Al, your first panel was amazing. I can only shake my head in wonderment that you are so quickly taking another such project. Hats off to you, sir!

Sonia Clock cont.....

PMs - Happy New year!!!

Thanks for the encouragement guys, I'm glad you like this style of paper modeling, I hope it catches on and other guys give it a go. I have had a number of Pers Messages asking for further details and other interesting ideas, I will assist where I can.

As for the clock. I had a bash at her this evening. As you may remember, the centre section required painting and the bezel face required knurling around the edge. on my last clock I used plastic packaging. I had a thought and made my own knurling or corrugation as I think its called out of paper.

I cut a piece of paper the required thickness:



I next utilised the cap of my fluorescent paint as a press:





Once pressed to the cap with a tooth pick the paper looked like this:



This I then stuck to the upper clock face bezel:



Looks quite effective:



I next painted the bezel and the centre section black:



I placed the clock hands and second hand on the face then attached the bezel,



If all goes well, I should be able to construct the brass winder/adjuster tomorrow (finishing the clock before returning back to work).

Enjoy

Clock Continue

PMs

OK, Ive just complete the Sonia, R Aeronautica Clock.

The final piece of the clock is the brass adjuster/winder. This is found at the bottom of the clock and sticks out some!

I first started with a paper lolly pop stick which the whole winder is built around.



I simply wrapped paper around this stick to make the winder:





The winder has a locking nut which was simply card cut into shape an place on the stick:







Next is the knurled grip which was made just like the watch face bezel:





Next I cut the end off and capped it:



Test fit:



A little paint:



Final fitment on the clock:



I placed some silver washers on the bottom a few weeks ago, they look as if they should be there so they are staying:







Side view:



Front View:



Hope you enjoyed this one?

Regards

To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke: Any sufficiently advanced paper modeling technique is indistinguishable from magic.

Even watching you do this step-by-step, I can't believe the final results.

Somehow, I get this feeling that if you ever decided to do a model of the Prague Astronomical Clock, it would work.

Amazing work. Can I be the first to say 'I can't believe that is paper'

UH BOY! Al's going to dazzle us with another 1:1 Scale interment panel.

Al please please make your parts templates available. if it's a question of getting them drawn into a graphics program I'll volunteer to do it.

Are you back to England?

Jim
