I too would very much like to see a demonstration of your techniques... If you are willing of course.
I will share my secrets... well not all my secrets! Oh... you mean about papercraft? Ha ha! I will... do not know when, but I will do so.

Sweet! One of my favorite cars of the period. Another would be the 50, 51 bullet nosed Studebakers. I like the front of the Champion, and the roofline of the Commander. And the 53 Commander - one of the most beautiful cars ever designed.

Cami, You did a great job on these cars.
I have always loved this car. I was able to see a real one at a car show years ago.
The closest that I ever got to owning one of these, was a large diecast model that my dad eventually latched on to.
I was wondering though, where did you get this kit, or is this something that you designed?

Another great job, Cami!
It would be cool to photoraph all your Buicks, Caddys and Tuckers (and what more you have built?) together.
Are you going to build a diorama in style of 1950's?
I wish you much success and wait for next wonderful modelcars to show.

Though not nearly as malleable as sheet metal, paper can nonetheless be "curved" or rolled as metal workers know it.

I have a set of tools that I machined to do just that and have done so quite successfully on large scale aircraft.

I rolled the flat panels on this FJ-1 Fury to achieve the characteristic smooth compound curves of a modern jet instead of the choppy looking truncated cone sections common to paper models.

I am not sure how successful this technique would be in 1/43 scale, but I have no doubt it could be done in 1/25 or larger scales.

TUCKER THE MAN AND HIS DREAM!
Jeff Bridges was brilliant as Preston Tucker!

You seem to be a real fan mbed2010, that explains why the your Tucker is the oldest of your concept cars line.

It would be cool, but that is alot of work... a dealer's showroom? Maybe someday...

1/43 scale is not small enough to prevent shaping paper, I have built a 1/87 '53 Buick Skylark... it needs some refining, but it works. The thickness of the material must be considered though.

The plane looks awesome! What is the scale?
