An Impressive Vision of Days Long Gone By!
Is there a more spectacular highlight on a model railway layout than an imposing castle ruin, reigning high above, on a rock formation? We think not! Reason enough for being pleased that after several years, we again managed to convince the master of plaster modelling, Mr. Manfred Luft, to design us a castle ruin for the NOCH product range. This monumental ruin with a circular tower is made of the well-known NOCH Structure Hard Foam and then elaborately hand-painted.
The Castle Ruin, ref. 58605, can be connected to the Castle Ruin, ref. 58600, from the extensive NOCH product range and turned into an even bigger castle.
When thinking of plaster modelling, one thinks of »Modellbau Luft«. Manfred Luft is an absolute master of the art of plaster: over the years he has caused excitement with great castles, palaces and other hand-modelled plaster objects. In 2004 he was given the ultimate »accolade«: Since then, he is »purveyor to the court« of the »Miniatur-Wunderland« in Hamburg and created stalactite caves, castles, knight tournament and in 2016 Pompeii for the new inaugurated construction phase of Italy. Nearly everything made by hand! This is unique and will for sure be a public attraction for years to come.
By the way, Mr. Luft has already been creative for NOCH as a master modeller: The NOCH Castle Ruin (ref. 58600) was designed by him and can even be combined with the new model to construct a larger system.
