I have had a passion for building scale models since I was a teenager. Over the past few years i have had the pleasure of building card models provided
graciously by the talented designers here and on the web. My main interests are Sc-Fi Spaceships and Robots and also Steam Locomotives.
I have long wished that i could design a model myself and make it freely available but i lack the skills in the software needed.
It's good to be part of the community.
Sincerely
Tom

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

Hello Tom,

Welcome Tom, you've hit the nail on the head with your interests. s far as designing, you can do such a thing. I designed many moels using nothing but Paint, and I know some designers that make fantastic models using paint. A ruler, and penicil, and piece of paper, and believe it or not, string, will help you copy pictures andd you then make the parts the old school way, trial and error. You scan your finished part template, color it with Paint. The best thing about this method as your are building parts that you know fit as you go along, you get a model that goes together very well. I've moved onto CAD, but many times I still sometimes have to take a piece of paper and just cut it, as I am having too much trouble making this piece virtually. Welcome to Zealot. :)
