Neuschwanstein 1/250 UMBUM

My new job.
Cardboard model kit 342 details. UMBUM- Умная Бумага 2008.
I built the castle in about 25 hours.
I never built castles and palaces. But this summer I went to Bavaria and saw Neuschwanstein. It’s amazing!

Sincerely, Vlad.

  1. Nice castle, very different project here at iModeler.

    Been to Neuschwanstein some years back. Was walking along the hills in the background and finally this shack comes into vision. The place that inspired Disney to his castles filled with princes and princesses. If my memory doesn´t fail me this was one of the places the Monuments men found piles of stolen art from all over Europe at the end of WW2.

  2. First time I see a cardboard model on this forum. First time I see a model of a castle too. Well built too. Thanks for posting and for contributing to the diversity of this forum.

  3. That turned out quite nicely, Vlad….something different for sure.

  4. Vielen Dank! 😉

    Sincerely, Vlad

  5. This is really nice!

  6. Being someone that has been to this fabled storybook castle, I am impressed by this one. Cardboard or not it still appears to have taken time, energy, and an understanding of what it really looks like to finish this.

    Great build! Shoot, I might even consider a cardboard build myself!!!!!

  7. Спасибо!

    Sincerely, Vlad

  8. Neuschwanstein – how a mad king of the 19th century envisaged the medieval times.
    Cool project, Vlad!

  9. Vlad, absolutely beautiful work and subject. I’ve loved castles since I first was aware of them. Imagine having enough wealth and power to do whatever you wanted! Bwahahaha! I hear they locked him up, after he did this. No artistic vision, them subjects of his.

  10. Thank you!

    Sincerey, Vlad.

  11. Vlad, outstanding work!

    I’ve had the privilege of visiting all 3 of “Loony Ludwig’s” castles a couple times and this one a couple more. He was a true visionary and he included elevators (under his dining table in case he didn’t feel like eating what was originally prepared) & telephones (very early, of course) in his designs. When you visit these works of art (there’s no other good way to describe them) and see all the 24 kt gold leaf, ivory, crystal and other precious and semi-precious decorations, not to mention the artwork, it’s easy to see how he bankrupted Bavaria. The fact that he was found face-down in a lake tells its own tale, but he sure loved “the Arts” and was a tremendous supporter of so many artists of all types – Wagner being perhaps the most famous. He was certainly an interesting person of history. They are often called “Fairy-tale” castles (especially Neuschwanstein) and understandably so.

  12. Something different! Really cool article though! I love this sort of thing.

  13. Richard, thank you!

    Sincerey, Vlad.
