Corona virus pauses model

Dear all

As the virus gets a hold in the UK the Saturn V model has had to be put on pause as the model lives in my office at my work which has been sealed.

Who knows when it will be reopened but until then I shall try to continue the the life size Buzz and Neil models whenever possible.

Try and keep safe

Regards

Kevin

I’ve just come across this thread.

I’ve only just discovered that paper modelling is a thing.

To then see this is just incredible!

Absolutely astounding! I haven’t read the full thread yet, but I will be doing!

update and offer

Dear all

So it is just over a year since lockdown started here and my office and building were sealed.

During that time a very limited access was allowed to my office for a few hours a few months ago after which is was re-sealed (which is the current state at time of writing).

The big 1/24 scale model all seems fine it its storage boxes (they did not seem to have been moved).

You may recall I was also building the 1/48 model at the same time. Unfortunately this (along with a number of other things) has been badly damaged during the office being "deep cleaned". My current thinking is that I will not rebuild all the damaged parts so I will not be continuing with the 1/48 model when I eventually return to the 1/24 model.

I also have in my office the famemaster 4D vision Saturn V

4D MASTER






and 4D vision space shuttle


4D MASTER






They were also damaged so when everything opens up I will have a go at repairing them.

Looking at them and thinking about having to repair them got me to thinking that these would make fantastic paper models. Of course I do not have the knowledge or skill to design such things. But if anyone who does design wants to look into such a project I am more than happy to take a number of photos of these models along with any measurements if that would help them.

Just a thought

Regards

Kevin

Ugh. That's a shame about the damage to the 1/48th-scale build. That's got to hurt. There are times we tell ourselves, "It's only paper. I can rebuild it," but the fact is, we -- and you in this instance -- put in a lot of hard work.

I hope this is a reminder to folks to get vaccinated and wear a mask. We need to stop this pandemic.

It was more of a "oh dear" rather than a "who did this" moment as I am sure the people who did the cleaning were under a lot of pressure to get a humongous amount of work done and so it was a genuine accident rather than a "who cares" action (if you get what I mean).

It is a shame but I try and keep the mindset of "always moving forward".
