I just posted this on my FB Page Miniature Real Estate Fansite: Earlier in the month, I mentioned posting more about paper (cardstock) buildings for our members who enjoy building them. Since then, I ordered from Aue-Verlag Mockmuhl (Schreiber-Bogen Kartonmodellbau) on 17 Jan 2022. I just received them a few minutes ago on 31 Jan 2022 all the way from Germany! THAT is fast service! Because they were shipped to the USA, the prices had VAT deducted from them. I will put what I was charged in the remarks portion when you click on the image.
The price WITH VAT is listed in their online catalog. Here: link
For info the email is info@aue-verlag.de
Paying via Pay-Pal they are : paypal@aue-verlag.com
Shipping for the 4 sets was 9 Euro.
The 4 "kits" I ordered are made in the scales I have listed in the remarks section of each one and you can see at the bottom of each outside page (from left to right) the number of printed sheets; Dimensions (Length, width and height); Skill level recommended: Scale of the kit; code number. You will need SHARP knife blades, scissors, a metal 6 inch ruler (for cutting straight edges), white glue (I use UHU clear in a yellow flask from Germany- my supply is almost gone. It dries clear) and a black and or brown wide magic type marker to cover wherever the white card may show during construction.
I sure hope this helps everyone curious about these card building kits from Germany.

I suspect that the links are into a group:

If you do FaceBook, you need to ask to join and answer a few hobby related questions.

I have just done this. Tom Dye (Dye4minis) is the admin.

Those Schreiber-Bogen models are lovely:

A possible use for the spare facades:

Not as nice as the OPs models but free:

I get the same "content not available"

I purchased their 1:250 medieval village set, scanned the pages and reduced them to 1:300 to use with my 6mm figures

I love cardstock terrain, but I hate FB and its kin (Twitter, etc.); term'ed my account years ago, never going back, not even for family connections and photo's. Are they posted anywhere other than FB and its kin? Cheers!

Sorry guys. Thought you could access it without having to join. The page has 1400 members as there is a lot of really great ideas and pictures posted from all over the world about miniature buildings and terrain. Was not fishing for more members- just wanted to share a source for those who are not adverse to paper scenery. (The site has a lot that do know where to go to find some nice ones and where the company has a great reputation.) I will try to post a link for one of the pics as a test to see if you can see it.

Dye4minis, I can see the one you just posted.

I fixed the link for you. Use the img tags next time. grin

Thanks, Bill.

WOW! That is incredible looking, and an incredible amount of work to build!

I print mine on full-sheet label paper, cut, peel, and stick to 2mm thick cardboard cut to size and shape. I do this because the ink/toner is expensive, and my 110# cardstock buildings were taking a beating. The 2mm-walled models are incredibly durable, and hefty -- they will not blow around the table easily. I glue square wooden dowels in the corners and along long wall sections, to avoid warpage. Takes a fair amount of effort, but no painting involved, and they look better than I could ever paint a resin model…

Here is a photo of some of my 28mm castle stuff, along with two siege towers made using the 2mm thick cardboard. The smaller of the two battering rams is made of 110# cardstock, while the larger ram is made of 2mm thick cardboard. This technique is more work, more complex, but the results are far more durable, hefty, and solid.

Thank you for posting, Tom. Cheers!

That's great! Thanks for the tip! I'm going to try that. I have used sheet plastic with the corner supports from either balsa or plastic shapes. You are probably right in that it takes less time than painting a resin model and will still look good on the table. The time you take in reinforcing during construction will let those buildings last a very long time! Cheers, Sgt. Slag!

I tried some of their fantastic paper models years ago and decided it was for individuals that only have a "singular hobby" personality…. which I don't have.

Be careful UHU glue can lose its stick after a while. It was reported on the WorldworksGames forum, back in the day, that models that had been glued solely with UHU clear drying glue came apart later, ISTR they thought that humidity was a factor. The fix then was to use spot applications of superglue to reinforce, or to switch to tacky glue (which was really a thicker variant of white glue like elmer's).

I used PVA Glue on paper/cardstock models, for a while. I discovered that on cardstock, PVA Glue has a working time of seconds only, when applied thinly. I tore up a few, when I tried to adjust their alignment, after gluing. PVA Glue is mostly misunderstood, and also mis-applied/mis-used. For paper models, it can be da' Bomb, if used correctly.

I never had the best of luck using any glue stick. Once I hit upon the technique of using full-sheet label paper, I never looked back. I have had label paper glue dry out, and separate after 10+ years. I am fully aware that my label-clad buildings may come apart. I will deal with that, when I have to. Cheers!
