    Well as one can see i am Gefahren's younger sister and he has introduced me to paper models that i find to be a hobby that i may enjoy greatly. I am intrested in animals and things that make you stop and look things that are out of the ordinary and of great detail things from animes as well as tanks and planes. I have a special love for frogs, their form is lovely to me. I hope to find some intresting things here and pick up a new hobby to take up my time when i should be studying but never am.

    Those projects that others say cannot be done....such as make a good looking model from a junior technician magazine, an old Maly Modelarz kit, a Geli kit, etc. Guess I'm really a contrary at heart.

    Welcome aboard elf! :grin:

    If your work is half as good as your bothers' I'm expecting some nice pieces! Look forward to seeing some of your animal builds soon. There are some really nice free downloads if you don't mind looking and figuring out the Japanese instructions!:-D



    When you see your bother tell him the display was a big hit and I had to fight to get his models back. Everybody wanted them!
    But not to worry I came home with them!:twisted:

    i have completed my first model and well the frog was finished rather quickly annnndddd......its ok it wasnt made to be complete nor perfect so im going to print another and make this one a slight bit differently getting rid of the tabs in some places and painting it to further hide seams that have lil dotted lines as well as the fold here dotted lines....and i started on a potted plant that looks more promising in realism

    im slowly working on a little motercycle that looks like its going to be really neat and i need to know where i can get something small that would deposit the glue in tiny places in a neat and orderly fashion...what can i use from where

    what about a disposable syringe? Just keep the needle capped to avoid the glue hardening inside... and if it does, just discard it and use another. Needles come in a different variety of gauges... you can use those used for horses injections, which are bigger than those for humans.

    Hello and Welcome, Elf!

    Hello Elf and Welcome to the Nut House, ahem, Forum! :grin:

    I usually put some glue in a small container with a lid and for gluing a real small spot I use a toothpick.
    Just sticking the tip of the toothpick in, you still get a drop on the end of it, which is too much.
    I then put the toothpick against the inside wall of the container and spin it with my finger tips till I have just the right amount of glue on it.
    It takes a little practice but you'll get the hang of it quickly and toothpicks are cheap.
    It can be time consuming if you have a lot of small spots to glue, but I have not tried the syringe yet.
    You can probably get one at the local pharmacy, just talk to the pharmacist and explain why you need it.
    I don't know how much one costs, like I said I have yet to try it but I am sure they don't cost much at all.
    Do you have any friends who are diabetic? If you do, I'm sure they wouldn't mind giving you one and that would be free! :grin:
    You could also buy the cheapest, smallest paint brush you can find and trim it down some with scissors.
    I buy a pack of 12 small brushes for $1 at a hobby store.

    I hope some of this helps you.
    Post some pictures of your models too! I'm sure everyone here would love to see them.
    Again, Welcome!

    thank you ive started using an oversized needle that of course is bout the size of a toothpick and just holding the bottle of glue inbetween my feet and squeezing it just a lil whenever i need another small blip (things where i use my feet like that is why my bf picks on me and calls me monkey feet and gets me stuffed monkeys for valentines) and i am currently working on this little motercycle and a trebuchet and thoe im a beginner i couldnt stand any more under 2 hour things plus the didnt look that good once you picked them up and saw the lack of detail in areas where the crater knew it wouldnt be seen

    A "Blip", I like the sound of that. If it's not in the dictionary, it should be! :grin:
    Your going to tackle a Yamaha?!?
    I wish you luck, I've downloaded all of them, but I havn't tried one yet.
    I think I need to develop my skills a little more first, but they are near the top of my "ta do" list.

    Well...I'm only a MONTH late saying hello...
    Welcome Elf from Earth!...really nice planet...been there!
    Good luck on that Yamaha, you are a brave soul. The most sheets printed on any paper model I have built so far was 21? and it was a simple Christmas Tree from Canon (see pic at link below). I have downloaded over 5000 free models but have built only a select few.
    Anyway, Welcome to the forum.
