We are re-structuring ModelGeeks forums (as you may have noticed). There are a few new forums on the site, one of which is for Paper Models. This is a growing segment in the scale modeling world and we are happy to have a place here for those who make them.

We will also be happy to feature paper models on ModelGeek and reviews as well. So remember you are integral to the growth of our sites and submissions are welcome.

Thanks,
Jim

Delta 7 Studios is another good source. I've built theirs and enjoyed them very much.

There are a plethora of sites out there to download free models for those who are just getting into it.

Did some research on the web and downloaded a few paper models. Should keep me busy for months. This is all new to me and have only worked with plastic models. Just completing one and wanted to try something new.
My wife is a graphic artist and works at a print shop, so she is able to print them up for me on good card paper and also enlarge the scale.
I will keep the group posted and will send photos on my projects. I don't know how good they will be...... .......this is a new style for me.....so be kind.

Talk to you soon.

Hi All,

While I have been more into plastic static models more than anything else, the last paper kit that I got my hands on turned into a styrene scratchbuild. It was one of the Digital Navy free downloads they offer, an Admiralty Class Minesweeper in 1/200 scale, I have been fascinated with the idea of trying my hand at one of these. I am glad to see that the Kitmaker Network has a site just for the genre. I will be posting my first effort shortly. Try not ot laugh too hard.

Nifty! Sadly I seem to suck at paper models as much as plastic ones. Of course that never stopped me from buying some!

Lying around are:
Wilhelmshaven's German Raider "Stier"
Sci-Kit's Voyager Space Probe http://spacecraftkits.com/index.html
Several copies of Harper & Row's "Make Your Own Working Paper Clock". I actually completed the frame of one which looks like I may have been channeling Salvador Dali at the time of aligning/gluing.
A half-built Cassini Space (Mars?) Probe (free from NASA http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/scalemodels/)
A completed but then destroyed Columbia Shuttle Memorial model from Delta 7 Studios
Some of the free "7 Wonders of the World" models from Delta 7 Studios (when I couldn't even build the pyramid right, it told me something - like maybe I should stick to Lego sets).

I also had some Historic Airplanes paper kit books but the pieces were die-cut and they weren't correctly aligned so the printing on the pieces once punched out is off. I'll probably toss those. There were some very interesting subjects in there like the S.55 twin-hull flying boat.

Ahoy Fellow Modlers
I hope I am in the right forum, I am new to this and it will take a lttle time for me to get use to everyone here, I posted some of my work today on my photo alblums. these are all scratched built useing card stock paper wood and wire.I resulted back to card models because of the expense of plastic today. Being retired from the navy of 30 years service to my beloved country,cant efford plastic. So I hope I am in the right formun dont want to impure in the plastic section.

NIce work Franklin! I have built exactly one paper model in my day. It was an F-105 Thunderchief and it came out looking like like a lop o' pooh. What scale is the C-124 you did? That thing looks huge. Thanks for sharing your work. "Q"

Hi Steve,

I've built a couple of good, free kits from delta 7 and will likely purchase some kits from them in the future as well. Here is another site with some excellent free downloads. The Saturn V models here are truly impressive.

Give them a look, you won't be disappointed.
