    Here's a guy that built a scratch built Jeep completely out of paper! Interesting way how he made the wheels and tires.

    This is brilliant, you can never tell that it is paper, a fantastic model.

    I am truly amazed at what some modelers can turn out in paper, it's as good if not better than some plastic and resin models I've seen. The best ones to me are the ones that burnish and file some parts, fill-in seams, and paint their models instead of just leaving it as they are printed. I definitely want to try one of these one of these days, it's even amazing at some of the free ones you can find on the Internet, as good as some of the best ones you can buy.

    Here's a link to a site that has a couple very good free paper models to download. Here's a Stuart VI
