Medieval Blacksmith Diorama

This was another vintage paper model from the old Danish magazine from the 1920s. It looks so great finished and not very hard to put together!

I edited the original scans to brighten up the colors and make it easier to print out =>> Template <<=
A huge thanks to Esben Rasmussen over on flickr for providing scans! If you want more vintage patterns please check out his flickr page.

-printing paper (200gsm)
-scissors, craft knife
-black cardboard paper
-paper glue or white wood glue
-black marker
-optionally some tweezers

Please follow my video. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks for watching!

    Hi there,
    where can I find the template of this beautiful vintage medieval castle paper model (Romantisk Ridderborg) for downloading?
    I tried several times the link shown in papermau but without success.
    Instead the video (how to build) is starting every time!
    Would be happy to receive a download-link which is working.
    Best regards

      Heya! I can see the issue the link that takes you to youtube video, if you look at the description there is a link to my google drive where the pdf is. I think at the time I made the video I was in a time pinch and forgot to make a subpage on my website…(link to google drive https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iCZMtG-JvQHQoY7MJI8LzGOtUmaAMsF8/view)

    miniature paper awesomeness! great job. I think this ( the blacksmith, mill, etc.) are part of a larger set of paper models ( possibly French from the 1920-30’s. Anyway, might you be adding more in the near future? All the best to you…

    hi! the language in the template isn’t dutch but scandinavian. danish maybe?
    also how would one go about designing one of these?

      Good catch I think I actually mistyped, the magazine is Danish! Thanks for the correction! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Familie_Journalen
      As for making your own I tend to use sketchup 3d program and pepakura =)
