I may have missed this but I didn't see anything on joining cylindrical sections such as fuselages and rocket bodies where there are different techniques for joining them (butt joint, tabs, former and strip). Also, perhaps the use of sanding sticks could be embellished to include their use for beveling edges such as the inside of the trailing edges of wings, wing fillets, or parts cut with scissors that may require a bevel.

Thank you for the PDF "Principles of Paper Models v0.56".

On page 50, Punches,
The sentence:
"I will place another piece of cardstock underneath the one I am try to cut and punch through both at once."
might need the word "try" changed to "trying".

-Steve

I think a section on some kind of scratch building would be a valuable addition

On our forum papermodelers.sk we have a whole thread on this issue for about 8 years (we worked on it for more than a year), where the techniques of building models are divided into categories and are described (beginners, advanced, shaping parts, painting models, etc.), unfortunately only in Slovak language, English version we haven't processed it yet.

Maybe you will find some inspiration there and there are also various questions answered (for example, wheel production, wheel strings, how make round sidewalls of tyres) and links to threads in the forum, where these techniques are described by members.
Unfortunately, the videos we made for this have been changed to private on youtube and cannot be played, we will have to make this visible to everyone.



If anyone is interested, here is the link.

Thank you. I've been busy with other things for a couple of decades, but the continued web hosting cost is very marginal. When I quit my day job, I may try to bring the FAQ (and my HTML skills) into the 21st century, but I think much of the original intent and purpose of the FAQ has been superseded by forums such as this one.

Viewing the website through Google Translate produced a very acceptable English version!


Thank you for the book Thales.
