If you are just starting and interested in old cars go to this site, https://creativepark.canon/en/, look under papercraft and vehicles. The instructions are clear and if you take your time, you can achieve good results.

Welcome to the insanity

Thanks

Thank you all for the welcome. I am in awe at the ability of you folks and appreciate the time spent. I had my truck displayed at the Army Heritage Center in the WW1 area where several of you modelers were set up. I am looking for someone to design a very simple paper model of a 1918 Dodge Brothers staff car. A buddy and I display at military events and it would be great to give a model to kids of the 10 to 13 age range. He and I also belong to an International club so I would like to be able to print the car in black for a civilian model. Any help would be appreciated. We currently give a coloring book of DBs to younger kids.

Your Dodge vehicles were hits with the crowd on Saturday, and I took several photos of that magnificently-restored Dodge staff car on Sunday. Was it you or your buddy in the WWI campaign hat and uniform?

I am in the process of slowly posting the photos I took (mostly of our paper modeling group, but a few of the reenacts and exhibits) and should have my photos of the two Dodge vehicles up tonight or tomorrow.

There are a couple of paper modelers in Carlisle, and Kevin (builder of the Dragon Wagon) lives in York.

Thanks Don, I believe I spoke to you on Saturday. I own the truck and my buddy owns the staff car. His car was on an Army base from 1918 until he bought it. My truck was used at a military training camp until about mid 1930's. There are only 5 trucks like mine known to exist.I would like to come up with a simple design for a staff car that kids could assemble.

I believe these are the vehicles in question. I will eventually post more images of the Dodge staff car in my thread reporting on the event, but this year, I only captured one shot of your truck.

When you visited our display, I must have been away from the table, or I would have asked to take a picture of you. We like to capture images of reenactors with our models. I think I may have taken a photograph of you at our display in 2017.

John Dell (who designed and built that array of B-17s and B-24s), Lil, and I were in your area to look at your vehicles and to view the flyover from that vantage point. I told John, "To my eye, that's the way automobiles are supposed to look!"
