Hello from Tennessee

Hi all,

I'm a long-term plastic aircraft modeler but am new to paper modeling.

Some of the work here is just fantastic, I'm very much looking forward to learning more about this new angle on the small-scale world!

Hey Mike,

Thanks for joining, you will find a multitude of interests here, and skill levels, but don't let that scare you off, we all started at the bottom with a flat sheet of paper.

And a lot of us have built plastic in the past, and some of us still build, and myself, try to collect the Moby Dicks of the hobby since childhood(i am half way there)

welcome to the forum. in here you will find an entire world of paper craft that will amaze and delight as maybe no other hobby can. the process is a very simple 5 steps. print, score, cut, fold, and glue. with these steps most anything from ant to ziggurat can be built.

Hello and welcome. You sound like many of us here. Started off in plastic, then made the change over to paper.
Just take your time, look around at all this site has to offer. Donít be afraid to ask questions.
Enjoy.
