Illustreret "Nationernes Gade" Series

There was a paper model series in the 1918 -1919 issues of the Illustreret Familie Journal called "Nationernes Gade" (Street of the Nations?). Each of the models is a building from a different country. They are small and were intended to be mounted on top of matchboxes. As far as I know, there were eight models total. The model numbers, countries, and buildings are:

I Italy - Italian Tavern
II Holland - Dutch Mill
III China - Chinese Pagoda
IV Norway - Norwegian Farmhouse
V India - Indian Pagoda
VI Palestine - Church of the Holy Sepulcher
VII Russia - ??
VIII Portugal - Belem Tower

I was able to find all but VI and VII on Esben Rasmussen's Flickr albums (see attached example). Would anyone know where I can find the two models I am missing?

I find what appears to be #29. a rural Dutch building. Resolution is limited so it is hard to be sure. At <https://www.pinterest.com/pin/518617713342424043/>

That same Pinterest site has at least two others - a Crane in the harbor of Gdansk, and a Tower in Prague. "Paper Doll Patty" has posted them. https://www.pinterest.com/paperdollp...paper-dolls-2/

Thanks for the Pinterest info Papermodelfan! I followed the links on the Pinterest pages and they took me to Esben Rasmussen's Flickr as the location of the images. On his photo stream, I found one other model in addition to the three you mention: #30 Joan of Arc's house. Esben lists these four models as coming from magazines published in the late 1930's. I suspect this is a different series with the same name as the 1918 -1919 series. The newer models are much larger and matchboxes are not required. I have another series to collect now! Lol.

Thanks for the suggestion Vking. I have already scoured the issues from 1918 and 1919 and didn't find anything, but I will trying flipping through magazines of other years just in case.

I found thumbnails of the two missing buildings I am looking for (VI and VII) on the AGK card model database: https://www.kartonmodellbau.org/cgi-...amilie-Journal So, they must be available somewhere...

I found a better AGK page that has a list of many (but not all) of the models in both the 1930's series and the 1918 -1919 series, but I am unable to post a link to it because of the way the website operates. You get to the list by clicking on "more information" on the previous page I posted. Once on the Information page there is a link to a list of other models in the same series.
