There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

What an amazing and so well-produced video!  That guy should move to Hollyweird.  ::) ;D

Here are two links to places...one in the US and one in Poland...I've had luck with!

Great links and I have built a ww1 ship in the past from card. But I do have a question. Why the weird scales?? 1/33 and 1/50th.


Just wondering, since it would be easier for scratch builders to use the paper models as templates in plastic card if the scales were more standardized. Or is it deliberate. As in 1/33 is to 1/32 and 1/50 is nearly but somewhat under scale for 1/48th.

Hello Ray...

I think it's because this may be related to metric scales as papercard models are basically a European invention!  Not exactly sure but I think that's close.  And yes...they are super close to 48th and 32nd too.

P.S. Love your avatar...I've got a 1972 R75/5 Toaster and love it!
