    1999 Volga Station Wagon.

    I have been inexcusably lazy in my retirement, but enjoying it thoroughly. I am almost finished with a model of a 1999 Volga 310221, that I am building for a friend, who is an American living in Russia, and who has the real version of this car.

    2011 BMW M3

    Not the kind of car I normally do, because I prefer American cars that were made before 1975. However, this one was done for a friend. Thought I'd share it before mailing it to him. First, the actual car:

    1960 Plymouth Valiant build thread.

    I plan to show my whole design process, warts and all. First, I make a raw drawing. I want a scale of about 1/2 inch to the foot, so I draw a one inch diameter circle with a circle gauge, for the wheel. Then, looking at reference pictures such as ad drawings and photos of the real car, I draw...

    1958 Studebaker Starlight Hardtop.

    I'm back on this forum, after being off from it for six years. Cardboard and colored paper, about 1/24 scale, built for a friend in Colorado, whose dad was a Studebaker dealer. This friend's aunt had a Starlight Hardtop in this color scheme.

    Resource 1956 Packard Caribbean

    This is a project that I started back in August of 2011, and until now, has been dormant since 2012. It's a cardboard and colored paper model of a 1956 Packard Caribbean hardtop, in about 1/20th scale. I'll start by showing the most recent photos. Today I finished the side "pontoons"...

    Dormant member revived.

    My name is Mark Crowel, and I've been a member of Zealot since maybe 2005 or 2006, but I haven't posted for at least a couple of years, so I rejoined. Looking forward to displaying my paper model car projects, and seeing other members' model cars.

    1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk.

    I went through a time last year (2013) when I was designing and building simple, single structure models with cardstock and construction paper. This is one of those models. The scale is roughly 1/24th.

    Here again.

    I've been away for a while. It's good to be back. 2013 was a bad year. Money troubles compounded marital problems, leading to a divorce, followed by more financial problems. Likewise, this year is off to a bumpy start. Anyway, I'm back to building again. I'm working on new projects, and...

    I designed and built this recently. It's 9 and 1/8 inches long, 3.5 inches wide, and 3.25 inches high. The components are two layers thick. There is a 110 lb. cardstock structure layer, overlaid with a white construction paper layer, on which I printed the pictorial details, then colored with...

    This link will take you to the thread that shows the entire repair process on the Toy Studebaker Collectors Club Forum. This is the finished model. Cardboard was used to fill in the badly warped roof, and was used to replace...

    1956 Packard Carribean Hardtop.

    I have started a 1956 Packard Carribean Hardtop, about 1/20th scale (5/8ths inch to the foot). By 1956, the Studebaker-Packard merger was two years old. My usual strip-and-panel construction. I have tried getting more accurate with my models, many times, but a lack of patience and proficiency...

    1950 Nash Ambassador AirFlyte, 1/20th scale.

    After a series of uncompleted models (if I am unsatisfied with the way a model is turning out, and if I would have to almost rebuild it to make it right, I'll eventually scrap it; such is the freedom of cardboard), I finally finished one. Presented here is my 1/20th scale 1950 Nash Ambassador...
