Hi guys,
I’ve just found my very old model of gothic church from Gryfino – town located in north-west of Poland (sometimes it’s good to clean your basement… ). It has some wrong fits and roof of the tower is bended like pig’s tail but I’ve discussed this model with more experienced modeler who told me that this model is designed in a way that simply allows this kind of problems…
Anyway – no matter how bad it is I wanted to show you some pictures of it:

Very nicely made! If I had made it, nothing would be straight.

Thanks mate!
I still have model of Szczecin-Dąbie church (very very nice, but more complex than this one) waitng for cuttin'n'gluing. Maybe I show building it in a build-log... but not this year for sure.

Looks interesting! I like architecture!
As I read "gothic", I thought about the typical elements of this period and as you wrote, this church originally stands in Poland.
So the mid-european (western) are the ones, which I would clearly recognize.
But some of the typical elements are also in this visible: the "high" (or long) windows.

greetings...

Thank you very much!
Desing is more roman-gothic and it sure is different from late gothic architecture. As you've said some elements are similiar with later architecture - supports, windows etc.
Here's picture of tower (from Wikipedia):


I've seen this church several times (my Grandparents used to live about 60km from this town).
