Thanks Vermin King for posting our recent paper models. And thanks to all of you who have so kindly visited our site.
Even if I didn't show off so often, I still keep an eye on the forum, guys. We've been madly busy in the last month preparing lots of new series and models for the summer.
We are actually out from the city, Madrid, back in my husband's hometown, Ourense, for some days only partially off, as we keep on posting regularly in our blog. We are also collecting new material for further new challenging and exciting war games and mediaeval papermodels that we hope you will be enjoying in the following weeks.
Here some views of our latest models already uploaded:
Thanks for your support and comments :-) We hope you're enjoying a fabulous summertime :-)
But most important, keep in the loop during the coming weeks as we will be starting a series of forts based on those built in Cuba by the Spanish army by the end of the XIXth century, with some History articles about that period, also regarding the Spanish-American War.

Hope you like our new models and enjoy with them. Please share your photos with us if you ever build any of them!
I frankly hope I have some minutes to come into the forum for actual greetings during these days, but in case I can't, we wouldn't like to miss the chance now to wish you all a fabulous Christmas time and the best for the new year, full of paper stuff :-)

Thanks for letting us know about some of the upcoming models
Have you considered doing the old bridge in Ourense or any more of the chapels? I'm assuming the cathedral is too complex of a project. Would there be enough archeological information to do any of the Roman facilities in Gallicia?
We'd love to do the Cathedral but, as you say, this is quite complex, some of the faces of the buildings are difficult to take pictures of. Anyway this is something we always have in mind.
Also the Roman bridge is among our projects for the next future, if not a completely accurate reproduction, a very similar bridge. As per the other Roman settings in Galicia, I'm afraid they are all "too ruined", you can find the remains of many of the so-called "castros", these are merely the basement stones of the buildings. Galicia's climate is very wet and rainy so green grows quickly all over any abandoned place and we are afraid too many of the spots were really abandoned for years, even if today there's a little bit more interest in preserving such treasures. As a curiosity, and to give you an idea, not too far from Ourense, there's a castro that, depending on the season of the year and the level of the dam, remains under water.
Among the best preserved Roman monuments in Galicia, the walls of Lugo are those which would well make the trip worthwile.
We'll keep in mind your suggestions and make as many pictures of that kind any time we will be in Galicia. We will not forget about more chapels :-)
Many thanks colonelshofer!! It's a lot of work for just the two of us (my husband and me) to build up all those models and keep the blog updated. We sometimes feel a little dissapointed thinking there's no one "behind" interested on downloading and building up the papermodels. These comments are very encouraging and help us not to give up! :-)
Among my projects for the blog in the coming months is to build up the list you mentioned, I am aware that we have now too many models and it is not always easy to review them all in a fast and efficient way. But, as I was telling you, it is just the both of us to do everthing and we have very limited time.
In the meantime, for a review on the published models, we recommend you to use the labels list, if you click any scale, you will get all posts ordered. I know this is not a very fast track but we will strive to have a list ASAP.
Yes, among our projects is another university building. Even all windows were replaced in the University area, this building I refer to is keeping the original window structure, so I hope you will like it better.
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you an estimate date on which this could be published, we have very little time for the many projects we always have in mind :-( I will put it at the beginning of my list!
Hi! Firstly, we understand arquitecture as part of the story of the people who built, lived or use the buildings that inspire our models and we have always struggled to bring in the history related together with the papermodels we publish.
Additionally, we have always thought about Cuba war as one of the many interesting events in our history, worthy to be developed and shared with all wargamers and military modellers. We thought that those are the kind of buildings preferred by them.
Finally, the fact that my grandmother's grandfather was a General commanding the island at that time might have also helped making the decision on building these models:-)
marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.
Mar 22, 2020 18:39:00 GMT -9
Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...
Mar 22, 2020 17:06:54 GMT -9
ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.
Mar 22, 2020 8:19:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it

lightning: and yet you are able to post here @vermin king?

Vermin King: Panic -- when you've been sick during a pandemic and have to self quarantine, and then wake up to no cable or internet
Mar 21, 2020 3:48:57 GMT -9
Parduz: ... and some upper lip mods? Perhaps?
Mar 20, 2020 14:44:52 GMT -9
marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.

Vermin King: I feel like an idiot. Didn't realize that Vanessa (Deadpool) was Inara Serra until last night. Duh
Mar 20, 2020 4:10:55 GMT -9
Vermin King: temperature is down again this AM, but lots of drainage and throat is back to being sore
Mar 20, 2020 4:09:37 GMT -9
Vermin King: I was feeling better yesterday and fever was down all day, but I realized when the show I was watching on TV was almost over, that I hadn't drank anything for 30 minutes, so I took my temperature and it was back up. highest it has been actually
