Construction Techniques For Paper Models : General Instructions

Construction Techniques For Paper Models : General Instructions

Category : Paper Models

1. If you are a beginner at paper model construction, you must understand that you need to work very slowly, patiently, neatly, and CAREFULLY. This is especially true of constructing a hull. For example, when cutting a piece to fit to another, you must pare it down cautiously--a little at a time. (Trying to patch a piece back up to required size is arduous and tacky work.) With practice, your speed will improve. Once the first model is constructed and understood, mass production--doing one function or part at a time for many ships of the same class--can greatly reduce the per- model productio... Read more

Scale Modeling in Paper

Scale Modeling in Paper

Category : Paper Models

Card Modeling or Paper Modeling is the art of creating scale models with paper. Models are built up from appropriately colored, cut, and folded pieces of paper, usually a stiff cardstock. Many models are available as kits, with pre-printed pieces to be cut out and assembled by the modeler. It's also possible to build entirely from scratch. Anything can be modeled in paper, but the most common subjects are buildings and vehicles. Buildings are a very popular subject and well suited to the medium. Kits are available of many famous buildings and castles. There are also many kits available in comm... Read more

Paper has been used in modeling since its invention thousands of years ago, but those ancient modelers probably did not use paper for the construction of entire paper models. The roots of the modern paper model go back to 15th century Europe, where the printing technology and the paper came together. These first models were very simple rectangular pictures, to be cut out and glued to wooden blocks as toys or educational aids. At first, religious themes predominated, but over the next several centuries, they evolved to cover a broader set of topics. Printing technology took a step forward in 1... Read more

Cutting And Folding Parts Step 2 shows how to make a suitable cutting pad. Even the back of a paper tablet will work. You need a have a flat, smooth surface to cut and assemble on. And, make sure it's thick enough so you don't cut through and ruin your work table. We generally use on one of the new self-healing 11x17 inch cutting mats. Use a model knife, or even a small disposable type, with a triangular blade for cutting out the parts. If available, use the "scalpel" type knife as it has a thin blade. Small scissors are useful for cutting curves, like wing tips. A "straight" metal straight ed... Read more

By: Philip Koopman, Sr. What You'll Need For your models, you'll need a few 8-1/2" x 11" sheets of white, 67-pound Vellum Bristol (110 gsm - grams per square meters - see http://www.paperandfilm.com/gsmtopoundscale.aspx ). Most office supply stores carry it. One brand is Wausau Paper's Exact® Vellum Bristol. If you can't find the Vellum Bristol, use smooth paper from an artist's pad that's about the thickness of a post card. Or, try your local print shop and ask for Post Card stock. For instruction booklets, the regular paper you use in your printer is fine. General Printing Information The F... Read more

A brief history of paper models

Category : Paper Models

By: Philip Koopman, Sr. Paper models of all types are popular in many countries. Called Paper-Card Modeling in Europe, it spans the range from simple folded-paper darts, to complex three-dimensional mod-els of airplanes, ships and buildings. During WWII, all materials were in short supply. Those that were available had restricted use. Obviously, toys were at the bottom of the list. These restrictions ruled out metal toys - wood and paper were about all that was available. The U.S. toymakers switched to toys and games that used paper and other nonstrategic materials. Even here, shortages of pri... Read more

Paper versus Plastic Models - Pros and Cons of Cardstock Paper Models

Category : Paper Models

Advantages: Being constructed of sheet-type material -- like the original ships -- the models can look more realistic than models cast by filling molds. I can make these models whenever I want ... at whatever scale. (1:1250 seems to be the smallest practical scale. 1:300, for destroyers, is the largest scale I have attempted so far.) Their materials are inexpensive in comparison to plastic and metal model ships. (A 5-inch -- 12.7cm -- long 1:700 injection-molded plastic kit of an American destroyer escort now sells for as much as $30.00. Resin kits are even more expensive and can sometimes be ... Read more
