This idea has some serious holes in it.

I see a paper modeling group on facebook, but no holes. What do you mean? The airplane on the front page? If you do, then yes, that is cool! ;)

I meant the method they used to join pieces. They used a hole punch on card stock, then used the circles to join pieces.

Give me a break. I just woke up when I posted that and that’s the best pun I could think of.

This link requires approval to see. Please don't post links like that. You could always take a screen shot of the pic and upload it as a .jpeg. I just signed in and could not see the picture either. I hate Facebook or whatever they're calling themselves now. I just lost 4 minutes of my life I'll never gt back. :sadno:

These are usually done and called joining strips. They have the great advantage of keeping the pieces to be joined on the same plane, and you end up with a great mating of surfaces. I usually cut out pieces to fit the exact shape I need. This is quick and clean though and great for cylinders, and many other surfaces that need to be joined. It's 100% better than tabs, which make for really bad connections, unless you bend them far in and use a lot of glue. This method allows dry fitting, and seeing how the connection will look after glued. Great idea! :)

Thanks DJPinter for taking the time to put the pictures here. :)
