There were approximately 30 aircraft models, 6 ships and 11 army models.
The scale for aircrafts was 1/33,33, the scale for ships was 1/200, the scale for army items (tanks etc.) was 1/20.
Sometime after the war some of these they were (more or less legally) reproduced and are now occasionally found on internet sites...
Read more about it in the article by Axel Huppers, pages 55-58 in: Zur Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus, Heft 1, ed. by Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus. - Hamburg: Scheuer & Strüver 2001.

It was surprising that the build method was not that much different then how we do it today. The kits reminded me of the Wilhelmshaven models from the 1950's.

If my ancient brain cells are working correctly I think Papermau posted these as part of his sporadic History of Paper Kits postings. As his former site was hacked they may not be on his current site.
