Well; I have been told better late than never so here goes .
In the first post I spoke of ease of assembly on these things . I also stated how simple the tool list was , I think . The tool list
1 - One fine pointed medium sized pair of scissors.
2- One pair of stainless cuticle scissors.
3 - One pair of stamp or regular sized tweezers and one pair of it's very pointy cousin !
4 - One medium , or large bottle of Elmers OR Aleens craft Glue . Aleens is better than the other product but the other product Can be used , but , carefully . More so than the Aleens . ( has to do with thickness .)
5 - One well lit work area and some form of straight-edge for cutting and folding .
6 - The courage to try something totally different .
You see , in paper - modeling you cut out and assemble your parts and from those flat pieces you roll the paper into , gun barrels , masts , prop shafts , cable reels etc . So you have to do it all . As you build , if you want to paint or weather then spray craft clear , on , say your fuselage and then paint the paper and or weather it .After spraying the craft clear you can do anything , including the old firecracker thing if you are so inclined .
You know , the funny thing , I have never exploded any model or sunk it with BBs . I guess they were to " Dear " as was said in the old days . Alluding to price . I mean in plastic ,a whole dollar for a model car .You must be crazy ! That's to dear !
Paper modeling has opened up a whole era and collection of ships and planes for me .Whoda Thunk you could do dis in paper ! I built a Tirpitz in paper and was so lucky it came out really nice , a neighbor bought it from me , He liked it that much . This can be you . Simple geometric and plain shapes .Plus you learn about the really neat properties of card- stock which also can be used for scratch - building to add to your plastic or resin model .Think about it .
