    Now that looks interesting Phil, did you have anything in mind that you'd like to design from it? a samurai helmet would make an great build.

    There is a samurai helmet on yamahas site :D

    A suit of full plate out of paper! That would be sweet - then make some chain mail and then you will be ready for a couple tank treads!

    Yep, some armour, then make the weapons from Sheila's Papermodels and you'd be set.:)

    Click Downloads then go to bottom of the page for a
    Doublebladed axe
    Spiked mace
    Longsword
    Morningstar

    Some of the other stuff shown on the cover of the book looks like some good subjects, too. You could outfit yourself and go on a quest.:grin:

    Hey thanks for the tip cgutzmer, just had a look... clever use of a single part, it reminds me of those pop-out type books.. very stylish model!

    Thank you gentlemen!
    I plan many things, including all the things you mentioned...er...ummm...except the chain mail that is. lol

    Yes, the book has suits or armor, swords, knives, crossbows, you name it, if real men used them in hand-to-hand combat, it is included...

    Not sure what scale I will favor...you betcha it will be tiny!:twisted:
