FREE Card Model Links


Recommended Posts

Here are 2 sites I have had in my favorite folder. (you may already know about these).

 

http://www.cardfaq.org/faq/freeb.html

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.

Current Built: Zeehaen 1639, Dutch Fluit from Dutch explorer Abel J. Tasman

Many people believe that Captain J. Cook discovered Australia in 1770. They tend to forget that Dutch mariner Willem Janszoon landed on Australia’s northern coast in 1606. Cook never even sighted the coast of Western Australia).

Canon Creative park has several FREE paper model projects including some tall ships. They're not near as detailed as the Polish kits and rather toylike, but fun to build. Maybe a project to do with the kids/grandkids? Here's a link to Canon's Cutty Sark from the website:

Bob,

 

That's been the case for years now. The gentleman who originally maintained the card modeling FAQ passed away, and that site has not been updated since then.

Here is a link to Paper Shipwright, who have free downloads. And another from them of HMVS Cerberus, which was my first card model. Turned out fairly well. It comes in a printed version, which costs GBP 8.50, or a free download which you can print out yourself.

Cheers, Danny

Speaking of Paper Shipwright, I see that David has revamped his web site. It is much improved in both look and function. AND (best part) he has increased the number of free models!

That website (Paper Shipwright) has a model of CGS Canada, and it's at a reasonable scale. I am putting some serious thoughts into buying the paper kit and adapting it into a plank on bulkhead/mixed media model because I have always loved the lines of that vessel and she's so delightfully obscure.
