    Here is my first build in the paper world. It's a cubecraft Tardis by CyberDrone. Thought I'd start out easy.

    Good start.:thumb: You may need to get a few tools. Get a strong sharp edged ruler. Use this to for your bends,it will make sharp corners. I recommend using UHU brand glue. It is available from Michael's craft stores, or from many online retailers. It is very tack. Wait for each section to dry thoroughly before preceding, this allows you to build the next part, using a straight edge. You may want to fold little short strips of paper and use them to secure the corners. They go on the inside, and will help close up a corner very tight.

    You are off too a good start, keep building! Have you chosen your next model? :)

    How big it is on the inside?

    The TARDIS is on my list also. I built a model rocket of one already. It's not papercraft though. Perhaps I could do a cardstock one some day. The picture below is my pumpkin I carved. [​IMG]

    YAY we have a doctor who fan base here at Zealot! I would recommend Rocketmantan's TARDIS as it is a bit more detailed than hat. Huge fan of Cyberdrone, though. Got fifty (no joke) of his cubees on a shelf. You have to resize them but:

    www.aftdownloads.co.uk has some very nice models for use with action figures. Pretty simple, yet nice for displays
