To the visitors of this page:
It is with utter sadness and a heavy heart that I must inform you that the creator of the models featured on this MySpace,
Magnus Mörck, passed away on January 17.
Publishing Civil War paper models remained one of the great joys of Magnus' life right until the very day he passed away,
and to hear of the reception his last model, the magnificent CSS Albemarle, received was of great worth to him in a time
when he was fighting the toughest battle of his life. Although he lost the battle against his brain tumour, part of his
legacy will live on through this page, and I will make certain it is maintained and that the models will remain downloadable.
It was with no self interest and without the need of any public gratitude that Magnus created these models for you to enjoy,
as he firmly instructed me to keep all his personal info private and off this site. I will go against his will regarding this
small detail, and publish his name and a few personal details so that he can receive the credit he is due, now he have passed
away beyond the humility that was characteristic in every endeavor he undertook, regarding papermodels, his academic research
in the field of Ethnology or private.
The void he leaves behind is beyond any words, but I also feel extremely thankful and privileged to have had a father that has
granted me such inspiration, guidance and love. He is mourned by his life companion, partner and colleague Helene Brembeck, his
daughter Tove, myself - his son Olof, grandson Johan and innumerable others. You will forever and always remain in our hearts Dad,
with love and immeasurable sorrow,
Magnus Mörck's son,

is heavily involved in the
industry and has written the musical tribute
to his father.
