Card Model Up Date

During our recent move, several of my card models were destroyed and so I have only photographs to remember them by.  Two models that I will miss the most are the two models I am presenting here.  The first model, a Roman Centurion, is from a series done in a Czech Magazine called ABC.  The magazine is published twice a month designed for young readers and each issue comes with one or two card models to cut-out and assemble.  Some of the models can be very complex and may take several issues for the entire model to be complete. I miss not receiving the magazine any longer; but like most things, the price including postage gets so high that most people outside the Czech Republic can no longer afford to subscribe.
The second model, the USAF Parasite Fighter, was designed to be carried under each wing of a B-36 or similar like aircraft. I lost the manufacturers name and place where I purchased the model and can only wish someone reading this might remember where it came from so that I could be able to buy the kit again.

Sadly, you hoped to find where you can get your card models. By the way, why was several of your card models destroyed? Hopefully, you could subscribe the magazine and be able to buy the kit again.

Wow, a statue of the Roman soldier is very cute and very unique. I really want to have a statue like this for a collection of my sculptures in my room. And by the way, why your card could be ruined? How could this happen? My advice, you can buy the magazine and assemble the cards back.
