    Hello all here are my first pictures to be posted on the forum, please tell me what you think!

    My first build, Aliens Dropship from the Aliens Paper model page;
    I wouldn't recommend this for a first time builder, lots of little parts, but a very good free kit.:thumb:

    more pics.....

    Here is my 98% finished M-41A Pulse Rifle from The Aliens Paper Model page. You can see a piece of one of my other hobbies right next to the magazine of the pulse rifle. Can you guess what it is? I don't know if my pics are sharp enough to identify it....

    Great builds, thanks for sharing.

    And my gues for what your other hobby: knitting chainmail, from the size of it, I would say it is a dicebag, or part of a glove.

    Kind regards

    Excellent modeling, very crisp and clear photography. Try placing a sheet of light blue or grey posterboard as a backdrop so that the focus of the shot is not distracted by the surrounding items.

    I'm a purist. Shoot me.

    Thank you....

    Hey guys thank you for the kind words.

    cdavenport-The idea of putting a piece of light blue paper behind my models is a very good idea. My next pics will definitely have that added feature.:thumb:

    Jim Lionmane & SCEtoAux-Yes it is ringmaille, it's not a dice bag, it is rolled into a ball right now. It is stainless that I wound from wire myself, 3/16" inner dia. It will eventually be a skirt for my girlfriend. That piece has about 3500 rings in it. But paper modeling is cutting into my knitting time!:cool: Any ways back to the topic at hand.:mrgreen:

    mauther-No I haven't designed for cosplay. I have looked around on the net at some Japanese cosplay sites, but I need to learn how to make molds, and learn how to lay fiberglass.:confused:

    Thanks again guys for the encouragement, any constructive criticism is welcome.

    Thanks

    Todd

    A ringmaille skirt eh? sounds fashionable. If that's your girlfriends style and your hobby, then you have a match made in heaven my friend, lol, nothing like killing to birds with one stone (or 3500 rings)

    Yes I am very lucky, she is a wonderful woman. That piece only measures about 9" by 6". So to make a skirt, I'm going to need about 18 to 20,000 rings minimum.wall1 Just like every hobby there is what amounts to "stamping license plates". Very repetetive!:confused: Thanks for the reply.
