I came here to check out "papercraft" models. I've never heard of this before seeing an amazing lifelike Battlestar Galactica on youtube. My only modeling experience is building wooden tall ships. I used a kit, but it still felt like creative expression because you end up warping all the straight planks into all the nice curvy shapes that make those old vessels so nice to see. My other hobby is painting miniatures. I don't know if that's off-topic in this forum, since I didn't make the miniatures - just made them "pop." I'm not sure how to really get started here. Having never worked in paper before, I don't think I could contribute much for some time. I was hoping to download a "pattern" to try out, but the site seems to think I'm a spambot. Anyway, I'm impressed just looking at some of the finished model pics that people have posted. Amazing job all!
