Hello from new chap Gerald

My main hobby is collecting 1:43 diecast and plastic vehicles; but I got into paper modelling to create display backgrounds for them. Using paper and card is cheaper than other media and it has the neat trick of being easy to alter the scale --- lots of modelling is in 0O scale like Kingsway models or nothing stated like the lovely French buildings from Mirontaine (which suddenly stopped trading a few years back).

Speaking of French buildings; does anyone know of card models of a Colonne Morris (the advertising columns) or a Vespasienne (crudely aka a pissoir)?

I do get led astray from the display idea by building cute little dioramas like the French ones from kids' magazines of the Thirties featured on Agence Eureka's Flickr pages; and I've also just got hold of a couple of Fotomo books via Amazon ….

Hello, Gerald. I think someone did do a Vespasienne, as you so politely put it, but for the life of me I can't remember where or when. Perhaps someone here can help:

This is a German style of the essential street furniture that I've never seen before. I have some models of old German cars which could go with this (and there are lots of German card model buildings online). Parts of it could be adapted to the French version I had in mind, which also cropped up on the streets of Birmingham (England) and Copenhagen.

V & A is an unlikely source; but I recently found 4 tatebako kabuki scenes on website of the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia. Can't remember how I did it, but NGV kabuki on Google and specify images, and there they are
