    Hi friends,

    Just a quick introduction to a wonderful bunch of creative folks! I'm a model builder from way back. first plastic kits, then kit bashing. I'm retired now in my fifties due to a disabling back disease and have been building with paper for the past dozen or so years (can't afford those plastic things anymore). I admire the talent it takes to create these great ships, guns, and figures. One day I hope to learn to design some myself. I am proud to be affiliated with your group and look forward to being a Zealot a lot!

    Best wishes,

    PS. I'm searching for a papercraft file to build a 1:1 replica of a ppg pistol from Babylon 5. Also any props from Star trek: Enterprise, such as the phase pistol, tricorder, and communicator. all help is appreciated!

    Thanks Much!:wave:

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    We have many members who started out in plastic and switched over to paper (for many different reasons). If you have any models that you have already build, please post photos. Everyone loves to see photos.
    If you have any questions, comments, concerns, need help or advice, please feel free to ask. We will do what ever we can to help you (or at least point you in the right direction).

    Once again, welcome aboard, and I hope that you enjoy yourself here.

    Thank's folks,
    I've quite a few models laying around gathering dust. If you think anyone would be interested i'll post a few soon. most of the work I see on here puts my stuff to shame, but I'm not afraid of a little criticzm.

    looking forward to exhibiting some of my better stuff in the coming days.

    By all means post all that you have. When I first found this place (as well as free kits), I really was not that good either. My first kit that I built was Martin Sanger's Thunder Fighter (which can be found here: http://www.paperaviation.de/Science-Fiction/science-fiction.html). It really did not turn out that well.
    This is a GREAT place for constructive criticism. Just remember one thing, YOU ARE YOUR OWN WORST CRITIC!

    With that said, let's see what you have!!!
