    Hello, and thanks for having me. I'm a longtime plastic kit builder, although I've done a few card models as well, and helped develop a 3D fold-up add-on for the Campaign Cartographer program called Campaign Dioramas. I'm looking forward to seeing what other modelers have done, and building some of their models. Cheers!

    Welcome SylvanKnight, paper modeling is fun. It can cause you to pull your hair out too sometimes, but it is a very interesting hobby. I think you will enjoy it immensely. Feel free to post pics of anything you have built. :)

    This was the last paper model I completed, a Starfleet Work Bee. Not very complex I know, but I have always loved large scale Trek models, and this one looks good sitting next to my traditional plastic Trek models.

    That's a nice looking WorkBee. There's another version out there with a complete interior. Nice clean looking model. The edges look dead on. No gaps, really nice! :)

    Thanks. The secret is a sharp X-Acto blade, folding over a thin metal ruler, and Aleene's Tacky Glue - no drips, no mess.
