1/16th scale Vintage Prop

Postby Mike B » Fri Dec 30, 2011 1:12 pm

Here is another project made from card - 36 layers!

The nuts were made from eyelets left over from TITANIC, flats filed on them and then a piece of brass rod glued in them.

Unbelievable what you can do with paper! :o

For anyone interested in how it's done, http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/desi ... #post35343

Very impressive Mike. Nice smooth finish. Did you sand it and recolour the edges ?
Cheers

I used card that was coloured right through (got it from a craft shop) - Buff coloured card and Brown coloured card as in the instructions in the link. Only a very light sanding was needed when it came out of the jig. I did not use varnish as used in the tutorial but sanding sealer. In total, I used about 5-6 coats, sanding down between coats until I got the glossy finish that you see. The tutorial was 100% and it came out just as it said! :dance:
