    My name's Alan, and I was pointed here from the folks @ PaperModeler.com. Looking forward to getting onto Card Modeling; my Interests are mainly Space, Trek/Wars, and Buildings... but if it looks interesting, I'll give it a go!

    Thanks, zathros! Guess the handle fits; I'm also heavy into FlightSimming (MSFS)...

    One question... no reviving old Threads, correct? If I find an old Thread that interests me, should I start a new one for Replies?

    Many Thanks!

    Alan ;)

    Howdy ViperPilot Welcome to Zealot!
    That's a Great combination of interest you have, that I can see leading to some really fun projects!
    Just need to find a project to get started with, if you have something in mind we would love to see a build thread in the appropriate area with pictures! If you don't visit all the popular sites like
    http://www.mypapercraft.net/ or http://papermau.blogspot.com/ and you are sure to find a good first project to get you started! As you have already heard, we here are always happy to help you with questions and how-tos. Enjoy! Hope to see some of your work!

    Thanks, Gandolf! I've got some ideas in my head, but first I need to learn the ropes. I'm practicing with scoring on a blank piece of Paper, and I'm also waiting on a steel straight edge to arrive tomorrow. I just have a wood ruler with a brass insert right now, so I'll feel much more confident when the steel straight edge arrives.

    Build thread? For sure, when I find an easy one! :cool:

    Thanks for the Welcome, Rhaven! It's a very personable and open Forum for sure!

    Looking forward to doing a Build thread in the near future; with the recent NASA Mars symposiums and the upcoming OSIRIS/REX Mission, maybe something along those lines. I also have an itch to try Paragon's rendering of the Chaffee from DS9... hmmm.
