About this Model Series

This download page is a supplement to Axel Huppers’ article "Die Geschichte der virtuellen Kartonmodellzeitschrift 'The Transatlantic Paper Model Magazine'" (the history of the ‘Transatlantic Paper Model’ magazine), published in ZGK 21 (2021) (see here for an exemplary extract). This magazine saw 2 issues, both of them published by Ralf Schnurbusch in an English and a German version. You can download them in the members’ area of this website. You can find a catalogue of Ralf Schnurbusch’s former company "lighthousemodelart" in the AGK Catalogue Database; the catalogue ID is 389.

For the 2nd issue of the "The Transatlantic Paper Model Magazine" Peter Wehrhahn was asked to provide a simple model of an American "False-Front" building, and he complied (this is model No. 4: Greenfield Feed and Seeds).

To give access to this model the AGK again provides a download version and adds other models of the same model series.

The design focused on easy-to-build models with realistic coloring. Expert model builders have a lot of options to improve or “super” the models.

About 2004 Peter Wehrhahn, who was always interested in US railways, wanted to add some typical “Western” buildings. The wooden models he preferred were relatively expensive, and he also looked for a way to thank those who already had provided him with free card models. He created these models with a black drawing pen on translucent film and hand-colored them with Faber watercolor pencils. The he scanned them, added the text, and there you are …
