    Some of the models these guys do in paper is just breathtaking.

    I have a couple paper models here, just never had the courage to try one, I just might now that they have laser cut frames available, I was just never that enthusiastic to try to accurately cut through 1 mm thick card, especially items that have a lot of curves. I guess I could always substitute thin balsa.

    Here are some very good paper modellers out there, and yes I fully agree with slingshot, their models are just breathless. I tried a paper model once, and ended up kicking away, what was left of it.

    I have seen lots of different stuff in paper from ships to planes to trucks and if you just see the finished product, you will not be able to tell it is paper. The first impression is that it is a normal plastic model. One thing which always baffles me, even when i see the step by step is how they achieve rounded profiles like engine cowls, mudguards, even propeller spinners and wheels made totally from paper. These guys have taken modeling to a new level.

    I've seen some descriptions where they said they would burnish the paper into the shape, but that didn't really describe how they could get compound curves like they did. Some of the better ones I have seen, it looks like they cut the jagged edges off that are used to glue the parts together and replaced them with tabs they glue on so the parts and up butting together. Here is an airplane where a guy has a lot of step-by-step photos, it's in Polish and the online translator and gives some interesting translations. I was thinking of getting this one to try out as it's available at an online story here so the costs are reasonable, especially for shipping, the kit and laser cut frames are around $16, I saw a couple builds of it and it didn't look that good, then I ran across this build, very good and I will be saving some of the photos just as a guide on how to do some of these.
