AT-6
Posted by Richkat on Saturday, September 06, 2014 5:11 PM

Here is my build of Dave's Card Creations AT-6 Texan. It's a 1/33 scale paper model, downloaded and printed at 1/24. Like all of Dave's models the fit is first rate even when enlarged. He has a bunch of AT-6's at his site, even some air racers......Rich

That Texan looks great, Rich!

Thanks a bunch for posting the links, I've been most curious to learn something about these clever models, and how they actually go together.

No every time I start taking build photos, the photo curse strikes! Several times I  have taken pics of a build and half way through something happens, the dog eats it, or a soda gets spilled on it, or something!! But if you click the link in the post, Dave does a step by step build of a AT-6 that is VERY good to see how to build a paper model.....Rich

Just finished a styrene T-6.  Your post led me to the vendor of your model- I think I will download one of the silver US versions today.

After a couple of recent posts of paper kits, I've purchased and downloaded some from ecardmodels, and would like to try a couple, just for fun.  I'm wondering what paper is usually used to print these things out on (is photo paper good, since it would give a good finish?) and what glue is best to use to assemble them.

Cardstock paper ( Lightweight ) smooth finish, not photo finish . Glue , Aleen's- tacky glue, works best ! Hobby Lobby sells it , as well as Wal - Mart and Micheal's , Probably Miers too . T.B           If you want to color your own , use the airbrush and very thin coats of acrylic paint ,  After ,  shooting the paper with a good quality craft - clear spray .

Tankerbuilder:
I've been considering  doing something similar for a tank kit after erasing the color in the drawings.
Unfortunately, the colors used for the WWII German tank exteriors look a bit too bright for my taste.

Thanks.  I have Aleen's, I've used it on my plastic kits with good results.  I have to find some good card stock in 8-1/2"X11".

I get my cardstock at Office Max. Sometimes all their papers are on sale.  They don't have a big selection of weights, but what they have I find useful.

Thanks for the Office Max recommendation.

I was just in the local Hobby Lobby with 40 pct coupon planning to buy Aleen's glue only to find many types of Aleen's glue.

Which is best for card/ paper models?

The original Tacky Glue work for general building, but the rapid tack and the clear come in handy as well. I buy the big bottle of original and small of the others, some times you can find a assortment pack that has all 4 kinds, gives you a chance to try them out. I use a small piece of plexyglass (about 3X4") and put the glue on it then use a toothpick to apply it, you only need a very thin layer. And once the glue dries on the plex it will peel right off........Rich

Gene ;

 I just recently started downloading some models  .I am using " Georgia Pacific" 110 # - 92 Bright -8.5" x 11"  product myself .It works great .It isn't to heavy for shaping and yet is strong in areas like , set up and dried frames etc .    T.B.    I got it at , I believe , Office Depot .
