I am relatively new to the Hobbie, I once ambiciously bought some WWG stuff and never did anything with it(titan). Now I came back and found my way here over D. Okums Awsome paper minis. I am preparing for some new sci-fi Rpg sessions.
After getting reinterested by the Ebbleawesomeness, I built the Landing platform, the Utility shuttle and now...the prowler.
BOY THOSE WHEELS! I have some problems with aligning them and getting them look good. (By the way I have to approve my skills anyway).
Any tips on those? For generell tips in clean glueing and such I will search my way through the forum before asking.

On aligning wheels, I play around with putting a support under the model, first, then shim it to the appropriate height. Then when I glue the wheels on, they are all level. I always put my glue on a piece of scrap and apply with a toothpick. I hit my models lightly with Krylon Clear before I score or cut. This helps protect the textures, but when I get glue in the wrong place, it is easier to clean up without damaging the model.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
And edge before assembly. For things like wheels, barrel tops etc, I like to color in the inside face (at least around the edges) some reasonable color to make it a *little* less obvious when it doesn't come out like a perfect circle...
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
