Welcome

The "Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus (AGK) e.V." (Club for the researching of the history of card board modeling) studies the history of card board modeling from the beginning 500 years ago up to now. Our activities focus on our two databases about card board models and catalogs of publishers and on the annual series "The history of card modeling".

Cardboard model database (18232 Modellbogen)   Catalog database (357 Kataloge)
  We don't know (up to now) how many card board models still exists. But we try hard to collect information about all card board models ever exists in our database. You will be surprised what one can build from paper.     The catalog database contains digital scans of catalogs and price lists of important card board model publishers and dealer from the last 100 years - free to use for everybody.

  This topic points you to slide shows about card board model events (fairs, exhibitions), recent announcements of events, hints about other publications about card board modeling and others.   We are not depending on publishers, revenue from sales promotion or other institutions but we encourage an active cooperation with all producers and publishers. Construction reports from the kit are only considered if they are helpful for another report on a publisher or designer. We are not trying to help modelers to construct their models. There are other platforms in the internet that offer that kind of assistance
