Hello

Just started on forum. Lots of good data here.

Like Aircraft and Trains.

Looking for gaming terrain, too.

Looks like a lot to explore here.

Have not built any models, yet, but it sure looks like fun! I tried an aircraft model, but got lost in the Japanese instructions. But I had a lot of fun.

Scott ;-)

Dear Scott:
I suggest starting with something with instructions like from the Canon paper model site, they have some of the best instructions
Enjoy,
Miles

Welcome Scott. Here you will find everything you need and much more. I agree with Miles, the Cannon website is excellent, clear instructions and great models.

Thanks, looking forward to getting hooked. Where would printer recommendations be found? Which forum would be where to look and ask? Planning on printing out models, I assume ink jet is a good way to go.

Inkjet works fine; some people like to spray a sealer like Krylon sine the inks are water soluble. Any good color printer should work. Mine’s a Canon, but other brands are fine too. And welcome!

Thank you, I kind of figured that, I had an EPSON artisan, with CIS, but, it jammed on the last sheet of a print, and it appears the print head got damaged, no amount of cleaning, worked, it got worse and worse. So, I just picked up the EPSON ET2750, built in in tanks. Printed my first model, from Canon site, went well. It took 65 lb cardstock, no problem.

That brings up the question of stock. I have seen a few references to 110lb cardstock. What would that be used for?

Now the cutting begins. Best tools?

Scott ;-)
