About

Hello, I’m MrCeri, and for quite some time I was obsessed with the idea of building a miniature city. I mean it – I spent months researching the topic, investigating the materials I might use, the tools I would need, the different sources of street layout and architectural data, the various techniques used in miniature model making, etc. I’m not blessed with a great deal of artistic talent (to put it mildly!), but I was hoping to make up for it with raw enthusiasm and a RainMan-esque attention to detail.

Well, I’m no closer to my goal, but I’ve amassed a mountain of inspirational miniature city goodness along the way. Seeing as I’m unlikely to start my project any time this century I thought I might as well start sharing this research, hopefully it’ll influence someone else to get started before me!

    I always wanted to build model cities, too, and tried to do one out of Lego for a couple of years. But it was just too much work, and not very realistic.

    So I invented a Lego-like system of plastic blocks for making miniature cities. I worked on it for 15 years, and I think it came out pretty good, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. it’s called Parvia.

    And yes, I’m trying to sell it to other city modelers.

    Hi Peter, thanks for your message.

    And congratulations on your Parvia system, very impressive.

    Cheers,
    Ceri
