk: You're welcome. Bass will do nicely, although it should be Bishop's Finger.

Thank you once again for bringing to us awareness of this site. I've just finished "Capela San Miguel de Celanova" which appeared to me to be the easiest of the selections. Now I am attempting "Chapelle de la Madeleine de Penmarc'h" which is creating more than a bit of head scratching. Fortunately I like to occasionally scratch my head.
As a PS I must add that I don't think (alas) Bishop's Finger is available in my neck of the woods.
