    A new category perhaps! I've seen some wood builds on the site but not sure I've ever seen paper. Do you work from pre-made templates or do you make your own? I've downloaded a template from a Japanese site for an Acura NSX GT3 which I thought might be possible to realize in aluminum flashing which is foldable and can be cut with ordinary scissors, but I've got my hands full with my current build and not much time to work on it these days. Looking forward to seeing your work.

    Hello Huub!

    I have seen a some very well made models in paper, a few that are enormous! (A local museum has two that are cross-sections of large ocean liners with every detail shown of both the interior and exterior, they are about 8 feet long!! And many architectural models, and trains and armor. Airplanes can be done and space-craft, real and fictional.

    I will look forward to seeing your work!

    Please post some pictures!

    Hello Huub!

    I've just sent away for what I think is a paper model of a Delage D8, one of my favorite cars, and I might be asking for help? -A very long, long time ago my first attempt at scratch-building was to make a paper lay-up over a waxed toy car body. I was eight or nine at the time and got lucky! The lay-up was typing paper and wood glue, over a toy that I waxed with furniture wax! The idea was not my own, but I got it to work. (I didn't know what I was doing) I only made the shell at the time and it was squashed in an unfortunate sibling battle!

    Are you working on anything currently?

    Thank you for posting! -Don

    Hello Huub

    Very impressive!!

    -What I thought I was buying turned out to be reference material. But? Maybe I could work in paper? I am concerned with its longevity
    but it is probably better than some plastics?

    You should post your work here as well! I can see the advantages of paper, so little time!

    Hello Huub!

    I remembered earlier today that I have a paper model of the Voisin C6, the "Laboratoire" which is a perfect subject for a paper model. Maybe I can use the pattern to make a trio of models? paper, plastic, and brass? Each material has it own advantages and it might be fun?

    Do I have to be a purist? Paper tires? Is paper mache' allowed? Can I use a lathe, or is it strictly hand tools only?

    Hello Huub! Yes that is the model! I am thinking to scale it up to 1/12th scale. Paper and cardboard for one, and styrene New Member , ABS, and acrylic New Member plastics for a second, and then "Old School" wood clad with brass. All three to be painted pale blue. -We'll see?

    Thank you for your opinion. Tomorrow I'll try to pick up some supplies. Neutral Ph paper and cardboard, a variety of glues, . . .
