Here is my 2nd Paper Model. I spent 2.5 months to complete it. This model is 1:18 scale.
Nice job! What did you use make it glossy?
Koolik kool !!! 8)
An incredible model :-o. Congratulations !!!
That turned out SUPER! nice job
Can you tell us something about the glue you used?
There is a thread around here about the paper & glue to use, and glossy was not among the easiest paper to use when the wrong kind of glue is used.
Sorry, double vision here.
This is the glue i used. I think it was not the most suitable glue for the glossy paper. It's not easy to remove the excess glue from the gloss surface.
Thanks for your warm welcome. I'm quite new for card model. I'm so glad if I can learn and share paper model knowhow with you.
I used foto printing paper (glossy type) for the chassis. And matte paper for in side the cockpit.
Very nice! I'll have to build that one some day. Last year I built the WRC2005 version, which is smaller scale and no interior:
Again, great job!
Start it soon. This model is very nice in details. Interior is so cool. You can download for free here. (May the same site where you got the 2005 one.
And I posted my progress report of this model here.
Sorry it's Thai lanuguage but I posted alot of grogress pictures.
Very nice build!!
Now you have my interested in building the WRC Impreza's!!
I checked out the link for the 1/18 scale WRC2006 but the PDF file has a master password. My adobe photoshop won't allow me to open it. Can anyone help on the password.
Again, great build!
There is no password. You have me confused.
The one I have has no password so I followed the link and clicked on the download to see if it is any different and it just opened right up in my browser.
Do you have the latest version of adobe?
I think what hawk is saying is that there is a password protection on the file, not the download. This is to prevent other people from editing or changing the content of the file. Try opening it with Acrobat Reader instead.
Yes. There are permissions to print only. The file is owner passworded and not client passworded.
Yes. I downloaded the WRC2004 and WRC2006 files. I'm using Adobe PS 7 to open PDF files. Everytime I try to open them, it asks me for the master password.
If you are just trying to view the PDF file and print it, then you will need to open it with the Adobe Reader. It's available here if you don't already have it (which would be hard to believe):
If you are trying to open the file in Photoshop to do some editing, you can't because the creator put security on it to not allow editing or copying, as others have already said. There are ways around that, however, which you can search for on your own, but Ghostscript might be a place to start.
Thanks for your insight. :grin:
What I've done ios downloaded a PDF viewer called "Foxit" its small..opens up all PDF files.
So...I've started work on a WRC2004 Impreza. :twisted:
You car is superb. I want to play with it, and I thought I was past that!!
Our local HobbyTown USA is having a model contest in April and this may have to be one of my entries! Can you give us any more detail on the type of glossy paper that you used (thickness, brightness, etc)?
