Hi, My name is Ward. I was very pleased to find this forum last week as I have just started my interest in paper modeling. I have done some paper models in the past, mostly buildings for wargames and a couple of fun things for my son's train set when he was little. I have decided to try paper modeling because of the amount of travel I do for work. I did do some science fiction writing for a while (and did publish a book), but I need a break from all that. I have always loved modeling and paper seemed to be a great media for me to travel around with. TSA probably won't get excited about some paper and a little white glue as long as I keep the Xacto blades in the checked bags. My other hobby of casting my own tin soldiers is not so portable. I have to admit that so far I am a disaster at paper modeling. I have been working on some of the free models available out on the web for practice. It is a good thing that paper, even card stock is relatively cheap. I hope to find support and direction here as I attempt to learn this art. I have average to decent skills with computer graphics programs and I intend to contribute as best I can. My interest is probably focused on the military with a specific interest in WWI aircraft. I am currently working on a Nieuport 17 model (I am on the third printing, ugh!) and I am planning on adding the support wires in silver thread, when and if I complete the model. This is a great site and I am glad I found it.
