    AbsoluteSciFi: Some of My Old Paper Models

    I had a great job right out of college were I had a little too much time on my hands...

    All these models are made using "chip board" which at my job at a print shop was plentiful. I used nothing other than a slide rule, triangle, x-acto, and Elmer's glue to put them together. I later painted them with spray paint and detailed them.

    Here is my very first paper model, made out of illustration board and Strathmore Bristol board.

    It was never really finished, due to the amount of things I learned while making it. I quickly moved up to better things, and started to really get into some higher techniques just from having blundered into things. I made another bigger castle, for one, and I quickly found that the project was too ambitious. The time it took me to make the first incomplete one was considerable, the second was twice as detailed, and never really made it past the tower stage. The battlements take the most time and there were an impossible amount.

    Nice Post.

    The last one looks like a real thoughtful design.
    Get it finished and posts back to us.

    I can picture soldiers marching the battlements.

    Thanks
