    You can always tell a cardmodellor. He is the one that the wife gives some money to and sends him to the stationary department of the store when she wants to spend too much money herself.

    Rick, Don't you mean think ABOUT the box?

    If you're burning through printer ink like never before and don't get upset when you ruin a part ("No biggie, I'll just print another..."), you might be a card modeller.

    If you got to your model club (plastic) and everyone looks at you funny as you scissors, exacto, paper and glues while they are hauling out (waaaaay too expensive) boxes filled with sprued plastic parts, resin aftermarket parts, and photoetch; you might be a paper modeller

    If, within minutes of the New Year you are still surfing the net for free downloads (got Trotskiy's new Hawk 75A4!!), you might be a cardmodeler. :D

    Cheers!

    You might be a card modeler if you have a small glass on your table where you collect the lost whiskers of your cat....

    Hey, they make great antennas...

    You might be a card modeler if:

    Your wife just shakes her head in wonder at your collection of more than 15 brands of pastes and glues together with dozens of different xacto knives and a filing cabinet filled with papers and boards collected from t-shirt packs to shoe boxes.

    every school project you help your kids with involves constructing a properly scaled, correctly colored, 3D model of whatever it is they are studying.

    You have 3 PC and they all have copies of your model downloads so you won't lose them!

    You might be a paper modeler if your wife can't get to her sewing machine because of the stack of unbuilt models awaiting scanning.

    And number 1....you buy ink cartridges by the dozen.

    HI !
    I have two things more

    You're a cardmodeller when you find that you don't really remeber how your fingers look without the glue on them

    ..When you know exactly where are the toothpicks - on your modelling table , where else ? :)

    ..when you go into Ikea, or MacDonalds, and wonder why they supply everyone with free wooden glue applicators sticks. Then, you see some STUPID people using the glue applicators to stir their coffee! Mad fools!

    I spend more time in the female beauty section of wallgreens buying tweezers, nail files, and other stuff than I do in the rest of the store! (btw I still need to try that trick that someone mentioned(sorry can't remember who) about using clear nail polish for making glass domes over wingtip lights and such.) :lol:
