Marble run serpent: Harro Reimers

A simple black and white, 7-part model to create a marble run. This model is ideal for beginners. You can colorize the parts as you like (see the examples to the left); it is easiest if you do it before cutting the parts. This model was first published for the modell-hobby-spiel 2008 fair in Leipzig and given away for free to many young and old fans of marble runs. As it continues to be a sought-after model we decided to offer it here for download.

In the 2nd half of the 19th century lampshades were pretty common to reduce the brilliance of the new improved oil lamps. These shades often looked quite pretty, in particular when lit; some of them were real "magic lamps" that changed their colors and even images when backlit. Following an exhibition of historical lampshades on the modell-hobby-spiel fair in Leipzig and in the Schreiber museum in Esslingen we now offer 5 of them for download. For further information see the article about Lampshades by Dieter Nievergelt in the book "Von der zweiten in die dritte Dimension – 500 Jahre Bauen mit Karton“, Möckmühl 2015.
