Greetings to all of you, Zealotians, I hope to become one of your ilk if you find me worthy ... I grew up with plastic models. I had many of the Aurora monster models; King Kong, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Godzilla, Wolfman, Phantom of the Opera, Frankenstein and of course, Dracula. I learned how to glue and paint with a bottle and a brush (and wondered why I was dizzy when I got up when mom called me for dinner). I watched every Sci-fi movie I could on TV, back when it was free and on a b/w screen. The Day the Earth Stood Still, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Godzilla (the first one with Raymond Burr), Mothra and the Forbidden Planet to name a few. I then migrated to building model cars and then 1/32 and 1/24 scale slot cars. We had several tracks in the area and one within walking distance. Then, I hit 16-17 and I was able to drive a real car and discovered ... girls. Well, I did find time to rebuild a couple of motorcycles and several sports cars, and graduated from college over the years but my modeling went downhill until several years ago when I taught myself 3d cad (Intellicad, BricsCAD and QCad). I became pretty good with Open FX 3D and POV-Ray, too. But I wanted to find something that would help me visualize and possibly fabricate my own 1:1 scale car bodies. I then stumbled across papercraft models and this site in particular: 100 Exceptional Free Paper Models and Toys (the jaguar, maria and robby the robot had me drooling) http://www.creativecloseup.com/100-exceptional-free-paper-models-and-toys There are a LOT of japanese sites for beautiful car and race car models, but Uhu's beautiful sci-fi models brought me to this forum. So, I am making a lap in time, but I no longer feel alone in my fanaticism. Thanks for reading, Forrest PS I am a fledgling when it comes to papercraft. I've started two and finished only one. I am spending some time with Blender and Rhino but it is summer here and most of my free time will be spent bringing 3 engines (2 car and 1 bike) back to life - or at least try. I'll have more spare time on my hands when fall/winter returns.
