Welcome to the pages of the Czecho-Slovak Minimodel team. What will you find here? First was the Bucobox models (papercrafts) by Ľubomír Blichár and second the FDS models by František Kováčik, and as usual, created in the 1:100 scale. But now this is a much bigger Project together with Franta, Kamil, Tom and Pitris. Everything in the background with the incredible support of Vilo. Most paper models will be available for free download in PDF format. Since these paper models are not glued only in Czech Republic (Czechia) or Slovakia, we will introduce you to a few modellers from other regions in the world. Minimodel is not a common word and Minimodel team is not just a phrase. Minimodel is a concept that is currently known all over the world. The models are built in Tasmania, Russia, Ukraine, Slovakia, Poland, Germany, France, England and as far as Argentina, USA and Canada. The Minimodel team is the second family for us, for whom we live, work, we create, not only during our free time.

From the original project of three people, our site, with the help of other members of the minimodel team, has become a new online home for a growing number of minimodels that...

Read more ...Dear friends, Frenkye - FDS - Feriot recently took stock of his long-term collaboration with the Minimodel Team and an even longer history, when he was already involved in creating his own paper models.
