    My journey into the galaxy of Paper Craft modeling begins. Originally From England, now in Knoxville, TN. Have always been a SciFi nut. Have always collected Star Wars and Star Trek toys. Have always been disappointed in the lack of production of SciFi vehicles. And of the ones produced, disappointed in their lack of realism. Found myself constantly trying to modify them. With the abundance of models I have found in the Paper Craft Universe and their abundance of realism, I shall go forth and fulfill the child hood dreams of having all the spaceships that were never produced, but absolutely should have been.
    Thank you all!

    Hello and welcome to Zealot.
    You have come to the right place for all things SCI-FI. We have MANY members who are into SCI-FI (Myself included). I hope that you will be able to feel at home here.
    Interestingly, I too had gotten into paper model building for a similar reason (although for me, I could not afford what was out there.

    By all means, please post all that you have made and if possible post build threads of current projects.
    Build threads are a GREAT way to show off your skills, talents, and techniques. Not only that, but build threads are a GREAT way to highlight areas that you may have problems with and need help or clarification.

    If you have any questions, comments, concerns, need help your advice, please feel free to ask and we will do what we can to help you (or at least point you in the right direction).

    Once again, welcome aboard. I hope that you enjoy yourself here.

    HI DJT, firstly, my condolences, in a football context :) I'm from Burtonwood, a little village in Cheshire. Due to the proximity to Manchester and an incident involving Spur's & Liverpool supporters when I was 5 I've been a Red Devil since the mid 80's.
