    Well I thought of starting a small thread of my own with the models I've built so far. I have a lot more to learn so, do leave a note, be it praise, constructive criticism, tips or whatever that pops into your mind that you think I should know! Thanks guys!

    Yamaha YZF R1

    First proper paper model....apart from the scratch builds I used to do when was 10 or 11 (I'm sorry, I didn't have a camera back then)

    free model from the incredible yamaha paper model page! Pretty good details and a quite realistic replica of the class topping 1 liter bike! I didn't really get the entire model together....I'm not exactly psyched about the result, which is why I'm building it again!

    Yamaha MT 01

    Second one! Like the previous one, built with 80gsm and painted to compensate fr the B&W printer!

    again, This is one model I want to build again, although I swore I won't do the mistake of taking on the MT 1 again while I was building it! As you can see, I'm not a huge fan of edge coloring...all part of the learning curve :)

    Yamaha YZF R1 Streetfighter

    A little fiddling around with the base R1 model..threw in a few mods of my own, which, if you are lucky, would see on a tuner bike...

    Aston Martin DBR 9

    Thanks to Todd, I finally managed to move from 80gsm to proper cardstock and coloured prints :) And so I pick up the DBR9; my first car build! I love this model for two reasons, I absolutely love Aston Martins and I love GT Racing! This is a complete package! :)

    Williams FW 26

    This was the first time I tried photo paper and the result was phenomenal! This model won me the second place on the Free model Comp #4 :)

    Lamborghini Murcielargo LP 640 4

    Here I messed around PS to do some tweaks of my own..Note the lights and alloys..I think I screwed up the front wheels though..Also, I added a small engine bay and a transparent engine cover which I scratch built! What do you think?

    Everyone starts out pretty crappy I guess....:) well I did (I feel I still am for the most part LOL) One of the joys is seeing yourself do a little better with every new model you work on. Can't wait to see your work around here!!!

    Viraj, Hi ! Just one of the train guys looking in. Your work is excellent, and you seem to get more skillful as you take on greater challenges. Thanks for showing what you've done. Bob C.

    I must admit I've never really heard of card models before and the thought of them didn't really appeal to me, but these models look great.
