Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus (AGK) e.V.

The "Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus (AGK) e.V." is a German nonprofit club. We investigate and record the history of card board modeling (papercraft) in Germany, Europe and all over the world from the beginning (around 500 years ago) upto now. Our main tasks are the maintenance and extension of our public databases about Card board models and Publisherer catalogues and the publication of our annual series "About the history of card board modeling".
We are not depending on publishers, revenue from sales promotion or other institutions but we encourage an active cooperation with all producers and publishers.
Interested? Please look around.

Please note:
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.
We also don't maintain an online shop for card board models.
