Well guys I have been off line for a while and hadn't been able to post. Figured I would post pictures of my new addition to my trailer. This is a Rolls Royce Trent 800......and yes it is all out of paper as well except the tubing, that is telephone and speaker wire. The rack it sits on was a bugger to build, all I had was two crappy pictures to look at. It is not all correct but it is close. It is also paper. I still need to do the chains and binders but been too lazy. I hope you enjoy.

P.S. The dunage is not paper, it is real wood. HAHAHAHA

In Topic: Have you wanted to try paper models?

10 April 2012 - 06:02 AM

Any tips on building paper models? I want to some on that first website posted. What do I print it out on and how do I assemble it? I cant read whatever language that is.


I am terrible at explaining how to do stuff but I will try.

"What do I print it out on" ...........You print it out on a printer. HAHAAHA sorry, was just joking around. Allot of us use 110lb cardstock, you can find it at Walmart in the office supply area.

As for assembly, I don't know how to explain that part. Usually I never read the instructions, I just look at the pictures. The main tip I can say is, When doing a bent piece you want to score the line so it will bend easier. Also a thin amount of glue is the best, I usually use a small paint brush to apply it instead of applying it straight out of the bottle. I use elmers glue. You might want to read some of these threads to help answer some of your questions and give you some tips. http://www.papermode...um/tips-tricks/
Check out allot of the other threads in the forum, I know you will be blown away at some of the builds.
