    That's a good write up on the process. The details of deriving a surface with good detail remains to be discovered by the reader. I developed a proprietary process that rivals injected molded plastic in detail but haven't decided to do anything with it as the marketability of cast paper models is dubious if non-existent.

    I am planning on a WWII diorama in 1/72 scale with figures but I want the entire thing to be made from paper, I could really use your method.

    EDIT= BTW paper cast models would be a heck of a lot cheaper and you could just cover em' with glue to make them waterproof or whetever.

    Gil: I would not mind giving it a shot, either.
    It would seem to have a lot of applications for the museum diorama/taxidermy/FISHCARVING community (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more....)
