MONUMENTS OF FORGOTTEN TIMES - Buildings, properties and industrial plants as they
hardly exist today, but which should be remembered here in an artistic way. Settled in the first half of the 19th century, such buildings and facilities can hardly be found today. The unique
architecture and optics should be saved from being forgotten as a model. Buildings that, like their models, are made of wood, lavishly painted and realistically aged can be found in their
original scenery - in lifelike dioramas, which without exception reflect the time of the last century and thus artistically memorialize the architecture and construction methods of that
I prefer the railway scale hO/H0 (1:87) or the larger scale o (1:48) and, in a few
exceptions, the smaller scale N (1:160). As with the real buildings, the models are largely made in the same construction method and the same materials - made of wood and plaster. Resin or
metal is only used in a few exceptions. These models have their origins as so-called "Craftsman kits" in America and are less known in Germany. In addition to the main components made of wood
(laser cut, milling technology or individual strip wood), other parts are made of plasterm but also resin, plastic, white metal, cardboard and paper could be included. Countless decorative
items complement most of these kits and bring the scenery to life. Well-known manufacturers are, for example, SierraWest Scale
Models, FOS Scale Models, Bar Mills Models, Carolina Craftsman Kits, American Model Builders, Foggy Mountain
Models, Banta Model Works, Ragg's...To Riches, ITLA Scale Models Inc. or B.T.S. & Master Creations or the no more existing companies such as South River Model Works or Fine Scale Miniatures by the legendary George Sellios. Some further models
made of plastic are coming from the well known German manufaturers Gebr. Faller GmbH, Kibri & Vollmer which are all typical suppliers of German structures for model railways
(Modellbahn / Modelleisenbahn), coming in pre-colored plastic and require painting and weathering for a realistic look.
