Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Hohenzollern Castle Hohenzollern Castle Hohenzollern Castle was once the ancestral home of the Princes of Hohenzollern. It lies in the former principality of Hohenzollern-Hechingen on the 855 m high Zollernberg, a steep montain peak in the Swabian Alb.The first mention of a castel on this site is to be found in historical documents dating from the end of the 9th century. The later fortifications built in the 11th century were captured and destroyed by the combined troops of the Countess Henriette of Württemberg and the Swabian Reich Cities on 15th May 1423. The castle was reconstructed with the assistance of the Margrave Albert Achilles of Brandenburg. Of the original buildings only the St. Michaelis Chapel remained. It still stands today.During the Thirty Year's War Hohenzollern Castle was often the centre of ths fighting and its owners changed frequently. It was conquered by the Württemberg troops in 1634, occupied by the Bavarians in 1635, finally ravaged by the Swedes, and after 1650 occupied by the Kaiser's troops. Up until 1798 Austria had the right to station troops there in return for an annual payment of 5000 gulden. In the meantime the buildings and fortifications were in a very bad state of repair.In 1850 influenced by the sense of history which characterised the 19th century, King Friedrich-Wilhelm IV of Prussia began to rebuild the castle. His statue stands in the castle garden. Building was completed in 1867 and King Wilhelm I could accept the congratulatory speeches of the North German Reichstag in the newly constructed rooms.Our model shows the castle in its present-day form, which it has kept since its reconstruction in the 19th century.  Length: 62 cm Width: 36 cm Height: 30 cm Difficulty: 3 Number of sheets: 9 Scale: 1:250

Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Hohenschwangau Castle Hohenschwangau CastleHohenschwangau Castle is situated near the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which was built by King Ludwig II. Ludwig's father Maximilian II by chance discovered a ruin on that spot, which had been known as 'Schwanstein'. In 1833 Maximilian II commissioned his art teacher, the painter Domenico Quaglio, to reconstruct the castle ruin into a romantic castle. Originally the building was to be financed with 12,000 guilders, however the costs rose to more than 100,000 guilders. Quaglio complained frequently to Maximilian II that he was no longer able to sleep peacefully due to the rising costs. The painter was inexperienced in building construction, overexerted himself to the point of exhaustion and died shortly before the completion of the building in 1837. The royal family then used Hohenschwangau as a summer residence.Quaglio himself called his building a 'specimen of taste in the German style'. He didn't only carry out the reconstruction, he also decorated the castle with Gothic elements in order to emphasize a romantic awareness of life. The painter Moritz von Schwind equipped the interior rooms with numerous wall paintings whose topics were related to each other. The rooms were named after the topics of the wall paintings and were meant to represent a journey into the past. The outer façade was given a bright yellow coat of paint and numerous decorative additions like balconies and window ornamentations.In 1842 Maximilian II married Princess Marie of Prussia. When King Ludwig I abdicated in 1848, Maximilan II was crowned king. His son, Ludwig II, was three years old at the time. At the age of 19 he himself became King of Bavaria after his father's death. His distinctive interest in legends and myths was probably already created in his childhood through the very romantic design of Hohenschwangau Castle. This interest played an important role in the building of all of Ludw

Its inventor, Graf Ferdinand von Zeppelin, had already occupied himself with the idea of an airship in 1873, but was only able to realize it after completing his military career. A committee of experts, appointed by Emperor Wilhelm II, turned down Zeppelin's plans for the construction of a stiff airship for security reasons. And so Graf Zeppelin was forced to find other financing possibilities. In 1898 he founded a 'Joint-stock Company for the Promotion of Aeronautics' with about 800,000 marks as starting capital. The Graf contributed about half of that from his own private assets. And so finally the LZ 1 was able to be built. However, the financing of further building projects remained problematic. After the Company for the Promotion of Aeronautics had been dissolved, and several public requests for donations hadn't achieved the hoped-for success, Zeppelin once more invested his own private assets. The Württemberg King Wilhelm II supported his plans by putting the proceeds from a lottery to a value of 130,000 marks at his disposal. The Reichs Government also contributed 50,000 marks, so that a second airship, LZ 2, could be built. By now, the military administration was also interested in Zeppelin's airships. They acquired the LZ 3 for three million marks as a military airship. It was in action until 1913. When on August 4, 1908 the LZ 4 was to prove its long distance flying suitability in a 24-hour test flight, a catas

She was designed for the transatlantic service from her home port of Southampton, UK, to New York, and was named after the earlier Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth. She served as the flagship of the line from 1969 until succeeded by RMS Queen Mary 2 in 2004. Designed in Cunard's then headquarters and regional offices in Liverpool and Southampton respectively, and built in Clydebank, Scotland, she was considered the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners until the construction of the Queen Mary 2 was announced.Before she was refitted with a diesel power plant in 1986/87, QE2 was also the last oil-fired passenger steamship to cross the Atlantic in scheduled liner service. During almost forty years of service, Queen Elizabeth 2 undertook regular world cruises and latterly operated predominantly as a cruise ship, sailing out of Southampton, England. QE2 had no running mate and never ran a year-round weekly transatlantic express service to New York. QE2 did, however, continue the Cunard tradition of regular scheduled transatlantic crossings every year of her service life. QE2 w

It was destroyed by the Babylonians when they conquered Jerusalem and transported part of the population back to Babylonia. After they had returned to their homeland, they were allowed to rebuild the temple by the Persians, who were ruling at that time. This 'second temple' was completed in 515 BC. It stood in exactly the same place as Solomon's temple. Centuries later, King Herod (37-4 BC) reconstructed the temple, embellishing and enlarging the whole temple complex. Huge amounts of earth were heaped up. The enclosing walls bounded a space of 500 x 300 metres which had been constructed as splendid hypostyle halls. In these hypostyle halls religious instruction was given and trading was done. It is here that we must imagine the twelve-year-old Jesus listening attentively (Luke 2. 46), but also the tables of the moneychangers and merchants offering sacrificial animals (Mark 11. 15-17). The Roman soldiers were able to guard the temple from Fort Antonia, which was situated nearby and was somewhat higher in altitude (Acts 21. 27-40).The large square outside the temple with its forecourts was also open to non-Jews. However, only Jews were allowed to go through the Beautiful Gate into the forecourts direct

Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Pantheon Rom The Pantheon,,Marcus Agrippa, Lucii filius, consul tertium fecit.' (Built by Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, during his third consulship.) This is the inscription on the Pantheon. However, it was built under Trajan and completed under Hadrian. Why that? There was originally a Pantheon built in the same place under Agrippa. It was destroyed by fire, was rebuilt and burned down once more. Trajan then rebuilt it once again. But instead of claiming the building for himself, he had the original inscription mounted.The Romans built the Pantheon as a temple 'for all gods'. The name of the building derives from the Greek words 'pan' ('all') and 'theos' ('god'). The Pantheon in Rome is one of the oldest domed buildings in the world.The Pantheon is entered through a portico. It is divided into three aisles by its columns and thus reminds one of typical Roman temple buildings. The interior of the portico has Corinthian columns and marble panels. The main part of the building, the rotunda, is unique in Roman temple architecture. This rotunda has a diameter and a height of 43 metres each and is dominated by a dome which begins approximately half way up the building. In order to reduce the weight of the dome, a special concrete mixture was used for its construction by adding lighter filling material such as volcanic tuff and pumice stone the further up one built.The interior of the dome has a coffered ceiling, whose recesses also save weight. Up to the present day the Pantheon has the largest concrete dome without reinforcement. The only source of light is a round opening (oculus) in the centre of the domed roof. The room is completely lit by the angle of the light rays. The symbolism of the oculus has been given different meanings: on the one hand it stands for the sun, on the other hand for the connection to the stars.The 'temple for all gods' shared the fate of many magnificent buildings in Ancient Rom

They act strangely with the two-part front end that puts the driver virtually on the hood. Theoldest models date back to the fifties and have been specifically designed and built for London Transport. Different versions were used, of which now mainly the RML is left, which differsby eight additional seats from the RM. The recorder model corresponds to this Routemaster RML, which was built until 1965. Nearly 600 of the late nineties were modernized and given newmotors. In other major cities almost unthinkable - in these buses Conductors are still used. If that is no longer possible, the days of these buses will be numbered and a piece of London's independence will be lost.

More than half of the approx. 30 legions was stationed between the estuaries of the Rhine and the Danube along the northern frontier of the Empire between Rheinbrohl (near Bonn) and Kelheim on the Danube was considered to be exceptionally endangered. For that reason fortifications were constructed from 85 AD to protect this area - the so-called Limes. The older parts of the Limes consisted of a palisade with a ditch and ramparts. In other places a wall which was almost 3 m high and 1 m wide protected the border.Along the 548 km-long Upper-Germanic-Raetian Limes there were many watchtowers. The older wooden towers were replaced by stone watchtowers in the middle of the 2nd century AD. The remains of their foundation can frequently still be seen and can be visited. These excavations and reliefs on the Trajan Column in Rome nowadays give one a reasonably original reconstruction of the stone forts. One example of a reconstructed Limes watchtower can be seen in the Saalburg near Frankfurt. The tower platform was reached by ladders inside the tower, and these could be quickly raised in the case of an attack.In course of time settlements sprung up near the watchtowers. Many places names still remind one of their Roman origins. A similar fortified frontier like the Limes was built in Britain - Hadrian''''s Wall - where Emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD) cordoned off the north of the country.

When the troops were moving, they lived in marching camps which could be set up and taken down again at any time during a campaign. In occupied areas permanent camps were erected, in order to secure the borders of the Roman Empire. In the permanent camps tents were replaced by buildings made of wood or stone. Permanent camps were normally rectangular and surrounded by a trench and a stone wall. In some cases the walls were filled with soil and covered with wooden boards. The Schreiber model complies with a small fort, which includes barracks and buildings for supplies and maintenance. Small forts were designed for auxiliary troops.In the large forts along the Limes, the fortified border of the Roman Empire in present Germany, normally 500 auxiliary soldiers were stationed. The camp consisted of the commanders house, accommodation for the officers and the barracks for the soldiers. Together with the roads and the principia as the administrative building in the centre, they already formed a small town.Apart from a military hospital and a prison, large permanent camps also had storehouses, stables and workshops, for the soldiers had to take care of their own living. Around the camps they constructed wells, water pipes and roads. Merchants and craftsmen settled near the camps in order to do business with the Romans. The soldiers were also provided with groceries by the surrounding estates.

Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Wind Turbine Wind PowerIt is sufficiently well-known that energy supply is one of the fundamental questions of our time, and it has become even more the main focus of interest through the reactor catastrophes of Chernobyl and Fukushima. Where is the way out between the obviously dangerous atomic energy and coal and oil energy, which not only consume our resources but are also harmful to the environment? It is agreed that a way out can only lie in a practical combination of energy sources. Wind power is one of the supporting pillars, as there is an almost unlimited availability of wind power, which could theoretically cover the whole energy demand on earth. With it, countries lacking in raw materials can make themselves more independent from imports, because the principle is relatively simple: the wind drives a rotor made of steel and glass fibre reinforced plastic, which is assembled at the top of a high mast. Via a shaft, the rotor drives the current generator.However, the disadvantage of wind power is the fact that it is not constantly available. In order to solve the problem, offshore wind farms are installed, that means wind power plants at sea, where the wind blows more constantly, birds are not disturbed and landscapes are not interfered with.Such wind power plants are, however, also being further developed on land: the rotors run with less noise, light reflections are minimized by using matt paint. In addition, of course, a minimum distance from residential areas and breeding and nesting areas for birds should be observed.The problem that electricity from wind power cannot be made sufficiently available at any time is shared, for example, with photovoltaic, that is, electricity created by sunlight. But there are solutions in sight: even today there are times when so much electricity is generated that the electricity grid has not the capacity for it. As a consequence individual wind power plants have
