    Well, I'm almost finished with my latest design, so I guess it's time I started on another design. This time, it's the UNSC In Amber Clad from Halo 2. From what I have so far, it seems like it won't be so hako-like as the rest of the fleet I already have.
    I'll post build pics and such as the build progresses.

    lol, thank you, Snake Eyes :mrgreen:

    Well, the prototype design is pretty much finished--all that's left is building it and doing some cleanup. I will most likely do a step-by-step build report.

    what's going on so far

    Here are pics of the prototype sheets. For the record, I would give a screenshot if I wasn't too lazy to post it on a photo site and upload it via that site.

    Test build part 1

    It seems nice, although there are some missing tabs...

    "For a brick, he flew pretty good!"
    (Ok, I know the Sarge was talking about the Chief colliding WITH the In Amber Clad, but you know what I mean!)
    I like it! Small, simple, and accurate. Well done!

    rofl, good one! Except, the model flies worse than a brick! XD

    Here is another picture of the prototype, this time next to the 1.5 foot ling Pillar of Autumn (thread here: http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=168262). The frigate is actually to scale with the PoA!

    holy good lord almighty that pillar of autumn is one serious stack of paper!!! the amber clad is amazing as well. how do you guys design your own models? sorry i'm a noob to the paper modeling set. and as such so far have been relegated to putting together others works. but i would love to learn how to design my own.

    Lol, thank you for your compliments. I'm glad you want to design Card Models, for it is a very rewarding experience. My method is quite simple: I take a side view of my subject, and i mentally divide the subject into various parts. Once I have divided, them, I unfold them mentally, or I use some calculations, And there ya go! Here's a website to help you design models (the guy's tutorial helped me more than what the actual guy told me sign1):https://www.fiddlersgreen.net/tutorials/
    By the way, the rest of the halo ships series as well as the large pillar of Autumn are in the downloads section.
