$2.50

Banbury Cross

Thumbnail
Of the three, the High Cross and was regarded as one of the chief architectural features of the town at that time. At the end of the 16th Century, Banbury acquired a reputation for Puritanism. The Puritans disliked all religious images and any thing which resembled paganism (Fun time over!). In 1598 they demolished the towns maypole and by 1601 had destroyed the high cross. By 1621 all three crosses had disappeared.
$2.50

Bank-town

Thumbnail
This little model was designed for two reasons....one so even the littlest kid (or hopeless adult) could do a model. They don't get any easier to assemble than this.
$2.50

Bank-village

This model was the third Fiddlers Green model and is a model that I've been meaning to 'up-date' for years. We're sold out of the hardcopy now and, surprisingly, over the years it's always been one of our best sellers.
$2.50

Big Ben Tower

Thumbnail
Big Ben is actually the name of the huge bell in the clock of the St. Stephen's Tower. When Parliament is sitting at night, a light shines above the clock for all to see.
$2.00

Blue Church

Thumbnail
This is a very early Fiddlers Green model, probably about number 5 out of close to two hundred in all. Nicely laid out as a cardstock model, lovely color, and pure fantasy.
$3.95

Thumbnail
This fine building lends itself perfectly to paper modeling! There's a lot to the model and it's pretty much easily fitted into our A5 format.
$3.00

$2.50

Cart Shed and Cart

Thumbnail
Pretty basic, actually. This little building is one that nobody really notices but will miss if it's not there. Locate it over on the edge of your layout under a couple of old crusty trees. Cut and fold the doors open to get a little ventilation and let the chickens and pigs out.
$3.00

Co-Op Store

Thumbnail
Every mining town had a co-op. The one stop shop where you could buy just about anything. This actual building lives at Beamish Open Air Museum.

$2.50

Although this little cottage actually exists along the road in Lower Heyford, Oxfordshire, it's so typical of the main building first and then later, an add-on to either side.

$2.95

Fish and Chips

Thumbnail
This model is like so many 'over there' but isn't modelled after any one special chip shop. We figured out early on how to get the nice 'swayback' roof effect on our models.
$3.95

Flower Shop

Thumbnail
This was drawn by a helper in 1987 named Bill who had a special knack of doing fantastic house models. He couldn't leave his government job, however, to work for artist's wages and what a loss it was for Fiddlers Green and the art world.
$3.50

Foredown Tower

Thumbnail
Built in 1909 as a water tower it is now converted into a tourist center in Portslade, East Sussex, England. As you can see it looks quite well as a brick and slate industrial building.
$2.50

Gable House

Thumbnail
The crow-steps or Corbie steps are as functional as they are pretty keeping the rain and weather out where the roof meets the wall. This style of gabling became popular throughout Europe during the renaissance.
$3.00

Gothic Church

Thumbnail
In the heart of the English Cotswolds, in an enchanted village named Snowshill, lives this little church and this is a very good copy of it indeed.
$2.50

Half Timber House

Thumbnail
Probably the most charming thing about England (my Brit friends will laugh), are the wonderful flower gardens and these half timber houses. They are as old as dirt and keep on living century after century. Maybe the fact that you British people spend so much effort, money, and love on them has something to do with their longevity.
$3.00

Haunted House

Thumbnail
Who sez everything has to be serious in the paper model business? This is one of the FG models that was made just for fun and sells very well indeed especially, of course, around Halloween.The design was inspired by the tower in the movie 'Psycho'.
$2.50

Hideaway

You probably know about the David Winter range of hot selling hand painted houses. His success, in no small way, influenced our decision to go into these 'hot selling' paper houses.
$2.50

Honey Pot Cottage

Thumbnail
This little gem had been with us for quite a while and never really sold well until we named it "Honey Pot". Truth be known, it's really a cottage that lives on the magical Isle of Wight.
$3.00

Irish Round Tower

Thumbnail
Irish round towers are early medieval stone towers of a type found mainly in Ireland, with two in Scotland and one on the Isle of Man. Though there is no certain agreement as to their purpose, it is thought they were principally bell towers, places of refuge, or a combination of these. Generally found in the vicinity of a church or monastery, the door of the tower faces the west doorway of the church. In this way it has been possible to determine without excavation the approximate site of lost churches, where the tower still exists.
$3.00

Thumbnail
This is a great model for a school project. Use the Fiddlers Green models as patterns to do larger huts. Photocopy, color and build any number of them.

This boat can be spotted on the Cornish coast UK. To be precise, in the harbor of Penzance. (note the 'PZ' on the hull?) Colorful and easy to build and in includes a few lobster pots.

Lockeepers House

Thumbnail
After walking for a couple hours over some pretty rough paths along the Oxfordshire canal one Sunday afternoon, I noticed a real serious storm moving in from the west.About then a lockeepers cottage became visible through the trees a little distance up the canal and I knew I was safe because there would be a lock and there you can easily cross the canal.
$3.00

Long House & Barn

$3.00

Mission Church

Thumbnail
We've done quite a few churches in the Fiddlers Green series. This one, is definitely a conversation piece and deserving of a location in your model layout. this one lives at Blists Hill Open Air Museum, Telford, Shropshire, England.
$2.50

Mud Cottage

Thumbnail
These houses are actually made out of mud. Water is mixed with dirt and most often a binder of horse hair or straw and then molded in wooden frames then left out to dry. You can be sure that the roof overhang is kept in good repair because that's all that protects the building!
$2.50

News Agt -Chemist

Thumbnail
This is really two shops, as you can see from the photo, and included with the model, is a market cross which was awarded to towns that were large and wealthy enough to qualify as market towns. The steps round the cross was used to display goods. Look for them in town squares.
$2.50

Norman Castle

Thumbnail
The Normans were the people who gave their name to Normandy, a region in northern France. They descended from Viking conquerors of the territory and the native population of mostly Frankish and Gallo-Roman stock. Their identity emerged initially in the first half of the tenth century, and gradually evolved over succeeding centuries until they disappeared as an ethnic group in the early thirteenth century. The name "Normans" derives from "Northmen" or "Norsemen", after the Vikings from Scandinavia who founded Normandy.
$3.00

Oast House

Thumbnail
Where ever hops grow, you'll find these Oast Houses with large drying ovens and little wind directed sails at the top venting out the heat. Lately, though, many have been converted into houses so there's another reason to consider an Oast House for your model layout.

$1.00

This is a complete re-design. Easy to put together. Reduce to any size and add a few to your model railroad layout. Two new models were added 10/11, a Vermont Privy, and a very crooked Outhouse. Earlier version is now obsolete but still included in folder. Can't have too many privies!!

$2.50

Service Station

Thumbnail
This one's shown in N scale and I think it works pretty well. It's more or less NOT one of your modern style stations. How long has it been since anyone called them 'Service Stations"?
$3.00

Shakespeare's B'place

Thumbnail
The house itself is relatively simple, but for the late 16th century it would have been considered quite a substantial dwelling. John Shakespeare, William's father, was a glove maker and wool dealer, and the house was originally divided in two parts to allow him to carry out his business from the same premises.
$2.50

Shelter Shed

Thumbnail
A great building for your farm set up or along the edge of a field with some cows stuffed into it. With just a little effort, you could replace the printed frame work with actual square toothpicks(or even little bits of twigs).

$2.50

$3.00
