    Bert ... it's kinda funny. If you were not showing talent. I would say this is spam pimping a porn site. (2 posts and talk of 'real doll' at this time).

    I tip my hat to your talent. =)

    Down the road I want to get in a position (redevelope 3D skills and finese card design ability) to release some 1:6 scale paper figures of Famous WW2 Units around the world. First one for me will be close to home ... Infantryman of the West Nova Scotia Regiment 'West Novies' spoke of in the book titled 'D-Day Dodgers'. Canadians who landed at Sicily.

    Even though your Cardboard Woman has nothing to do with this project it inspires me. Wow!

    I don't consider that paper modeling. That is what I call paper "art".

    That's some beautiful work, Bert!

    That is beautiful. I agree with Amazyah - that's not a model, that's art. In fact it puts be in mind of a life size sculpture of a woman by Anthony Gormley that stands in the crypt of Winchester Cathedral.

    Stunning. I'm in awe.

    Glider project

    While looking at your site, I noticed you built a Grunau glider. Fiddler's Green has recently released a version of that glider that looked nearly identical to yours. I believe it was based off the old plans. You could have a smaller version since yours has been confiscated.

    Hallo Bert,
    Thanks for the reply, If you ever have a exhibition here in Rotterdam, or Holland, I would love to come, I'm working as a free-lance art-director/ set builder, and I have a studio in the "Duende" building in Crooswijk, so we might run into each other someday...
    Cheers, Billy
