I have build the Launchpad, (MLP, Crawler, FSS and RSS) from edu-craft including the Atlantis and stacks from AXM and expanded with a scratchbuild of the pipe-bridge and stairhouses behind the MLP.

Like I said in my last post on my ''Danscrew's Geminon Freighter'' thread, I start my next project. I completed the first container.

This section is for those who use Pepakura.
You can start a thread and post what you wish on instruction and technique. If you make a model and wish to distribute it through ZEALOT, then upload it to the DOWNLOAD Section and place a link to it.
Tutorials are we are looking for here, as well as design threads, which would show the technique in use, and the end results. State that the Thread is a tutorial thread and its intended purpose, and what you will be focusing on.
These threads will be really read, so expect a big following!!!
Threads should name their specific intent. Tutorials on using Pepakura, How to apply texture, etc., and all of the tricks.
Questions should be thought out, but there are no dumb questions, only dumb answers. So don't feel afraid to ask. Make sure you have read the thread first, so that you are not asking a question that has been answered.

As we all know Zealot is both growing and changing daily (New Skins, New Forums, and such).
With the added growth and the changes that were made (and others in the works), it was determined that another moderator is needed.
I would like to announce that ASC McLaren has been promoted to MODERATOR.
He has been a active and positive contributor to this forum for quite awhile and It was felt that it was time to bring him on board as a moderator.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, ASC McLaren is another person you can turn to for help (as well as the rest of our moderators: Zathros, Silveroxide, Padre, Bulldogowner, and (of course) me).
Once again CONGRATULATIONS to our new Moderator ASC McLaren!!!

The base for the tank is made of 2 empty cigarettes boxes, glued (of course, after removing that plastic foil - and also with some papers inside, to gain some weight for them). Then glued some paper on the flanks... and have there some "rivets" made out of little points of white glue.
dry rapidly, half an hour is almost enough - then a silver paint and some scratches and weathering made them look like this:
The upper side was covered with white glue, then I used some coffee grounds for the soil, grey bricks near the house wall... and some hair from an old shaving brush for the bunch grass there.
The rest of the work is well known to our modeling mates, so I took no pictures of those phases. And here it is the final result, after all ideas were on trial, most of them applied.... and this is it.
The front label is a little shorter than I wanted to be, although I measured the base, and also made it on the right length in Photoshop. I can correct this aspect, I am not yet sure if with some paint or with another printed label.
Lot of dirt and weathering out there, huh? Well, Fall Weiss was an autumnal campaign...
This is it, thank you for watching it.

This sub-forum of Design and Illustrations will consist of works by members. This will be an opportunity to discus technique, create tutorials of the different software used by the membership. It is in it's infancy which makes it fluid. Members who plant to contribute to this section are encouraged to offer ideas. Software used by members will determine what categories are in place in this subsection. The original poster would be in charge of the tone and methodology in that thread. Members who have differing methods will be asked to start a new thread with their method. This is not for competition, it is to show the many different ways of doing the same thing. Let's hear your suggestions!!

I have been tossing this one around for a while and after seeing Skoda build his, I decided to throw my hat in the ring as well. The model can be found over at the ALIENS paper craft site. http://aliens.humlak.cz/ When you get to the main site, it will be on the right side. You will have to play with site a little but it is there. When you download the plans, it will be about 1/48th scale. Go to your printers property and change the orientation to landscape. The model will now be about 1/35th scale. It will be large enough for the details and the tabs will be easier to control at this size. This is the beginning and I have about 80 photos to edit and the build is not half done yet. The teaser is, I am surprised as to how it is coming out. I use almost all of the printed plans but there is an abundance of scratch built material to play around with. And lastly, thanks Rukr for the design, I will try to do justice to your creation.

since December 2010 I'm building Jan Rukr's amazing 1:430 SULACO papermodel (http://www.sulaco.cz/), and I thought it is time to share some pictures, now that I finished the bow section (which is 1 meter long!). The antennas are all strengthend with carbon profiles, so they won't bent over time. Here we go:
Meanwhile I started the middle section. I LOVE this papermodel!
