  1. Kingfisher - card - 1:1

    I promised a restart on the kingfisher-model. Today, I finally managed to do some work on it. It is a model designed by Johan Scherft, and the template is downloadable from his site. There is a nice you-tube video, showing how it should be done (life is not so easy as the vid suggests, but still, it is not a very complicated model with lots of tiny fiddly bits.) Time for some pics. First the template. This is all there is. (Actually, there is also a paper branche template. Did not download that for the moment) The head: template after cutting (swan morton is very usefull, although it can be done with small scissors) and all the longitudinal tabs and those above the eyes are glued. next - while the head was drying - the tail, from two parts And now for the major part: the body paper is funny stuff: I printed the bird last week, and it was very dry and rather cold here last week. After cutting, the paper startedto curl upwards.... no bug deal, as it is just normal 80 grams officepaper, the paper bends easily back when glueing. And then the process of glueing starts: tab by tab, starting with the small ones, and working towards the larger ones. Here a pic of how the bird is right now. Not too stressfull so far, just two and a half hours of fun. I hope to continue tomorrow. Jan
  2. Wren - card -1:1

    Hi, as a break (needed something to do while the glue of my other models is setting, I downloaded a cardmodel of a bird, a wren to be exact. (Www.johanscherft.nl). rather fun to build, and not difficult at all. The result is rather convincing: a life size bird, 16 parts, just from your own printer. I will just show the pics, no stiry needed (I think) the 'kit'. I printed it on 120 grams paper, 80 is better (as it is thiner, the edge problem is smaller, and it will curve more easily. The head: lines on my cutting mat are 1 cm apart the hull in variou stages of forming Start of the tail. The 5 additional feathers are still drying under some weight. Two wings. Flat and curved. There is a beak (somewhere on the grond now, but I willretreive it ) and two legs still to be cutted. Final assamblage will be tomorrow (I think) picture will follow for the gallery (untill the moderators remove it, as a wren is not a ship at all) Jan
  3. Talented young modeler

    Take a look at this model. It's card. And the author is 13 years old.
  4. FREE Card Model Links

    Here are 2 sites I have had in my favorite folder. (you may already know about these). http://www.cardfaq.org/faq/freeb.html http://www.paper-replika.com/ (dead link) The only card model I have ever done was a clock kit that was from a Canadian manufacturer. It worked but it was slow. Meaning it lost 5 minutes every day. Marc
  5. Have you ever browsed through your favorite build to see what the full build looks like at the present time? Have you ever wondered what else is being built on MSW 2.0, it may be a kit, scratch, R/C, card or plastic, or any other material, including digital reconstruction. I am inviting all members to post a latest photo of their build (side elevation)and a link to that build, so everyone can see what it looks like, and give others an idea of what else is going on. I am not trying to create a multitude of build logs under one topic, just photo’s so we can all see what is going on. This will possibly help others in deciding on what to build next Anyone interested?
