A Jaguar at 1/13th scale! It might be posible to size this up to 1/8th if you have the equipment!

I've done some card modelling, and the results can be really good. Some of the models on the Canon site are brilliant.

If anybody does build any, please post the diary in the relevant section. E.g. Cars, ships, etc. They have lots that do fit the Misc category. Buildings, animals, etc.
Cheers

If you want a real challenge have a look at this paper craft MT-01 from Yamaha.

http://www.yamaha-motor.co.jp/global/en ... aft/ultra/

There are a lot of other bikes at the same site.
I built the YZF-R1 a few years ago, great fun, but challenging.

I think Markus started to build the Yamaha (or some other bike ?) but it got the better of him. It's not an easy model by any means.

Here's my 1/18 card Aston Martin DBR9.
It was a freebie download a few years ago but seems to have vanished now.

I printed it on gloss photo paper and laminated the print sheets to thin card.
I also printed the wheel parts on printable chrome foil, and the window parts on OHP film.

It was a mega-complex kit and it took over a year (on and off) to build it.
Great fun though.

Roy.

Very nice indeed. It looks horribly complicated ! Well done on finishing it, let alone making a great job of it too !!

lovely build roy - and nerve wrecking too!
I know as I have started the green one looooooooooong ago - I even thought of taking the pattern and making the whole car out of styrene but then readymade 18th scale dbr9's appeared and interest in further work sunk rapidly...

Lovely model - I can well believe it took so long.
It's a pity there's not much on here about card modelling - as you've shown it's as intricate and demanding as plastic,wood or metal.

Herewith one of my humble efforts: SS Grainton, a WW2 Liberty Ship. It was quite a satisfying project, as I made it for the son of the ship's wartime captain.
