    Basic card modelling tools are something to cut with (scissors, X-acto, or fancy high quality blades - all work), something to fasten with (tape, glue-sticks, Elmers, super-glue, ...), and a model to start on. Seriously, you can go basic or fancy but you probably already have all the tools you'll need. Check the various build threads here for more info on choices.
    First projects can be found by Googling your interest area along with either "paper model" or "card model" in the search.
    If you like boomerangs, start with free paper toys at . Follow the "free paper toys" link at the bottom of the page for an index that will take you to many interest areas.
    Once you do one or two, you can tackle some complex free or commercial kits - properly done they rival any plastic or die cast model.

    I think this is enough to start with, knife, excel #11 blades (from my private vintage) cutting mat, small scissors, white glue, aluminum rods, tweezers, metal ruler and oh yes, a brain

    Please post your first build so we can all chuckle and offer sage advice.
