    Kratz Modellbau: Everything in minature

    by sourbugger Written Dec 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was dragged by a little hand into this model shop by my two-year old, who was attracted to the display of model trains.

    I have to admit (no crashingly obvious cultural sterotype here, obviously) that it is only the Germans who could possibly put so much detail and thought into model making. Sure, we have plenty of anally-retentive wierdos who will spend nine years creating the 'Queen Mary' out of matchsticks, but nothing compares to the sheer variety of products in just a small modelmaking shop here.

    Whilst Arann stuck to trains and tractors, I was amazed to see the vast interest thre still is in military modelling from the second world war. I had always thought that there was a 'don't mention the war' attitude in German Society. There was certainly no sign of Swastikas on the various planes, tanks and soldiers, but it wasn't hard to guess !

    I'm sure there is a whole learned paper that could be written on the subject. But not here.
