    To introduce more younger people to modeling

    As I go to meetings of all kinds of modeling, paper, plastic, etc., it appears the average age of the participants is getting older and older. In my humble opinion, modeling has much to offer in really understanding a number of things that are useful, besides creating tools for geriatic children. One of my goals is to introduce more young people to modeling and I believe that paper modeling, with it's accessibility, tremendous range of subject matter, minimal tool requirements and reasonable (cheap!) cost is a great place to start. My current plan is to set up a table at the next public model event I attend and have scissors, glue and a stack of one page models of simple design, so that one could walk away holding a completed model. I also plan a to give them a second model and handout with information including websites. It seems important to me to try and interest children growing up in more hands on, goal oriented fun, that teaches them a wide range of skills.

    Best regards,

    Artie Bob

    I wish I had some kind of club to get involved with here in wisconsin. You would think with everyone being cooped up all winter there would be tons. I am going to ask the local library if I can set up a display after I get a few models built up (in about 3 years at this rate)

    excellent idea 4x4 :)

    Well, I chose other because my sorta kinda goal is to actually build the stack of models that I have already printed out and/or bought. It could have been the complete a collection of models choice too, I guess, since the stack of unbuilt models is collecting more each month. The models have no particular theme besides being unbuilt. There are aircraft, ships, buildings, manga, cartoon characters, cars, military vehicles, etc..... You know, the usual suspects.:roll: :grin:
  8. my goal is to finish a project i started a few years ago
    a 1/5 scale caterham/locost card/paper model.....i am restarting the project shortly .. current progress ..building chassis ...

    Hmm...let me think (uh oh!)... Every model I build is exceptional, to me. The fact that I can even build one blows me away. Most of my favorite models do not have instructions.... Probably the same day I decide that picture of the week does not matter to me, I will see my model there.... I'm nearly approaching 100 builds.... I designed a model or two.... I repainted a model or two.... I would love to build all my Micromodels.... I once knew a man who claimed he had SIXTY SIX full CD's of models...no way I could ever top that!.... Goals are better for me than wandering aimlessly.... I really do like all my fingers... My vote was other, TO HAVE FUN with NO rules.

    ANY model I might ever complete would be an exceptional build for me. I have trouble seeing detail due to a stroke. Design and/or repaint ... maybe, I like all 7(?) of my fingers, trouble seeing detail remember. Sixty-six CD's? Wow! The best part about this hobby for me is that I can enjoy it vicariously through the great work of others.

    My current plans are to design and build models of elements that are in the video game "Neverwinter Nights 2" when it is scheduled to come out later next month... it was supposed to be released back in July, so I am patiently waiting.

    Other: Spread Paper Modeling Hobby in the Area

    Me, just like Artie Bob. You got it man!! There's one poem in Mexico that says "Walker, there is no walk way... you make one as you walk". :roll:

    I would like to go that way too. But I have some means to do it:
    a modelers club just across the border (they liked the idea to have a paper modeler among them),
    a local museum (that wants to be a Science museum in the future),
    two hobby stores (also on the other side of the border)
    and my kids (7 & 4 yrs).

    I'm going to steal your ideas, though, Artie Bob (maybe I'll have to pay you royalties :-D ).

    (One) of my ambitions is to design models, especially to do with 2000ad - Lawgiver, Lawmaster, Manta Tank etc. - hopefully I'll do it one day!

    Well I confess that from the moment I found this website I wanted one of my models in pic of the week and I got that now I want to design an exceptional model that someone else will build and get pic of the week with.

    I'm going to publish a science-fiction novel, so I'm trying to draw attention to my fictional world by building models of things in the novel. Unfortunetly, my gallery proposal for an art show fell though, so I don't know how I'm going to draw attention. I'm on the lookout for gallery space.
    In the mean time, I'm designing a model of a non-fictional boat. My goal is see if someone else can following my directions. It will be awhile before I start asking for volunteers(victims) on whom to test my instructions.

    looks like we have lots of budding designers out there! If someone wants to try this as a first (or second or third etc) My dad would appreciate it! It would make an awesome xmas gift - its his first car..... 56 ford :D here is a pic - but he had the cheap model without the tire on the back I do believe.
