I used to love paper modeling, however, then I move on to Computer 3D modeling, becuase I can animated them.
Well the awesome thing is that 3D modeling goes hand in hand with designing paper models. You wouldn't believe how complicated you can make them.
There's even someone who made a working model of a V8 engine.
What do you design by the way? If you don't mind me asking.
What type of models are you into Datter?
Yes, paper is an amazing medium for building stuff. I did a few kits when I was still at school, but it must be really satisfying to design as well. Do you have any photos of the things that you’ve done. As I’m writing this I’m trying to imagine why I’m not making paper models and then it hit me – because I prefer working with steel. I think the fragility of paper has put me off a bit – all the things I made have deteriorated to the point where they don’t deliver with the aesthetics (and thrown out). But the steel stuff that wasn’t borrowed, stolen or sold is still around.
Have fun with the paper though; finishing a model is far more satisfying than actually having the thing you’ve made. Views?
wow i cant believe those are made out of paper..thats incredible..the tain..and in the hall of fame theres se helicopters and a couple motorcycles..those are incredible. Thats a Real crafted skill...must take frever to d them.
If you think that's amazing at the regular full scale, you have to see what a guy named TheWoodenEngraver can do.
He takes the original full size model and makes them tiny. I mean really tiny. He has a train that fits onto the first section of your index finger, made out of paper!
