If I could ask, how did you get the metallic outer for the CM?
Also, do you know where Carl Hewlett's SM is available?


It's a foil-covered cardstock from CutCardStock about 80# weight, I think. As Billy Leliveld described it, I reversed the images from the model and printed them on the backside (white paper) of the foil cardstock. I used pinholes to mark the placement of panels, handholds, and such. It was easy to work with and fingerprints and glue spots can be polished off with a damp cloth.

You might find something similar at a scrapbooking store or art supply shop. If all else fails, I have an unopened pack of 25 letter-sized sheets that I'll never use. (I was going to do the SM in foil until I realized that was not correct.) PM me if you're interested. I'll charge less than I paid.

Aleen's Tacky Glue (my usual sticky stuff) will stick to the foil but not very securely. I used WeldBond glue on the foil for a stronger bond -- the same stuff I use for gluing plastic canopies to paper.

Is there any place to buy Ken's 1/12 CM model? I looked at but that site is under construction.
