New here

Hi everyone! I'm new here but not so new to paper modeling. When I was small (back in the '60's) I got my start building card lunar modules. Now I tend a bit more to papier mache rather than card, but always enjoy seeing what people do to push the envelope in any medium.

Here's a dinosaur skeleton I did over at Concept Art. Most of it is paper (glued onto wire fore posability) thugh some of the parts are built up with white glue, which I suppose would be "cheating" in strict card modeling terms!

I hope to learn new tricks with paper while I'm here.

Welcome aboard! It's more about the models than the medium (though for cheap, flexible, non-toxic, graphics quality and more you can't beat paper for a primary material). Looking forward to seeing your creations.
