    Hi, I just found this site and i'm planning to start with papercrafting. I am not sure how and where to start. Hope this will be a fun hobby to start with.

    Welcome, man!

    As a great friend says, the easier way is to choose something you like, and start from there. It'll be a lot better to state your prefferences (Sci-fi, Warhammer, Ships, you name it), and you'll see a lot of people trying to help out.
    Once you start building, please, post a thread with some pics, and share what you've learned. Anyway, there's a section of tools and tips, and you can dig many treasures of hobby knowledge in there.
    So, make yourself comfortable, check the rules, ALWAYS listen to the Moderators (they're very accessible, gentle guys), and remember: ZEALOT is special because WE (INCLUDING YOU) make it so.
    Welcome again,

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Papercrafting and paper modeling is one of the cheapest, FUNNEST, and most ENJOYABLE hobbies that you can get stuck in.

    A few things though that I would like to ask.

    what sort of genre are you interested in (i.e. SCI-FI, Anime, Militaria, Architecture, or what ever else)?

    Is there something in particular that you are looking for?

    If you have any direct questions, please feel free to ask and we will do what we can to help you (or at least point you in the right direction).

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

    Thanks for welcoming me guys. As for specific genre, I have not yet decided on. I have looked at others work and they all look great. But due to the wide genre, i could not decide on one (ouch). Can anyone help me choose? I think i want to start on simpler stuffs to get the hang on it.

    To be honest, there are a myriad of different models on the internet that cover (most) every genre out there (SCI-FI, Anime, Militaria, Architecture, or what ever else you can think of).
    So I am quite certain that there is a model for what ever you like.

    With that being said, here are a couple generic projects that you can do, just to get you building and to teach you the basic fundamentals of paper modeling:

    Once you have had a chance to play around with these and you have figured out something that you really want, we can direct you towards models that you will enjoy.

    Good luck with them and I look forward to seeing your work!!!
