I was asked if I could build a microscale model of the 1. FC Köln stadium for a big fan of 1. FC Köln. Since I did not know the building, I started looking for pictures and video’s to get an idea what it looks like.
After that, how small can I build that? I started with the pages and the grid structure. I did not like the first draft with an edge length of 9 studs on the wide and 7 studs on the narrow side. Therefore, I changed the measure to 11 studs on the wide side and left the narrow side. This made the structure smoother, the ratio of the page fit better and it looked more real.
