I have been building wooden ship models since the early 80's and found paper modeling a few years ago.  I am still amazed with what can be accomplished using 2 dimensional paper to construct 3 dimensional models.  A few things stand out about building paper models vs wooden models in my mind.  First is the time it takes to complete a model, wood = years, paper = days.  Second is that with the exception of edge coloring, the finish is already there, and with some skills it can even be changed.  Last is the ability to re-print parts or pages if necessary.  Because of the last item I am more willing to make modifications while building because I know the only thing I will have lost by attempting something other than what the designer had in mind, is some time, paper, and ink.  I do not bring a lot of experience to the forum, but it is comforting to know there is an abundance of experience throughout the forum to provide me with council and advice.

I'm a 75 year old retiree and my other hobby is golf.  I'm at the stage with my golf game where my body does not always want to cooperate, but I still try to get out there and hit the ball a few times a week. It appears as if my body is much more adept to paper modeling than golf at this stage of my life.

I look forward to future exchanges.

There are a few easy steps to sign up.
They include filling out your account information,
answering a couple of security questions
and getting your membership approved.

Please understand, in an effort to combat the growing threat of forum spammers
the security measures are necessary to keep our boards free of annoying junk posts.

The first security question you will need to answer is an image capture...just look at the
image and type in the text/numbers you see.  You can refresh for a new capture if you
have any difficulties seeing the image.

The second security question is a simple text based question...just read it and answer it.

Your Member account will still require Administrator approval...this is as a result of recent
increased spam threats. Once we feel the number of spam accounts is under control, this
security measure will be removed.

Please be patient, it is still a fairly simple signup process...but the security measures are in
place to guaranty our members a better experience here.
Thanks

Outstanding!  And welcome to the forum.  I often take projects to my folks (at least during winter months), and Dad is watching a game, Mom reading and me working on a project.  It's great to be doing separate things together.

Just discovered this great hobby.
I'm an ex plastic builder, but didn't touch anything in years.
When I discovered this paper modeling......WOW! This is great.

When I was doing plastic....I needed to be down in the basement with the glues, dremel, airbrush, paint booth, etc.

This something I can do sitting at the table...my son studying on one side, wife reading on the other.

I've build the Robby the CubeBot as my first project.

Can't wait to build more.

Welcome to the forum.  I need to get some new photos for Dave's soon-to-be released set.  Space program fits right in.
