    Deckape,

    These paper kits you put together are incredible! I am amazed they are not plastic.

    Couple questions:
    1. How would you compare the skill requirement compared to a plastic kit?
    2. Where do you get them? I've googled my butt off, but can't seem to find any of the quality that you have. Are yours scratch?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Thanks for your reply, Card models have been around for centurys, once they were very popular here in the USA until the event of plastic and balsawood kits. Then card modeling has vanished and still being used in all of Europe even to today.Compared to plastic kits they have their own method of construction, most kits are in Polish but the directions are some in english by line codes. The secret of papermodeling is the printing without porinting the kit would be taken away fvrom its Beauty looking to bland I build them scratch as well useing the same method of construction as card kit designs in general. You find card kits on the internet, by googleing model kartonwoy downloads, there are hbundreds of kits you can download if you have orinter friendly download it off your computor once you make your downloads. By doing this it will cost you nothing. there are also two other scources to get card models Paper Model Store and ECardmodels.com Shop they have a vast selection of card kits. I like card kits for two reasons First is that I can efford plastic anymore to expensive. same with balsawood kits. with the economy today these are known as a luxery hobby for those who can efford them almost like the seperation of wealth. the pyrimid I am at the base and the plastic fellows are at the top.second reason is that they are far cheaper then that of plastic 90 percent of them are free.and they build just as good as plastic. I have a vast collection of plastic kits I built through out the the decades I will post some later here. Jon I hoped I answered your question Not trying to shove paper down everyones throat I like paper kits.

    Boats,

    I'm going to give one a try, at 40 I'd like to think I'm a young buck still, but I want to try as much as possible before my days are done.

    You do a fantastic job on these kits and I didn't understand at first that they were card stock until after you had posted a few.

    Thank you,

    Jon
